4. Because his overt racism made everyone uncomfortable
That's why he's still the butt of innocent jokes. To lighten everyone up.

Truth.

14. I will
Kanye - black guy takes the mic out of a white country artist young womens hand to shamelessly promote a black womans hip hop artist. Blatent black racism. Embarressed the hell out of Beonce - she knew what was happening. It is what it is. Now, imma let you finish.

9. Overt racism?
You mean in the way Obama is racist to both black and white people because he has white and black ancestry, respectively?

10. I don't think it was the quality of her video that was the point.
Although I must admit I have never heard of either of these two people before the show I think it was the arrogance of a star who thinks the rules do not apply to him and the sheer rudeness of his behavior that was most despicable. I am not sure it had to do with racism however, he seems so self centered that he would have interrupted anyone he deemed undeserving because he is such a jerk.

12. Isn't she a country singer?
I'd say it's more an issue of musical classism than of racism.
