Eminem’s past

Looks like the past is coming back to haunt Eminem, people have produced a recording off a song with racist statements towards black women: “Never date a black girl because blacks only want your money, black girls and white girls just don’t mix because black girls are dumb and white girls are good chicks”.

He says it was something stupid he did after he had just broken up with his girlfriend at the time. The main reason I’m bringing this up is this quote from the article, “These are racist remarks by someone who has the ability to influence millions of minds.” I think accusing Eminem of racism is nigh on stupid, look at most of his collaborators and mentors. The first thing that popped into my mind though was the millions of minds thing. And then Strom Thurmond, celebrated US politician, with the power to influence millions of minds. Who stayed in US politics for decades despite having a track record for extreme racism (including running as a third party presidential candidate whose platform was essentially, don’t give black people any rights).
