There's a LOT of stuff about Kanye I didn't know that paints him in a better, or at least less of a "he's a douchebag for the sake of being a douchebag", light.
I suspect a lot of folks will stop reading at "white mediocrity vs black excellence", but I strongly urge you to read about some of the examples there. This is something I've always sort of been aware of, though I've never seen that term. Black artists and performers definitely have a harder time than white ones.
As far as Kanye goes, well... the truth is, as always, is probably somewhere in the middle.
I think, though, that what this incident highlights is less that than the utter stupidity of award shows. Judging widely disparate acts on who knows what criteria? How can you even pretend to be an objective judge of Beck vs. Beyonce?
Because you know they totally have.
If this were really about transparency the information would simply all be publicly available. That it's coming out in a strange, antagonistic half-measure is purely a political tool and a complete corruption of the mindset their political spin will put on things.
Presumably, judging by the publishers exhibited goodness and morality: anything goes, modding community!

I also find it wonderfully uplifting that of the 5.1 million possible viewers, the network only attracted on average 8000.
The music industry is one of the worst offenders when it comes to rampant, self-centered capitalism. And while I like a lot of rap, I hold no illusions about the fact that mainstream rap is the epitome of that mindset.
