    I think the MOBOs are a farce. How can we expect people of black origin to be seemlessly integrated into society when there is a constant distinction being made between them and white people? If we had a MOWO awards there would be a scandal and the whole event would be racist.

    White people have won MOBO awards many times before. Its MUSIC of black origin not ARTISTS of black origin, you are confusing the two.

    I am white, if I create some music it originates from me - it is of white origin regardless of genre. MOBO's are a joke - they try and lay a single ethnic claim over music which often has multi-ethnic inputs.

    MOAO isn't as catchy as MOBO though!! I think that's why there isn't a MOWO. Oh no, it's because if it was specifically music of white origin that would be racist! :rolleyes:
