Have you ever been hated or discriminated against?
I have

from Eminem – Cleanin' Out My Closet Lyrics on Rap Genius


Even though history usually tells the story of whites discriminating other races, the opposite is true with Eminem. He has been accused of stealing black music to make money and destroying hip-hop. See 8 Mile for examples of this.

As for being hated against, he has his fair share of that too. The Ontario Attorney General attempted to deny him entrance to Canada due to his misogynistic lyrics, and the Commission for the Prevention of Violence Against Women wrote to MTV asking them “How can you say you’re against violence when you play Eminem?”. Not to mention the countless parents that have forbade their children to listen to him.
