white rappers held to diff standard?

Postby lurker15 » Sun Feb 25, 2001 8:54 pm

Question: Why is that for YEARS black rappers (Tupac, etc) have been saying offensive things about women (describing rape and murder), gays, and whites (eg. Tupac rapping that white cops are just asking to be killed by blacks), BUT only now that Eminem is saying offensive things about women and gays does it become controversial??

In other words, why in your opinion is it that the controversy over rap lyrics only began when a Caucasian become the most famous rapper alive? Why wasn't it controversial when black rappers said similar things?

What kind of question? It's a fair question, I think.
