      I don’t think anyone has the right to tell someone they are being sensitive. it’s all relative. what offends you, may not offend them. so does that make you sensitive?

      if people are offended, people are offended. doesn’t make them sensitive.

      not to mention, Amerikkka has a long long history of racism, institutionalized at that. So, sorry that people are fed up with it. how dare they take offense!?

        No dis… I hate to say this… but… you sound sensitive my G.

        I have the right to think they are being sensitive…
        I have the right to say what I think…
        I have the right to be wrong…

        As for this tho, whoever got offended was definitely being sensitive since Wackleboy wasn’t even imitating no one in particular…

        If you can have your opinion of them being sensitive, can they not have their opinion of being offended by Macklemore? Its a two way street. You can’t just respect the opinions of those who feel the same way as you do, but disregard those who disagree. 👏

    wait wait wait…………i thought macklemore was yall golden boy. it was all good when they pushing the ghey agenda……………but NOW they “crossed a line” when the jew’ish people are offended. FOH, i thought they was demonstrating jew’ish stereotypes when they came out with thrift shop lmao………..i kid i kid

      So by that logic it’s alright if he goes up on stage in a “random” Blackface costume carrying a water melon and some fried chicken at his next concert?

        Brooklyn Stoop can be found posting antisemitic shit anytime the word Jew comes up on this site. Apparently he hates gay people as well.

      • Aggh

        You’re saying that speaking in favor of gay rights is no different than him dressing up as an offensive caricature of a Jew. That costume is no different than black face, so if it’s fair game, black face should be too. You can’t have it both ways.

        “You’re saying that speaking in favor of gay rights is no different than him dressing up as an offensive caricature of a Jew” nope……..thats what YOU are saying.

        what i said was ” it was all good when they pushing the ghey agenda……………but NOW they “crossed a line” when the jew’ish people are offended.”

        where did you get that i’m “saying” him speaking in favor of gayism is no different then him dressing up as an “offensive” caricature of a jew?

      • Aggh

        Sweet jesus, you didn’t say it explicitly, but that’s what your argument implies. Finding it ironic that people are offended by his costume and not offended when he’s “pushing the ghey agenda” clearly shows that you believe they’re equally offensive.

        But please, keep trying to twist your own stupid words.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        i cant control what goes on in YOUR head or how YOU interpret things. but if you want to know what i mean, then ask me what do you mean by that comment. but if your gonna continue to tell me what im implying……..then go ahead

      What does promoting gay rights have to do with antisemitism?

      Oh wait, you’re incapable of interpreting the world around you.

    This the same guy that I had a song on his album about not really feelings the name brand shoes in late 2012/ early 2013
    Early 2014: Seen pictured with Jordan co-signing his shoes.
    now I love J’s but I don’t play the other side.

    This is a perfect example of “if the shoe fits”. Jews know what their funny looking asses look like.
