Racial Disclaimer for the Liberals: I know that not all rap is like this and that there are “African Americans” who’s rap is poetic, thoughtful and deep, but I'll never take the time to listen or review them because it doesn't fit in my racist paradigm.

hopeless.

i agree with fx and icarus about being to quick to lump this in with overt racism. this is far too common.

"ho ho! silly rappers! i dont understand why they need to belittle other people in order to project confidence! i guess that's fine for Some People, but it's not something i can relate to as a white guy. and you kooky liberals- i know that some 'people of african descent' might be able to meet my musical standards, but im not giving them any space in my publication, so relax, it's okay. i will casually name-drop gimmicky act marketed towards college kids and 'reggae' just so you know im not completely out of It. in fact, i really like old school hip-hop, back when it didnt have anything to do with territory or respect or money- it was just about feeling good! hip-hop died right after the fresh prince released 'summertime.'"

To everyone reading the post without clicking the link, this is obviously satire. It becomes very clear once you click the link.

That said, it only changes things slightly. This review could have easily been written in earnest. It's not exactly a very uncommon POV.

That's what makes it good satire.

Interesting point. I think everything this guy said is often said without race being overtly mentioned, but to me, in those cases, it's still there -- it's just invisible.

i didn't read the post. nor the comments/replies. but, i could never be proud to be white. it'd be a stretch to even say i was proud to be human.

"how many people feel like human beings tonight?"

fuck yeah i'd be proud to be a dolphin. zooming below the sea surface at speeds over 40mph [which is very fast for an aquatic animal]. and they also have sex for pleasure, much like i do.

i'd rather be a koala bear, actually. who doesn't like koala bears? fuck you if you don't. you've got a sick and twisted perception of this world and may a higher being have mercy on your wretched little sole.

human beings. seems like they fucked up everything for everything else.

Koalas ain't bears. Where did you learn animals? One of your shitty undersea dolphin books that don't even have words in them because dolphins can't write??? Go back to the ocean!

Marsupials are the worst. They raise their young in pouches, like dogs! Ridiculous.
