Ebro is a douche, he's essentially saying that you can't have jewelry, tattoos, and be flashy etc. unless you come from an African-American background where you sell drugs and you're only trying to humor yourself to justify what you're doing. He's feeding in to the stereotypes that he hates. I'm not a fan of Riff Raff by any means, but Ebro comes off as borderline racist
pretty much.

I kinda fu*k with riff raff on some k!ll some time, guilty pleasure sh*t, but some of yall are bending backwards to miss ebros point

His point is that he thinks riff raff might actively be trying to satirize and mock black ghetto culture (and that's something alot of his hipster fans think too if you read some blogs...they think that it's all some ironic social commentary on rap music)

There's literally no backstory or history on this dude (seriously, try finding out where he went to highschool or any pics of him before this mtv g's to gents sh*t) and in Ebro's eyes there's a non-zero percent chance that he could end up being some hipster kid with rich parents from the burbs who does all of this as an intentional IRONIC joke, as opposed to genuinely like people who actually come up in a hood environment, where chains and "bling culture" are a means to establish worth and status when you don't otherwise have sh*t to your name...hence ebro questioning riff raffs background and why that's relevant to whether he's mocking black culture or genuinely adopting it (honestly, riff raff dodging those questions is sorta suspect)

if ebro's take was the case, then riff raff pretty much amounts to modern day blackface, with tats taking the place of facepaint....that's definately something worth thinking about, instead of just dismissing it as "playing the race card" or hating...especially when you look at the sea of white hipsters that make up the audience at riff raff concerts

personally, having wasted too much time of my life going thru riff raff vids...I'm leaning towards his persona not being an act. He might end up coming from an all white neighbourhood with a middle class upbringing, but in that case I think he probably just started out as a average white wigger with a lack of self awareness instead of a hipster "ironically" doing things he actually finds ridiculous

or he could just be an eccentric white dude raised in the hood

this guy gets it...

and even though Ebro is kind of a drama queen for other reasons, on this matter he was 100% correct in tryin to vet this man Rif Raff...

I have long suspected that muthafu*ka of tryin to pull some ol' Juaquin Phoenix type experiment sh*t..
