Caveat: These incidents are about the institution of whiteness. These are not personal attacks on individuals or so-called “haterade.”
4. All of the unconditional praise heaped on Mac Miller’s rhyming skills when he will never even come close to Eminem’s abilities on a bad day. Since when did Donald Trump, who has a history of racist housing practices, and is a birther, care about hip-hop enough to compliment a rapper? And no, this isn’t just about Trump complimenting the success of Miller’s song “Donald Trump” because he obviously listens to Eminem. Don’t agree?

Less than 20% of black children are being raised in nuclear families. Until we stop putting our heads in the sand and use race baiting the trend will get worse
Yo “sm” should shut the fuck up because he/she obviously do NOT know the work of Teena Marie who was NEVER an addict to any drugs. Meanwhile you yourself or your fucking loser ass kids are probably all addicts or poor. She was more talented than you on her death day than your best day so shut the fuck up and eat a dick. Faggot.
