Macklemore Finally Performed ‘White Privilege II’ Live, Delighting Comments Sections Around the Land

After Macklemore dropped “White Privilege II” last month, two questions swirled above all. The first: What is a good white person actually supposed to do? The second, slightly less important: Is Macklemore ever even going to try to perform this track live? Last night on Late Show With Stephen Colbert, we got our answer, as the Mack returned to perform a slightly abridged version of the song alongside Ryan Lewis, Jamila Woods, Nikkita Oliver, and Danez Smith. Add this to his interview with DeRay Mckesson, and it’s clear Colbert is really going for that Most Woke Host in Late Night award.
