they meant something.
Macklemore didn't only speak to his listeners but to the entire world. His song, "Same Love", is about how all people should be treated equally but not only by race but by their sexuality. He talks about how race and sexuality is the same thing and that there was war over race but would never have war over sexuality. He believes that it should be a bigger issue than how people view it. He says
Have you readthe YouTube comments lately
'man, that’s gay' gets dropped on the daily
We become so numb to what we’re saying
He also writes about how people believe that having the same sexuality can be cured by religion. The bible does state that having the same sax is wrong but Macklemore is right when he says, "But we paraphrase a book written thirty-five-hundred years ago." This statement is true and obviously things have changed, so the law should also be changed. Slowly but surely every sexuality will have the right to get married. It’s important that everyone is treated fairly and is able to be free and do what they want. People should stop using negative words in the context of gays and I believe that Macklemore did a
phenomenal job on getting is point across in his spectacular song.
