Did you watch the 2015 American Music Awards and wonder, “Where are all the black people?” Well, you were not alone in those thoughts because I was also left guessing if they were barred from entering the venue.
These were all the performers from last night’s show via Just Jared:
5 Seconds Of Summer
Walk the Moon
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Try to spot the black people in the lineup, if you can. There is no rush. I will give you a moment.
The answer is two – The Weeknd and Leon Bridges. That’s right, there were no rappers at the event except Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and The Weeknd was the only person close to R&B.
Country singers, however, dominated the lineup along with their counterparts in pop and rock. You know, because they really need another platform to showcase their music…as if they aren’t represented everywhere else…
