What's really wrong with Macklemore's "White Privilege II" -- and why 2016 is the Year of Culpability

Gavin McInnesArchive

In Macklemore's new song "White Privilege II," he wonders: Does he have the right or obligation to take part in Black Lives Matter marches?

Is he just using white guilt to try to get another hit record? Does he really "deserve" his success or is it all based on "cultural appropriation"?

The fact is, nobody should go to Black Lives Matter protests. White cops aren't the ones killing young black men for sport -- young black men are shooting each other. But that's not a "cool" thing to demonstrate against.

I also talk about the idea that "whites stole rock and roll from blacks," and the dirty secret that liberals hate to acknowledge:

When it comes to "homophobia" -- and Macklemore is gay -- black hip hop culture is soaking in it.

Correction : *sadly, no, we weren’t in Iraq or Afghanistan for the cause of freedom.

DREW WAKARIUK : Sadly, no, we weren’t in Iraq or Afghanistan. Vietnam had more of that cause actually alongside the US’ posturing against China, which was their main goal. The Middle East is a Neo-Con quagmire with ideology or creed being used as excuses; For example, if 9/11 was a Saudi Wahhabist attack, why in the wake did the US invade Iraq and posture against Iran? It makes no sense, and this is the root reason why I left the Canadian Forces. You see in the end Afghanistan wasn’t really about Afghanis. It was to be the Eastern flank against Iran. Iraq would have been the Western one.

The West cannot and should not act like this. We have betrayed our own cause to exist.

Marty Smith we are fighting for freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan. And it was hardly all of them spitting on vets from Nam.

DREW WAKARIUK : It gets a tad worse when you realize a lot of these boomers who claim to ‘support the troops’ for us fighting for another nations oil and banking interests in Afghanistan and Iraq, but previously spit on the ones coming from Vietnam…

Boomers, as children of liberty and liberalism, are many different people. Hypocrites are definitely among them in very large numbers. Ask some before it’s too late if they were the ones all eager to go off grid into the bush, but now cannot bear being 5 minutes late to a bloody movie!

Acuuna: Did you just say the bar was set too high? L M A O!!!

Umm you guys were the ones which broke North American Standards there tips. Now we Gen X’ers are going to have to repeat the 1980’s in a few years… Fun for us. Well at least Trump or Cruz can fill Reagan’s role and Putin is more than a match for Gorbachev…

Ya thanks a lot. That bar was so high it smacked me right across the knees.

Hold up …
Big Daddy Kane, Public Enemy, Brand Nubian, Tribe Called Quest …
Looks like we were on the same page back in the 80’s – early 90’s. Yup, I’m another white GTA suburban kid who LIVED for hip-hop back then. Seems like there were a lot of us.
One thing to say to this Macklemore fool – Punks Jump Up To Get BEAT DOWN!

Gavin, I’d like to apologize to you on behalf of all Boomers. We set the bar too high. Sorry. You’re all fucked.

Where’s all this damn “white privilege” while I am looking for a job? I could do with some “white privilege” right now.
