Following her Best Actress and Best Song losses at the Golden Globes, Beyonce's famously kind Father told a bunch of reporters that he thinks the awards are racist. Of course, his daughter did lose to two of the most legendary artists in their fields–Meryl Streep and Prince–but he wasn't having any of that "logic."
Knowles told reporters back stage at the Beverly Hills Hilton right after the Golden Globes show ended that his daughter was outcasted and overlooked by a bureaucratic good old boy system that is still alive in 2007 as it was in 1967. "Today is MLK's birthday and it saddens me to say that things have not changed for blacks. Working class blacks and blacks in Hollywood are still being discriminated against. We still have a long way to go," he said."
Hmmmm. Maybe his back was turned when Jennifer Hudson and Prince were winning their Golden Globes and holding them in their black hands. Then, maybe his daughter's retina-singeing, gold dress caught the spotlight and blinded him while Eddie Murphy and Forest Whitaker were winning their Golden Globes. Then maybe he forgot that his daughter isn't that great in her old age. Oh, and by the way, since when has Beyonce been "working class?"
Speaking as a black person, both Mathew and Beyonce Knowles embarrass me immensely. Both of them have egos that are way too big and they disgust me.
don't forget shonda rhimes. she's black and she won the gg for grey's anatomy
GO CORD!!!! Impressive slamming skills on the blog!!! Your alright kid! Beyounce has been getting on my nerves lately and her dad just put me off my meds! Complete and Utter Bullshit!
Well said, Cord!!
Not only is Beyonce not working class, she has no class.
Blame it on racism-yeah, that'll work. Are you going to use the same, tired excuse next year?
B. Knuckles' dad is confused. MLK worked for the rights of blacks, not black farm animals. Also, Papa K. still calls them "blacks".
Her ego is almost as big as her legs.
This (and her better-than-thou dress) is why I was so glad to see her lose and Jennifer Hudson win.
Aww, take it easy on Beyonce, she is lovely and talented.
Her dad, however, seems to fit the "pushy Hollywood parent" stereotype, who truly believes his daughter can do no wrong and should never lose.
That was a very good entry Cord!!
Well, I heard that in that quote he was referring to the Beverly Hills Hilton. She was waiting for service and the staff just ignored her and her situation. I read it yesterday over at crunk and disorderly. Just FYI.
I think this is pretty much a case of, yes he may have a point, but he really isn't the one who should be saying it. Let his daughter talk about race and Hollywood.
Please. All non-white races have a long way to go in Hollywood, but not at this year's GG ceremony. In fact, the only minority group who should be rightfully pissed at being under-represented are Asians, NOT African-Americans! Hell, even Latinos scored big with "Ugly Betty" at this year's GGs. Beyonce didn't win because *she's just not a very good actress.* Her GG nomination was something her handlers campaigned for because everyone knows she has no shot at an Oscar this year (Jennifer Hudson yes, Beyonce, no).
Beyonce IS working class.
She does all the work and Her DAD takes all the money!!!!
