Why can’t a white man enjoy hit em up?

Bill shouldn’t talk about race or sex. He’s a sheltered weirdo. Just shut up. You’re not the czar of everything. Ask more questions and stop acting like you got all the answers. Dunce

I don't 'think he's saying white people shouldn't enjoy Hit 'em Up, as he himself is an avowed Tupac fan. He's just trying to turn his guilty pleasure Justin Timberlake song into some kind of masculine statement, which is of course pathetic. Catchy teeny-bopper pop will always get stuck in our heads, and occasionally you end up liking the song. And as far as that kind of music goes, Cry Me a River isn't terrible. But it's a run of the mill breakup song, and nowhere near as bad-ass or scathing as Bill seems to imagine it is.

That said, you're general point is completely correct. I think it was Charlie Pierce who wrote that reading Bill on race is like watching someone drive a truck full of nitroglycerin down a mountain. He is clueless.

Phil didn't let him get away with that! You see, when Pierce wrote a scathing review of The Book to End All Books, Phil took it upon himself to delete the footnotes/acknowledgements that mentioned him for the paperback edition. HISSSSSSSSSSSS.
