It's suggesting that he thinks there are defined parameters for what a "real black man" is, you don't see anything racist about that? It was racist when white battlers did it to D-Lor well before 2018, it was racist when they did it to 100 Bulletz or Phranchyze well before 2018, and it's racist now. People put a ton of weight on the word "racist" and consider it a heavy accusation, but that's not on me. I'm not saying it's the equivalent of like, Donald Sterling partaking in housing discrimination, but it doesn't need to be to be a racist comment. I have no idea about a "ban" or whatever, I really don't know enough about Jeffrey or his crew to have an opinion on that. If it were up to me the gay slurs would have also caused a stir but it's clear that battle rap accepts that type of language currently, especially for white people looking for a substitute for the n word.

To your point about the hypocrisy, that's absolutely true. I'm sure some of these guys were the ones talking about the guys I mentioned like that. They should be called out for their hypocrisy. But "is the response hypocritical" and "is the original comment racist" are two different questions.

And I disagree with you about what being a Trump supporter means in 2018. It isn't 2016 anymore (though I'd say it was obvious then too but whatever, now there's a track record in office), he's made it clear what he's about and it sure as hell isn't "fiscal conservatism". If someone is still supporting him, that says something imo.
I agreee with the majority of what you said, but passwurdz is biracial, if Iím not mistaken? Most black Americans are between 15-25% European anyway, and if one of passwurdz parents is white, then thatís just what it is. Thereís nothing wrong with that, thereís nothing wrong with him having a white wife/mother to his children, and thereís nothing wrong with him having children that are mostly ďwhiteĒ. (Btw, to me, race is a con. Itís just some invented shit as a means to integrate racism into our society.) And the f-bomb shit was pretty wild too, and Iím not on board with that either. My only thing is that I have watched these same dudes, for years, never give a fuck about racism until some white guy they donít like (which I suspect may be for personal reasons) calls one of their half white friendís white wife and mostly white children ďwhiteĒ and it just looks super, extra dumb to me. I am aware of the nuances, but the part I just mentioned is what I find most objectionable about this whole ordeal. They donít care about racism. This is a fraudulent campaign.
