More Macklemore, less Robin Thicke.

And yet a huge percentage of Tumblr hates him. Not trying to be confrontational, but could someone please explain to me why this is?

Because he is a straight white guy and Tumblr isn’t always right. 

Yup. A lot of people like to ignore all the good things he does simply because he is part of the privileged. Never mind that he flat out acknowledges this in Same Love. (“I may not be the same, but that’s not important.”)

BLESS YOUR SOULS. 
BLESS YOUR FUCKING SOULS. 
I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND THAT FUCKING A LOT OF TUMBLR HATES MACKLEMORE. 
BECAUSE HONESTLY, HE WAS EVERYTHING THEY WERE COMPLAINING WHITE PEOPLE AREN’T AND NOW THAT THEY GOT A FUCKING ROLEMODEL THEY SUDDENLY COMPLAIN?????? BECAUSE HE’S WHITE????? 
Macklemore grew up privileged, yes, but he understands the inequality and the disturbing gap between rich and poor. He has a song called White Privilege: 
"Hiphop started off in a block that I’ve never been toTo counter act a struggle that I’ve never even been throughIf I think I understand just because I flow tooThat means I’m not keeping it true, nope.”
ALSO
"But as I’m blessed with the privilege, they’re still left with the scars"
AND HAVE YOU HEARD HIS SONG CLAIMING THE CITY???
"I grew up on Capitol Hill,With two parents and two cars.They had a beautiful marriage, we even had a swing set in our yard.My mom didn’t have a job, because my dad made enough money that we could live comfortably and he could support us.Now, he commute to Tacoma, so we knew we be good.But then I realized everybody looked just like me in my neighborhood.I go to school, which was diverse.But indeed us, I got sandwiches and Capri Suns well my friends ate their free lunch.It’s crazy trying to look back, cause when I was growing upI didn’t understand the fact was there’s something called a social status.And my black friends wanted my financial bracket.And then my city’s divided,From neighborhood to neighborhoodWe’re polarized but we claim we’re progressive.The police shoot in the hood but never once in my residence.As a white person been shot at we’d stopped in a Lexus.And to think that we have claimed that so much has changed”
OH GOODNESS ME, HE’S SUCH AN ASSHOLE. HE’S SO PRIVILEGED GOD.
HOW ABOUT A WAKE??? 
"Don’t wanna be that white dude, million man marchin’Fighting for our freedom that my people stoleDon’t wanna make all my white fans uncomfortableBut you don’t even have a fuckin’ song for radioWhy you out here talkin race, tryin’ to save the fuckin’ globeDon’t get involved with the causes in mindWhite privilege, white guilt, at the same damn timeSo we just party like it’s nineteen ninety nineCelebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying.”
Tumblr needs to hop down off it’s high fucking horse and instead of turning against a potential role model and ally to all that they’ve been fucking preaching about JUST BECAUSE HE’S PRIVILEGED AND WHITE, maybe make him an icon because he’s not rapping about disrespecting women. He’s making a small change. But because he grew up with a well structured family environment and he was able to afford everything he desired, he’s suddenly the enemy. 

Macklemore hate is proof that Tumblr’s brand of militant social justice is just made up of a bunch of people with either a victimization fetish and/or a hateful, angry heart seeking acceptable targets, and they then proceed to poison the people that really just want to do good, ultimately mangling a good cause beyond recognition.
And 99% of people who complain about the first lyric of “Same Love” have never actually listened beyond that. Somebody tells them “The song starts with ‘when i was in the third grade i thought that i was gay’” and they start clutching their pearls because surely the whole song is just some straight dude making lgbtqa rights all about him and how he thinks because he thought he was gay when he was eight he knows all about it. And maybe it’s not the best way to word the beginning of the song, BUT IF YOU ACTUALLY LISTEN OR READ BEYOND THAT it turns out it’s a segue into talking about ridiculous stereotypes and preconceived ideas about sexuality and questioning why someone would think it was a bad idea to be gay in the first place. And then it goes on to discuss the homophobia inherent in the music genre he’s a part of and calling his peers out on slurs and derogatory language and hypocrisy in religion, and it beautifully features Mary fucking Lambert, and goddammit I had trouble driving home when I first heard it in the car because I was fucking crying.
Macklemore is a privileged individual who consistently and vocally acknowledges his privileges and strives to use it to do legitimate good, which is everything Tumblr claims it wants, but as soon as he starts, they scream for him to shut up. Because their need to rage and scream and hate and wallow in willful ignorance is more important to them than seeing actual change take place anywhere in the world.

so glad i came across this post. you have to remember that tumblr :so called “activists” like to comment on anything that seems potentially bad, even if that means over-shadowing great points and progress that a lot of people, both gay and straight have wished for.

I’ve never seen any Macklemore hate personally, but I liked this. 

oh my fucking god. shut the fuck up. macklemore stole the beats for “thrift shop” from a black openly gay rapper, Le1f, then had the audacity to write “if i was gay, i would think hip hop hates me,” in a song on the SAME FUCKING ALBUM. WHICH HE WON THE GRAMMY’S FOR. WITH NO CREDIT TO THE ORIGINAL ARTIST.
Also, while you’re praising Same Love, notice how most people don’t even know about the original Mary Lambert song. Macklemore got 90% of the credit for that song, not the openly lesbian singer.
I also don’t understand why people are praising him buying cheap clothes when he has all of that money..??? Like, low-income families rely heavily on thrift stores/secondhand stores for affordable clothing, and even since Thrift Shop came out, the demand for used clothes has risen, because it’s “edgy.” Like, nah. If you’ve got shit tons of money, stop buying up all of the only clothes that poor people can afford, and use your money wisely. Go shopping at expensive stores meant for famous people and get some of that money into the economy. Or better yet, DONATE IT. Go buy expensive clothes and donate them to thrift stores for poor people.
I don’t give a shit about his fucking lyrics. Those are just words he spits into a mic and gets over-payed for it. I’m looking at his actions, and those ain’t doin’ shit to help the black or the queer community (aside from the occasional donation to make him look good).

thank you for this 

Also, he’s antisemitic. Race is about more than black and white. Jewish people have suffered persecution for centuries. He puts on a big nose and calls it a “costume.” Yeah! Of a Jew! Supporting Macklemore is like me supporting an ally who happens to hate trans people.

"I won’t beg someone to love me. I learned long ago that there is no use in hopeless pleas of trying to make someone stay. I am too good to chase someone who does not know my worth and I am too wild to keep waiting for someone who doesn’t acknowledge my value. I want to be loved unconditionally. I shouldn’t have to fight so hard for it. I do not have the time to prove to someone that I am worth it. I shouldn’t have to prove any of that; I am worth more than that."

When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit. 

That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.
