Except for the Ones Who Constantly Populate Their Programming

After losing in all five categories for which he was nominated, the always levelheaded Kanye West went into hysterics and accused MTV of racism: “‘That’s two years in a row, man,’ the tantrum-prone rapper fumed backstage. ‘Give a black man a chance.’” Judging by the above video list, taken from MTV.com, it looks as if there is clear evidence that the station gives black men – and women – “a chance,” unlike the Klan members at BET.

Kayne West = douche. I really HATE it when black entertainers feel they’ve been slighted and so pull the race card. See also: Matthew Knowles complaining that Beyonce didn’t get nominated for an Oscar for Dreamgirls because it is still the Sixties and ‘Hollywood blacks’ (that is the term he actually used. Gah!) are being discriminated against. It is all very galling especially when there is still racism in our world.
