Bridging The Gap: How Logic Uses His Identity To Embarrass Both Races
We’re living in divisive times here in America, so it’s always heartwarming to see our heroes step up to become shining beacons of unity. Perhaps nobody has done this better than Maryland rapper Logic, whose biracial identity allows him to create common ground by completely embarrassing both races.
“The incredible thing about Logic is just how adept he is at breaking down racial barriers” said Dr. Shauna Winslow, sociology professor at the University of Chicago. “Whether he’s touring alongside G-Eazy, or sincerely naming a song ‘Flexicution’—people of all creeds, cultures, and colors can come together to cringe.”
Truly inspiring! Thanks to Logic, both blacks and whites can wince at lines like “everybody looking for the meaning of life through a cell phone screen” and “I just beat Uncharted 4, lit.”
To study the unifying effects of Logic’s music, Dr. Winslow’s team of researchers conducted a range of sociological experiments, each of them sharing Logic’s work with racially diverse groups. “The results were immediate,” Winslow described. “All participants’ embarrassment levels were off the charts, spiking when they watched the seventh Logic music video where he solves a Rubik’s Cube. The room was a whole lot closer once we turned the music off.”
And despite their disparate ethnicities, nearly every participant agreed that they found Logic’s self-proclaimed love of philosophy “deeply humiliating," with several coming together to agree that ‘he looks like if an Only God Can Judge Me tattoo was a person’.”
Amazing! Our hats are off to you Logic—keep knocking down walls and building bridges the way only you can!
