I thank those who have shared with me including those who made me understand that I was on a bad road.
I don't believe you have done anything wrong but have merely inadvertently tapped into a typically submerged undercurrent.

As black/what/simple/exaggerated as I can make it, here is the model:

1. White kid hears rap and likes it.
2. White kid wants to learn "black culture."
3. White kid approaches black folks to become validated.
4. White kid learns black rappers are businessmen, not thugs.
5. White kid gets mad at black folks for not being "black."

It's not a model that creates wins for anyone.
