Why the insults? Have I insulted you? Maybe I should now accuse you of being a pedophile given there is as much evidence that I am a "national socialist" as there is you like little boys. Why can't we just have an adult conversation without hurling insults?
Touché. It was an out of bounds jab, but you’ll have to forgive me for thinking it was out of left field to say that white dudes aren’t getting a fair shake because they can’t sing about being Nazis.

Has anyone been given a pass for endorsing ethnic cleansing in song form? It was a bit insulting to even ask if I thought that was okay, but only at first. Now that I’ve thought about it, I think it is okay (or at least, it can be) for white “d00ds” to sing about national socialism. In fact, I’ve even enjoyed songs about it.



If you ever get a chance to see The Producers, you should. I think you would like it.

Thank you for that. Being called a racist is a nasty insult and one i didnt expect from you.


I think you woyld agree, the producers songs, do not have the same “were just singing about stuff we dont agree with” for a play”, vs “i gott 99 problems but a bitch aint one”.


One is to hype an image to create a view of who that person is, the other is a showtune. I dont think the two are comparable.


I get the point thay art is art but you cant suggest that jayz’s lyrics are not trying to sell an image.
