Timely and useful, I think.
Interesting, but I can't help but notice that the acoustic covers of hip-hop songs the author cites as a problem includes white hip-hop
such as justin timberlake
who grew up singing and acting and always made lots of money
like the subject matter, really don't like the condescension
there's practically a "hth" at the end
(what does "hth" stand for, I've seen it twice today and have never seen it before that)
("hope that helps" or "happy to help")
(oh god wow that is condescending)
(like "your rping sucks you should stop hth")
Yeah, I agree that the tone is a little condescending, on second reading.
I do like the article, though! It points out a lot of aspects of hipster racism I'd not seen articulated before.
