How in this modern age are we still having these devices awards like Black magic and MOBO awards, this doesn’t promote tolerance or diversity in the slightest.
it only serves to divides us further, and continually emphasize the difference in color among us.
why cant we just have awards to celebrate achieving human beings! rather than continually using devices awards and language.
a role model can be of any colour, so long as you focus on the achievement not the colour of there skin.

Your ignorant comments are quite sad and demonstrate that you are a part of the problem.This event is needed to celebrate the people that work hard but go unnoticed and are marginalised because of their race or gender.

Why are you so annoyed at the positivity that this message sends?

If it was something negative associated with the word black (which the mainstream media shoves in our faces on a daily basis) then you would probably be smiling from ear to ear, right?

Do you show the same concern for Bollywood or any others that want to support their own? Just from your comment I can tell you have no clue about the real issues that people face on a daily basis.

Why even come on this website if you do not have anything that adds value to the topic or discussion.

You also sound a bit mad that you were left out boo
