    Wouldn’t care if this wasn’t the same guy crying about equality for gays all the time. If your gonna be the “Stand on my soapbox and preach the right way to the world” guy you have to be extra careful not to contradict yourself by doing something that could be seen as racist……..

    • Dinkelberg

      Nick Cannon was praised as being progressive when he donned a white face and created an entire album around white dudes being beta males.

      I don’t see how Macklemore can be criticized with such double standards in today’s music industry, considering this was a one time appearance and not entire caricature

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        nick cannon was praised???? you must’ve only read stories where he was praised and ignored all the stories where him in “white face” was compared to “black face”.

      • Dinkelberg

        The problem was that it wasn’t just outright shunned, the entire controversy blew up because people actively defended both sides of the controversy

        So when I see articles so far unanimously pointing out Macklemore’s shenanigans as racist I have to wonder if anyone is going to risk making a plethora of articles defending him too like they did Nick Cannon

        So many celebrities came to Nick Cannon’s defense and said he was pushing the envelope of comedy, so why can’t we excuse Macklemore for this?

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        it was out right shunned………the question your posing was also posed on Yahoo news. your saying people actively defended both………….who are these people cause all i saw was nick being attacked for the white face……….who was defending him?

        “Nick Cannon has an answer to critics of the whiteface character he created to promote his new album: Screw ’em if they can’t take a joke”

        “Nick Cannon Gets Booed For Whiteface Stunt, Says People Can’t Take a Joke”

        i even googled “nick cannon is right to be in white face” and still cant find these people you claim to be in favor for him in white face.
