Eminem's relationship with White America has seemingly done great things for his reputation and sales.

But things weren't always so rosy between Shady and the Caucasians. Ice-T, rap's Pepperidge Farms, remembers white fans booing Em during the 1999 Warped Tour because of the color of his skin.

"I met Em when he was on Warped Tour and the white kids were booing him," Ice explained in an interview with HotNewHipHop. "The white kids were throwing sh*t at him. That’s when they used to use the term "wigger." They didn’t like him because it was a punk rock tour. Now I was out there rapping, they didn’t have a problem with me, or with Black Eyed Peas before Franny. But when he got up there they felt it was ok to be disrespectful. And I watched him weather that storm."

What do you think about Ice-T's perspective on Eminem?
