22380, RE: EMINEM AND WHITEY

As I've already said, Eminem is simply a dope MC. If you find it hard to believe that a white person is capable of being such, then I find it hard to believe that you are not racist. Now I'm not calling you that, but I think you should reconsider your priorities when you evaluate artists. I'm black (mostly) by the way. When I first heard "My Name Is" on the radio, I had no idea who Eminem was. I was just like, "YO! Who is this? Skillz iz up!!" I eventually saw the video, and I am proud to say I was neither surprised, nor dissapointed. Why have some Okayplayers still not learned to judge an artist by his art and not by his ethnic background? I mean excuse me, but WTF?!
