After receiving flack for his pop-heavy track list on his new album Revival, Eminem quickly won back his legion of fans on Thursday night (Dec. 7) with his searing record “Untouchable.”
Known for his unapologetic candor, Eminem boldly tackles systematic racism, white privilege and crooked cops from a white perspective in a matter of six minutes. For Em, because of his race, he feels safe — even, perhaps, untouchable — while his black counterparts struggle to endure countless acts of racism on a daily basis. Because of his audaciousness, Eminem was praised by Twitter for diving into those controversial topics fearlessly.

Listening to Untouchable by Eminem,,using his white privilege to advocate for black lives ——– nothing but respect for my president #revival
Eminem new track Untouchable has a message in it. You mfers just wanted him on a trap beat rapping bout drugs, bitches, and money. That's what happens when you let today's hip-hop brainwash niggas. If Pac came back and dropped an album y'all would say it's trash.

Gonna go ahead and call the new #Eminem single, #Untouchable, a win. He's gonna catch some shade for being preachy, but if there is one white boy in the world who's in a place to rap about racial oppression, it's probably him.
