Or maybe it’s just that I’m older than the target age for a lot of social media. I swear, people argue over the stupidest shit. Seriously. “Macklemore is so real!”
“No, bro, Eminem is what’s up.”
“360 is so better than all of them!”
A) It strikes me as odd that people only ever seem to talk about white rappers in a field dominated by PoC.
B) Who cares?!?! Seriously. Why can’t they all be decent? Why can’t more than one rapper be relevant and rap about “real issues?” There is more than 1 issue in the world. Macklemore, who I actually do like, raps about what he knows. He’s got some great songs. K’naan raps about what he knows. And his issues, being Somalian, are going to be different than a white guy’s from Seattle. And both of their perspectives are gonna be different than someone like Nas’, whose will be different than someone like Tupac’s because they’re from different cities and different generations. Why can’t they all have important and valid messages to deliver? It doesn’t make sense to pit people against one another.
I just don’t get it. Music speaks to me. It moves me. It moves my soul. All different genres, styles, artists, cultures. It stirs different parts of me and in different ways. It’s beyond me that people get so hung up on this guy vs. that guy and miss the point of all of it.
okay so today I was at the mall and this girl walking in front of me and tripped and fell and instead of helping her up like a normal person would- I decided to make her feel less embarrassed and fall down too
but I guess another guy had the same idea because we fell at the same time
and then another person fell
and suddenly I was lying in the middle of an impromptu fainting mob and a lot of people were shouting
and the girl who’d originally fallen looked so fucking happy
instead of banning girls from wearing certain things how about u just ban boys from being thirsty little hoes
or just ban girls from being complete sluts
it’s the boys who are “being distracted” by what the girls are wearing to the point where they have to institute new school rules, yet the GIRLS are the sluts because the boys can’t control their dicks for two and a half seconds? yeah ok
