Radio host Ebro Darden compared Eminem’s attitude to rap to how black people have to approach life and now he is facing harsh criticism and has to explain his point again and again.

On Thursday he tweeted:

Eminem treats Rap how Black folks have had to treat life… be 5x better, work 5x harder than everyone and still not necessarily get respect.

This statement provoked a heated discussion where opponents kept reminding Ebro about white privilege and Eminem’s commercial success. Basically proving the point that Ebro made. At some point, after explaining several times what he was talking about, he tweeted:

U are not reading. Ur just talking. This isn’t about sales, this is about the lack of respect for his contributions to HipHop & how he continues to give regardless
