The entertainment industry apparently needs a huge makeover.
If you look at Hollywood, many longtime colleagues are now turning on each other over all the sexual assault accusations.
But apparently they also have a huge racism problem as well, because the Grammy’s just made a huge virtue-signaling move.
Remember a couple of years ago when not one black actor was nominated for an Academy Award in a leading role?
Will Smith was the one pointed to as being the most snubbed over for his role in ‘Concussion’. But to be fair, the movie and his performance were mediocre.
Of course it then became a massive boycott and spawned the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite, with people protesting off the red carpet on Hollywood Boulevard.
The following year, the Academy Awards clearly wanted to rectify their mistake and gave several acting nominations to minorities, as well as Best Picture nods to Moonlight and Hidden Figures – and in every case each nomination was rightfully well-deserved.
The #OscarsSoWhite year was probably just bad timing. In fact, no one had even considered it “racist” until the anti-white pointed it out.
But now the Grammy Awards just did the same thing, and the anti-white racists are rejoicing.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Internet warriors, pop music critics, and jilted coastal elites are dancing in the streets today because the Recording Academy is officially woke.
Grammy nominations were released today and the internet waited eagerly, ready to tear apart the Academy for giving white males any sort of recognition.
Except that’s not what happened. In fact, not a single white male was nominated for the prestigious Album Of The Year award.

The LA Times was one of the first to emphasize the race divide. In a long article, “Grammy Nods For Women, People Of Color An Encouraging Sign The Recording Academy Is Paying Attention,” white pop music critic Mikael Wood hails the Academy’s progressivism. He details past injustices, like when the Grammys prioritized talent and popularity, instead of color or gender.
From Frank Sinatra in the 1960s to Paul Simon in the 1970s to U2 in the 1980s, ’90s and early 2000s, one set of musicians has long had reason to feel secure in its privileged position at the Grammy Awards. Well, roll over, white guys, and tell Beethoven the news.
He drones on, giving the most predictable monologue about oppressed groups finally rising up to take what’s rightfully theirs.
Except he doesn’t concede that these nominations are rightfully theirs. Not in the traditional sense, at least.
“[the nominations] constitute an encouraging sign that academy members are actually paying attention to the culture, recognizing the music that had the most to say,”
Herein lies the issue. The Grammys aren’t supposed to recognize people that “have the most to say.” They’re supposed to judge music based on popularity and talent.”

Vanity Fair noted:
If Jay-Z won Album of the Year, he’d make Grammys history

What’s aggravating is that, once again, it has to be brought to everybody’s attention.
There probably wasn’t a single white person who even noticed—or even thought to notice—until it was pointed out multiple times by anti-white racists.
Taylor Swift wasn’t nominated for Album of the Year and most white people are completely indifferent about it.
