In the wake of the #MikeBrown tragedy, the “3005” rapper ponders the benefits of being white in America…..
“Twitter activism is wack,” he wrote. “Marches don’t work anymore police should be forced to wear recording devices.” He tweeted the poem in another round of posts writing, “i wanna be a white rapper. i wanna be so white i’m the biggest rapper of all time. i wanna be so white i can have a number one song with cursing and parents are fine with it.” Gambino continued with a list of “i wanna be so big and white” scenarios including, “what if everyone starts to get big and white? what if this works for everyone and everyone can experience this whiteness and this bigness? i hope i become too big and too white.” He later explained that he’s not against Twitter or activists, but that the two don’t mix, and explained the “white rapper” rant. “If someone calls me a ‘white rapper,’ i want to make sure they undersatnd i don’t have all the benefits,” he wrote.
