YMMV: Minor Threat
  • Unfortunate Implications: "Guilty Of Being White", starting with the title itself, seems blatantly racist, or at least like a wholesale rejection of the idea of white privilege - representative lyrics include "You blame me for slavery, 100 years before I was born" and "I'm a convict of a racist crime / I've only served 19 years of my time"note . However, Ian MacKaye has said it was specifically written about his experiences going to a high school where the majority of the other students were black, and they would use what they had learned about slavery in class as an excuse to bully him; According to him, no larger implications about race relations in general were intended.
