Man I came to America (yeah)
And I live in America (c'mon)
And I live in America

from Macklemore – American Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

It’s interesting to note that the overwhelming majority either immigrated here themselves or are the descendants of immigrants. However, much of the hate from “rednecks” like Aberdeen Washington is directed at people of other races (see Verse 1 and his feelings toward Mexicans). This goes to show how uneducated people with this narrow minded viewpoint are.
