    if Eminem had to rely on African Americans to make it. Dre would have made his music and content different. But Dre said Imma bout to make a billion and gave white America a Great White Rapper….case closed…..Dre was smart and knew if M came off like 3rd Bass with hip hop cultural view and philosophy from black America it wouldn't work….He had to be unique but Beastie Boyish….and wala…..AfterMath Records and all auxiliary labels are rich and so are their artists….Good for Dre who came from a sloppy fake gangsta but 100% really violent environment at Def Row…..M n M rich and got more from putting on 50cent….and the list goes on……

    Black people gave the greatest gifts to the world Jazz/blues/rock/reggae/gospel/hip-hop/rnb……. The history that it was birthed out of (Slavery/Colonialism ex…) is still very relevant to the system today……Racism is systematic its not just talking shit about people how could Black people truly be racist in this system?

    Uhuru. Right on brother Kweli. I may disagree with the political philosophy he has because it is not looking at white-power as the main problem but rather a symptom of it, white privilege etc., but he is being honest about looking at Eminem as objective as possible. I was brought into hip hop by Eminem and D12 altogether but I recognize that there is opportunism in the white community especially when coming into African culture i.e. rap. It is sad that no white rapper I know in my playlist has ever heard of white solidarity with Black Power like Uhuru Solidarity Movement or APSC. But shout out to those white folk trying to do right by uniting under black working class leadership in the Uhuru Movement.

    White people will always champion a white person in any nontraditional white arena and they will be promoted as the best or SUPERIOR, get all kinds of accolades and preferential treatment especially in this predominantly white country that's founded on white supremacy Ideals.

    Bit hard to take you seriously Talib, considering, what your wearing would cost more than most people make in terms of US dollars in a month. While whites in the Appalachian mountains would be quite happy to wear something from wall mart. Boo fucking hoo that Eminem got on the cover of Rolling stone quickly, he's talented, and it's a consumer demand. Also you were a headline act at some of the biggest festivals in the world. Tell me how more privileged a white working class guy is again? If you think we're all sailing around the fucking Florida Keys and make a 10 second phone call to make millions of dollars you're in denial or delusional or both. What about Bronx juries? The media bias black out you have considering the black on white crime that happens yet no coverage about it. What about playing the race card? Can whites do anything like that? Tell me, where do black people anywhere in the world have it as good as in the US? Your nihilistic approach to "tear down the system", has already been done. In South Africa and in Zimbabwe. Net result, White farmers don't have fucking privilege there muppet, they're getting murdered every fucking day. This is what happens to whites when they become a minority in a predominantly Black Country. So all you self hating whites take heed, while this charlatan of hate preaches falsehoods and resentment towards whites, some would have no fucking problem in executing you.

    White people can be racist.
    Black people can be racist.
    Asians can be racist.
    Get over it. We can all be racist and probably have been racist in our lives.
    Don't hide behind that Racism = Power/prejudice bullshit.

    If you cut off a white man and a black mans arm the bone is gonna be the same color. Yes I know the bone would be white but that's not the point the point is we're all the same inside and out racism is so god damn stupid. I don't care if you're fucking purple if you're a chill ass dude I'll kick it with you. We are all human and all the same. This shit needs to end and I hope it will but I guess we will see!

    He hit the cover because he's nice, this white privileged shit needs to stop!!! All the people saying this stupid shit are dumb as fuck. The only color that matters is green, matter of fact the white privileged nonsense is racism. White devils or whatever else stupid ass shit that people say, Eminem is way nicer than him and most rappers. I don't even listen to much of his music but his flow and word play are at the tip top of the rap game. The ones who just say he's nice for a white dude are haters period, he is one of the top MCs of all time. It gets old hearing white privileged nonsense, the shit sounds so fucking stupid. We are all brothers and sisters, there obviously was one man and one woman that started it all. Just like the question what came first the chicken or the egg? There wasn't one black dude and one black woman, one white dude and one white woman, one Asian dude and one Asian woman etc. that mated and had children and the process kept going on. If anybody is caught up on skin color, than you got to be the biggest retard on earth, what these people should do is all go commit suicide and make the earth a better place. I sick of hearing racism on all sides, it's the dumbest thing anybody can do it takes no knowledge or effort to be a moron. Just like when I hear on the comments we watch these interviews but the streets don't fuck with Vlad he's a snitch lmao it's like you people saying this are mad cause your favorite person he's interviewing can't keep their mouths shut about illegal activity. The stupid one is the one who brags about illegal activity and then gets mad cause they snitched on themselves, it's really ducking stupid how dumb people are. It's on all sides too, people are just idiotic.
