* WhitePrivilege: He has two songs by this title on the subject. The first is about how white rappers are capitalizing on a style of music rooted in black suffrage, while the second is about the controvertial "Black Lives Matter" movement.
** WhiteGuilt: The two songs are also about his self-consciousness as a white rapper, and if he even deserves to be successful because of it.
*** WhiteMansBurdon: Both "White Privilege" songs, and to a lesser extent "Same Love," have earned him criticism for speaking out on a subject matter than he can only ever have a limited understand of. Some have even accused him of playing the victim card with his aforementioned white guilt.

* ObviousStuntDouble: "Downtown" is all about riding on scooters and bikes. However, in precisely one scene in the "Downtown" video Macklemore is wearing a bandanna over his face. Not coincidentally, it's the one time he's doing a trick on his bike.
