    Congrats to them. But I don’t understand, it’s okay for an awards show to be exclusively for blacks alone? I thought segregation was over.

      I was just thinking same. Double standards! Blacks are the most racist people on the planet yet we keep shouting equality! Same reason I think the black-ish serie is dumb! Couldn’t watch more than one episode. Oscars nominated just white people, we are shouting our heads off but then we have TV stations and awards etc for just black people….*sigh*
