Eminem appeared on “60 Minutes” last night, and, when anti-bullying advocate and journalist Anderson Cooper questioned the controversial rapper about his misogynist and homophobic lyrics, Eminem gave a rather shocking reply to the question, stating he was “attacked” on his violent lyricism towards women and the LGBT community because he’s a White rapper.

The 37-year-old Detroit emcee said, “I didn’t invent saying offensive things,” and suggested that Black rappers aren’t singled out the way he has been.

“I felt like I was being singled out, and I felt like, is it the color of my skin?” The rapper continued, “There’s certain rappers that do and say the same things that I’m saying, and I don’t see no one saying anything about that.”

This is actually disappointing and demonstrates how entitled Eminem is. To suggest that he’s been attacked because he’s White is ridiculous and simply untrue. Black male hip hop performers have been “attacked” for their lyricism from the very beginnings of the musical form.

Some of the earliest examples of government and community angst against hip hop’s sometimes derogatory lyricism is N.W.A. The Compton-based 80′s group was confronted by government officials, and was actually banned from several mainstream U.S. radio stations and networks like MTV because of their lyrics.

We can also cite controversy with Ice T, 2 Live Crew, and Tupac—whose lyrics prompted public court hearings. These artists who have clearly inspired Eminem. Contemporary examples are with his own signee 50 Cent, and artists such as T.I. and Kanye West, among others, who constantly receive criticism because of their lyrics or public statements.

Eminem’s response is an extension of modern White male privilege. He has rhymed hateful and disturbing lyrics about women and gay people, consistently using words like “bitch” and “fag.” He should take responsibility like most Black rappers have instead of complaining about it.

Does he think he should be somehow exempt because of the color of his skin?

Watch the interview here! Cooper discusses Eminem’s lyrics around the 8:20 mark.

  • bob

    what he meant to say is he is a bigger target because he is a white rapper, your a white rapper that is why your success has been magnified and that is why the amount of criticism you receive will be magnified your the biggest selling rap artist ever you think because your music reaches more people that you will not be talked about more come on this is simply common sense

  • Dawn

    I kind of understand what Eminem means. While many rappers were already out on the market with misogynistic and anti-gay lyrics, the major groups who work to fight against each – GLAAD and NOW (National Organization for Women) – didn’t actually make a big fuss until Eminem came on the scene.

    The examples of other artists given above are valid, but many were early pioneers of shocking lyrics. We went through several rappers before Eminem who were just as bad – if not worse – and I don’t remember hearing a peep from GLAAD, NOW or any similar groups.

    I’m not sure if the mainstream nonprofits are trying to avoid attacking certain artists, or if an artist who has more of a negative effect on white youth causes more of an uproar.

    While I think Eminem’s lyrics are disgusting and hateful, I do feel like mainstream media focused on him for his misogyny than Ludacris, 50 Cent (never heard of groups protesting him), Snoop Dogg, etc. Granted they’ve all caught flack, but not to the level Eminem has.

  • Believe That

    i completely agree – white entitlement at its best. I never liked him as a rapper anyway.

  • http://www.twitter.com/michaboa michaboa

    i dont agree with eminem, because a lot of current rappers have received criticism over their lyrics and have been accused of misogynism ( remember that debate BET had on hip hop, with jeff johnson?)i think eminem perhaps receives more criticism because he is one of the most popular and successful rap artists.

  • http://dezinediva.blogspot.com/ DezineDiva

    I agree with him. And I don’t know what the whole “like most black rappers have” yeah right. The constant degrading of women, and homophobic lyrics continues and never ever stops. Only the really big stars go back and retract statements and “apologize” because they have PR people who are geared to fluff this stuff over.

    Eminem is in a league of his own, and it’s easier to attack him than attack artist who “represent” a minority. He’s white, so he should pay for the things he said, over the artist and groups that the author mentioned (and let me note that the author mentioned only older groups and artists, let’s talk about these current hit makers and young fools out here saying the stuff they say and get away with it). I find the mere angst in the article to show prejudice, especially the “entitlement” statement. Eminem may be white, but he sure ain’t entitled. He struggled to rise just like so many others out there, and it’s not like he comes from a silver spoon sort of family. But to some people you just can’t be right if you white.

  • Reason

    Huh? First of all I find it hard to cry for multi-millionaires. Second, as an artist myself I live by the ethos that if you can take the praise, you can take the criticism.

    Third, is Eminem claiming that he is being targeted by white people or black people because of his race? Because NOW and GLAAD are majority white organizations. And couldn’t Tupac Shakur have claimed that the black congress people (C. Delores Tucker in particular) who were railing against him in the mid-90′s were doing it b/c he’s black? And GLAAD or white gay rights activists have gone after at least one black artist in the name of Buju Banton for his anti-gay song “Boom Bye Bye.”

    And I know Nelly could school Eminem on the tragedy of having art criticism intersecting with the personal. Remember when the (black) women of Spelman asked for a debate about his controversial rap video at the same time that he was planning an fundraising and donor-enlistment event on their campus to help his sick sister (who has since passed). He cancelled that event.

    If Eminem believes white people, his own race, are holding him to a different standard then he needs be explicit.

  • Reason

    So, basically you are a white person defending another white person. Irony: Eminem’s critics are mostly white. So shouldn’t you be preaching to GLAAD and NOW.

  • Gigi Young

    To an extent, yes, but in actuality, no. First and foremost, Eminem’s entire career blew up because of his rhymes about killing Kim and his mother. I can’t think of any black rapper who has built his (or her) career off of constant tracks confessing his desire to strangle, beat, victimize, and murder two women. And Eminem has success and acclaim and acceptance that many BLACK rappers will never have simply because he’s white. Kanye snatched Taylor Swift’s mic onstage and was murdered by the press–and ended up disappearing to retreat from the backlash. Eminem was never murdered by the press for his anti-gay and anti-women lyrics–all he had to do was go on stage with Elton John and everyone would pat him on the back.

  • Dawn

    Reason – I think he’s complaining about being targeted by predominantly white groups and a white audience…the same ones who have remained relatively quiet about Black artists’ similar lyrics. All of a sudden, national human-rights groups were protesting his lyrics while national media covered the protests and the controversy surrounding Eminem. Largely because of his A-list celebrity status, but also – unfortunately – because they seem to care more about his lyrics because he’s white (and loved by many young, white suburban kids).

    Sure, Nelly caught some flack. But I didn’t read much about that beyond Essence and a few other publications with a primarily Black audience. I don’t remember hearing anything about it in a USA Today. Buju rally? Never heard of that one in mass media either.

    Again, don’t want to seem like I’m excusing Eminem’s lyrics. But he’s right: the mainstream media and national nonprofits (who are meant to represent all of society, not just whites) jumped on him like no other artist before. Why hasn’t NOW jumped on Lil Wayne for his songs, or DMX a few years back? Maybe they felt uncomfortable going after a Black rapper for the same type of songs or that they’d stir up some backlash. The lyrics are still demeaning to women, and – if you’re going to protest a rapper for misogynistic lyrics at the Grammy awards – then all rappers should be of equal concern for their harmful impact on society.

    @ DezineDiva,

    Please tell me you understand the depths of white privilege and what it means? Please tell me you stayed awake during American History classes? Please tell me you understand that white privilege extends beyond a white person’s socio-economic status? You do know this right? Because if you do, then your argument about “oh he grew-up poor” becomes moot. Eminem’s success is partly due to him being white and rapping. To being accepted by black people.

    I dunno it sounds like to me that not even Eminem is aware of their automatic privledge he receives. Do you really think a black rapper’s video would’ve rotated so hard on MTV, if it depicted him killing his mother and the mother of his child? I mean these are the things we have to think about, but Eminem is right, no matter how weird it sounds coming from his mouth. He should take responsibility, but it doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a point.

    The fact is yes, Eminem is being targeted because he’s white and because he raps, because people do pick their battles. It doesn’t make him any better or worst than the black rappers who do it, but it does place him in a different category. 80 million albums worldwide is why groups like GLAAD go after him, why wouldn’t they? They know he reaches far more people than the average rapper, and he’s reaching their white kids.

    See, it’s already a fact that black kids absorb these songs and believe in it, so why should white kids be different? What do you think happens when a white kid, who grew-up poor listens to a white guy who grew-up poor? Don’t you see the connection and why there is outrage? Of course he’s being targeted, and sorry for him this won’t change anytime soon. White people going after black rappers won’t be as near as brutal, because who wants a “race” war? Who wants to be called racist for pointing-out the obvious. Kanye and Taylor Swift isn’t the same. What Kanye did was wrong, and the whole world (black and white) made the incident into a mountain. I don’t see the comparison. Tupac was presecuted for his lyrics, as were NWA, 2 Live Crew, etc. The difference is a lot of their critics were overwhelmingly black, with white politicians jumping in for the press. But I will say the gay community, even in a smaller scale has been pretty consistent, I mean look at Beenie Man. Just because we don’t see it doesn’t mean that these grassroot groups aren’t targeting these rappers. It’s just that Eminem attracts the larger ones, because they know it garners more attention to their cause and he’s just outright a bigger target.

    The US still has a long way to go, so for now Em suck it up…brother.

  • Reason

    No, I get where you’re coming from. But why didn’t the Spelman women jump all over Eminem? And are white critics much more valuable than black critics?

  • http://dezinediva.blogspot.com/ DezineDiva

    Yes, I know what so called white privelege is. However, I wonder if he knows what it is. There is always this argument, us vs. them. I am quite frankly sick of it. I find it to be a moot point. I also find the fact that people are so incensed over this interview to be a moot point as well. I think we need to focus on bigger issues. If he feels he is being targeted, well great, but that doesnt feed the hungry children out there both black and white (and all the other colors out there).

    For further notice, I have to not answer anymore of these replies, this argument can go on without me. My workday is over and I need to go home and take care of my family, which is the only thing I care about at 4:33pm on a Monday. Good day to you all!

  • ModellinaG6

    You guys completely missed his point. What he meant was nobody in the mainstream media had anything to say about the misogynistic lyrics that many Black rappers integrated in their songs. Then along come Eminem and all of a sudden he’s America’s number one homophobe and misogynist? Give me a break.
    I say if you’re going to go hard on Eminem, you should go just as hard on 50 Cent, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and any other rapper guilty of hate towards women and members of the LGBT.
    I feel as though Black rappers are held at a lower standard, like we should come to expect such hateful lyrics in our songs because it’s part of “Black Culture”. People assumed that since he’s White perhaps his lyrics are aimed at White women, thus making it more offensive. This doesn’t mean I think Eminem should get a free pass when it comes to his controversial lyrics. I simply hope you all see the hypocrisy in all of this. It troubles me that misogyny is far more acceptable when aimed at black women.

  • Dawn

    Spelman didn’t jump on Eminem because he wasn’t scheduled to perform at the school.

    Also, the problem of misogynistic lyrics in rap, which kicked off a town hall meeting at Spelman and helped launch Essence’s “Take Back the Music” program (which unfortunately seems to have died), focused on the larger issue of degrading lyrics about Black women – an epidemic, in my opinion, that has been largely ignored by the largest feminist organizations in the nation. These groups should have been infuriated and vocal about the issue before Eminem. Why should they be upset? Because for the one Eminem, there are 100 other rappers like him who are idolized in the Black community.

    A white critic’s opinion isn’t more valuablec. I think it’s about the platform on which the message is spread – and how big the audience is that hears it.

  • EmpressDivine

    @ Modellina G6 I think you got it.

    I don’t wanna give Eminem too much but I think he kinda understands white privilege and that he’s definitely benefiting from it. Take his songs White America and The Way I Am for example. Those songs (mostly White America tho) were about how he is put on a pedestal and treated differently because he is white. He specifically calls out white folks who only identify with him because he is white. It’s actually quite interesting considering that most of his suburban fans prolly wouldn’t have effed with him considering his economic background. They just assume he’s just like them. Either way like I said I don’t wanna give him too much credit becuz he rarely speaks about race.

  • opinionatedgal

    Wow,

    Here’s the difference:

    -50 cent comes out with a movie, “Get Rich or Die Trying” and it makes $30 million.

    -Eminem makes “8 Mile” and it makes $117 million. (These are their actual grosses)

    Eminem pulls a broader audience (partially on ability) but largely because he’s a white rapper that appeals to a broader audience. The difference is that 50 cent wouldn’t even be interviewed by Anderson Cooper.

    Eminem, you can’t take the good without the bad. Don’t throw race into it, I don’t think Paul Wall would feel the same way as Eminem.

  • chillchic

    @believe that,

    I second your entire statement. I never liked him either.

    The reasons that white America singles him out:

    1) He’s talking about white women (most of the time), which, as we all know, is a no-no for any artist (who really cares if Ja Rule calls some black woman a bitch, she probably deserved it).
    2) He’s more famous/revered than other rappers (I wonder why that is…), so white people care more about what comes out of his mouth.
    3) His music is just more violent and scary, period. Have you ever heard the song, “Kim”?

    Homie, I didn’t hear you complaining when you were getting all those unfair accolades because of your skin color, now you wanna play the race card?
    There were so many ways to respond to this in an intelligent manner and he didn’t even bother. But why does he need to? As a white man, he really won’t be held accountable fo anything and he knows this.

  • Sheila

  • Free

    I’m sorry you feel like you’re being attacked. True, my original reply was laced in snark, but my tolerance for people who ignore facts is low. My apologies.

    I still feel the need to reiterate to you that “white privilege” isn’t “so called” it’s a fact. It’s not some made-up fairytale by victimized blacks, it’s a fact acknowledged by both white historians and intellectuals, as well as black ones. This goes back to the 1800′s when petitions like the one about “white slavery” were the gospel. You really should read-up again on American history, it’s rich. Read-up on the colonies and how the Chesapeake ones, ahem North Cakalak are still steeped in the ideas they were founded on. And don’t just stop with slavery, please do go deep into Native Americans, and how the Irish, and Italian were treated, who back then weren’t “white”. They became white, it’s fascinating how. The Irish were considered Keltic. Learn how these very groups who were discriminated against donned black-face, so as to disassociate themselves from being black, then perhaps you will have a grasp of the fact that is white privilege, it’s something no brown, yellow, black, or blue-black person will ever be able to experience. Does it make us absolutely right? Absolutely not, but it doesn’t mean we’re grasping for straws about this white privilege thing. So, please for the sake of a reasonable conversation stop with the “so called”. I get you want to be “right” but let’s have a dialogue without snark or disparaging this website for having the discussion.

    @Modellina, I don’t think we’ve missed the point, we’re just all interpreting and expressing it differently. In the end I agree with what you’ve said. I think all sexist and homophobes should he held to the same standards of ridicule and outcry regardless of “race”.

  • sloane

    i agree.

  • chloe

    Free and Chillchic are 100% correct.

  • AGirlNamedGoys

    Eminem scholar in the house.

    You misunderstand him, author. Im sort of sad you didnt have enough insight to recognize this, nor did your editor.

    It is not directly because he is “white”, but because he is “white”, he has a larger, “white” audience.

    Therefore, “white” parents take notice, where they were previously able to dismiss and excuse other rappers on some “their, black, you expect that of savages” type.

    Not that all the “black” rappers you mentioned as controversial landed in trouble precisely because they were becoming cross over and garnered the attention of “white” kids.

    To understand anything about this, you would have to understand Em a little more, and to understand that, you would have to know something about his music, but its obvious you don’t.

    Further, the allegations are also foolish because Eminem is very anti-bullying as he was severely bullied as a child. (Also performed with Elton John, how soon we forget.)

    These groups need to give it a rest, the blame Eminem and Manson card is played, hella 2001 *yawn*

    As he ever heard of the saying… “With great privilege comes great responsibility”?

    It’s funny to me that some White people are always complaining about the responsibility they have being White but are so QUICK to accept the privileges!

    In many ways, NOW and GLAAD acknowledging him is another extension of his White privilege. What they’re essentially saying is that Eminem–what YOU say and WHO you say it to, Matters’!

    Let me makes this clear, Eminem, you are NOT the first rapper to be called out for having misogynistic lyrics but you seem to be the one who matters the most.

    I honestly wish that all Black people (and people in general) would just step away from this type of Hip Hop

  • Akai (Akai.Santiago@Yahoo)

    Didn’t the white Bill O’Reilly go after Ludacris (Pepsi yanked the ads) and Nas (appearance at a fundraiser for the victims of the Virginia Tech shootings)? Yep, he did!

    Em is being a bit of a crybaby (he can dish but doesn’t appear able to take it) and I’ve always found it hard to take him too seriously (the inside is that he’s hung like a 6 year old). Anyway I feel he was right in that he did not invent saying offensive things but find him way off base suggesting AA rappers have never caught heat. The two may have caught hell from different groups (it came from Dionne Warwick, C. Delores Tucker etc. back in the day with gangsta rappers), but both have been criticized for vile content to one extent or another. There is validity to his “it’s because I’m white” claim as GLADD and NOW never had the cojones to come after others as hard – and that has probably been over fear of being labeled “racist.”

    Let me go ahead and place the disclaimer that I do believe racism exists so there are no questions, misunderstandings or assumptions but I tend to agree with AgirlNamedGoys, for the most part, and a couple of things DezineDiva wrote (keep your head up).

    I’ve always been extremely open and eager to analyze all sides before forming my thoughts, heard the words of the Tim Wises, Noel Ignatievs, Williams, Wildmans etc., discussed the concept in depth and come to the conclusion that this allegation of ‘white privilege’ will never go far or make a dent with those it may be intended for. It’s too one-sided, whiney and reeks of frontin’ as a mind-reader (as if privy to a whole group’s thoughts) and trying to judge/act like experts on the fit of shoes one has never walked in. So, rightfully so, this concept is often ignored, discounted and doesn’t leave a bunch of open seats at some ‘table of understanding’.

    The problem with it is that it doesn’t resonate for many working-class whites; it doesn’t hold for po’ whites like Em (of which there are millions). Let someone tell them they’ve “white privilege” and wait for them to look funny, roll their eyes and stop listening — knowing they grew up in a trailer park or public housing in Whidaho, USA sometimes struggling for food with a hooka/hillbilly heroin addict for a mom often dodging the punches of a dad currently doing a 3rd bid in prison.

  • Akai (Akai.Santiago@Yahoo)

    But isn’t an important reason behind Eminem’s success being overlooked: namely, that he was put on by Dr. Dre, formerly of NWA and one of the originators of gangsta’ rap?

    I don’t think the impact of Dre’s ‘stamp of approval’ can be underestimated and the dude signed Em to Interscope’s Aftermath, co/produced, made him his protégé and pretty much give him ‘credibility’ in addition to having made mad money off of him (Timbaland backed Bubba Sparks and where did he go)? Eminem has appeared on BET often (106 & Park, awards shows) so it’s not as if whites are/were his only fans.

    Often the insinuation appears to be that all an ‘artist’ has to do is show up white and overwhelming success and money is sure to follow guaranteed, but this is hardly the case. I’ve often heard a similar regarding Lady Gaga (successful because she’s white) when that totally overlooks the 1,000′s of other funny-looking unattractive white chicks that have aspired to be ‘singers’ or dropped a CD and gone nowhere!

    Really Eminem? Like others have said, his success would not be as big if he were Black, and that’s true. He’s good at what he does, but all these praises about being “the best rapper” are not warranted. Moreover, he is COMPLETELY mistaken if he thinks that Black rappers don’t get flack for having misogynistic lyrics. Wasn’t there just an article, where I’m pretty sure I saw here, about how President Obama listens to rap music but the author claimed he shouldn’t because of the type of lyrics they portray? The latter is a different topic altogether because as the reviewer stated, not all rap lyrics are bringing people down. Anywho, I can’t believe he had the audacity to go there. I hope Dr. Dre and 50 talk some sense into him.

Why don’t those stupid women and gays and black rappers shut up already!
    After all, Eminem is rebelling against a society where women oppress and objectify women, and gays commit acts of violence against straight people that drives them to suicide.
    And just think how hard it was for him to get this far! How often does a white male make it in the music industry? (If you can call Eminem’s horrible, monosyllabic lyrics that could have been written by a foul mouthed, misogynistic kindergardener music)
    After all, growing up in Detroit makes you a gangster, right? RIGHT?
