This year’s Grammy was especially special to the black community. How else can a community of creative minds that transformed a conceptualized work of art into a genre, that has also broken racial and economical barriers, be celebrated? Honor them with an award from a historically racist organization that has systemically used black genres to celebrate white success!

Too harsh?

Ok, allow me to rephrase. How humble are these aforementioned pioneers to accept the fate of an unsung artist and still take the time to say “Thank You” to their fans?

I love hip-hop.

This song really helped me cope with the frustration I feel every year when I see artist passed over time and time again for awards that winners pay homage to them for paving the path.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ?!?!?! SERIOUSLY?!?!

It looks like Jim Crow found another way to get under my skin! (or bleach it.)
