And there was silly old me thinking that music awards were made on the basis of performance and composition attributes, not colour of skin or ethnic origin. Well, you live and learn.
Don't they have Black only award shows in Britain like in America?
Whites will never, in history been allowed such a thing.
Whites have been abolished. We're not allowed anything of our own because of you ****ing immigrants I wish you would all die.
There is an issue here though... undoubtedly. Whether you like either genre or not, Grime and UK Rap have made leaps and bounds over the last year. With the majority of these artists being black, they have been making great music that loads of people have got behind and enjoyed. There is simply no recognition of this... why? You could say this is because the majority of them are independent, therefore serve no head of label/industry heads etc. to get their ego massaged etc. etc. but that's a whole other conspiracy.
It doesn't even come down to tokening in black artists... there has generally been amazing music made by black artists and yet no nominations. These awards should be representative of all popular music in this country at the present time.
I am huge fan of black music but Black british music is horrendous. its nothing but ****ing cheesy RnB and cringe worthy grime.
