"...Few white people are worried that they have not been considered for:
*NAACP Image Award
But allow me to disagree; -Any civil rights activist (regardless of color) would be proud to receive an NAACP Image award.
-Robin Thicke and Eminem would love to get a BET Award.
-I have no idea what the Trumpet Awards were (even though I watched most of the telecast).
If these award shows were set up to honor the best Blacks in any given field - fine. But limiting the field to just Blacks usually cuts down on the quality of the competition (Kind of like having the Negro Leagues haven been the de facto MLB and excluding Ruth.) . Doing to others what has been done to you is no justification for a racist practice. I thought these shows were set up to honor the best in any field - but given from a Black perspective. Really, if only Blacks were nominated for Oscars - how many quality Black movies are there?
