Just like how conservatives loved Rage Against the Machine then in 2020 complained about then saying "woke" shyt. It didn't once occur to them that THEY were the machine . Like their most iconic song is an anti cop anthem, them dudes wasn't paying attention to shytI’m old now, but I grew up very isolated ethnically in suburbia and hip hip in the 90’s was like..whoa. Like, an explosion of sites and sounds and cultures and stories of people and places I didn’t know.
As I got older, I had so many of my white friends who loves hip hop, that I just assumed they were all non racist, liberal and generally thought like me.
It was a real fukkin shock when I saw these dudes become Trumpers on Facebook and shyt. I was naive AF and realized just how many of them were only into for a trend, or for a minute, or for a song and really didn’t care to like or understand the people who sang it.
