But, she's not white!
Yikes As outlandish as it is to compare stupid music awards to racial violence, I can kinda see where she's coming from... kinda. Artists like Eminem and Macklemore have talked about the privilege they have to be white artists in a predominately black genre.

Then yes, they sure are privileged. Eminem earned his fame and "privilege" through hard work and tolerating discrimination. I can't say the same for Macklemore because I don't listen to rap or know anything about him.
I thought the name was familiar. [quote]she expressed her outrage over the George Zimmerman verdict by calling God a gun-toting white racist chasing young black men.[/quote] She's a race baiter like Al Sharpton is, and both are in a position of authority in the sense that they have the power of information over people, and can sway opinions in favor of their own. Not to mention they love standing on the bodies of dead people to preach their message. But that's just my opinion too so take it as you will. Also, if you think race holds power on music you'd might want to reconsider. You make it sound like Black people couldn't play in a Metal band, or Asian guys can't do Western Country or Rap music, is it really a privilege? Music to me, is a language everyone can pretty much understand, don't segregate it for petty or trivial reasons.
