My deepest impulses are optimistic, an attitude that seems to me as spiritually necessary and proper as it is intellectually suspect. In college and for some time afterward, my education taught me that the supreme imperative was courage to face the awful truth, to scorn the soft-minded optimism of religious and secular romantics as well as the corrupt optimism of governments, advertisers, and mechanistic or manipulative revolutionaries. I learned that lesson well (though it came too late to wholly supplant certain critical opposing influences, like comic books and rock-and-roll). Yet the modernists’ once-subversive refusal to be gulled or lulled has long degenerated into a ritual despair as least as corrupt, soft-minded, and cowardly—not to say smug—as the false cheer it replaced. The terms of the dialectic have reversed: now the subversive task is to affirm an authentic postmodernist optimism that gives full weight to existent horror and possible (or probable) apocalyptic disaster, yet insists—credibly—that we can, well, overcome. The catch is that you have to be an optimist (an American?) in the first place not to dismiss such a project as insane.

The point is that it’s possible to be a white rap fan without being an asshole. You can listen to Wiz Khalifa (I mean, if you have to) and Drake and Killer Mike and Kendrick Lamar and any other rap or hip hop artist you want–and should, because there are so many artists out there that you can explore in an instant. But don’t equate your rap fandom with understanding the people who created the music. Don’t fall into the trap that the Rap Genius founders created and think that you “know” or “understand” rap lyrics because you have a fair command of the English language and a layman’s knowledge of the vernacular associated with the music. Remember that while you are a fan of the music, the music is not about you. And please, don’t tout Macklemore or Iggy Azalea as “the best new rappers”, even if they win Grammys. We all know they aren’t.
