No white men nominated for ‘Album of the Year’ Grammy for first time in 20 years

For the first time in almost 20 years, the Grammys have not nominated any white men in the Album of the Year category.

The nominees for that category include Childish Gambino, Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars and Lorde, meaning all of the nominees are women or people of color.

What’s more, all of the artists in the Record of the Year are people of color, with the exception of Justin Bieber, who collaborated with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee on “Despacito.”

There are some caveats to the lack of any white men in the Album of the Year category, seeing as album co-producer Jack Antonoff could also win if Lorde does, or if Childish Gambino wins, Swedish composer and producer Ludwig Göransson does too.

 

But for the performers themselves, this is the first time that there have been no white men nominated. In 1999, Lauryn Hill won Album of the Year for The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill over Garbage, Madonna, Shania Twain, and Sheryl Crow. The group Garbage, fronted by Shirley Manson, did have white men in its ranks, however.

Despite the caveats, this is a big deal for the Grammys, which have long been criticized for lagging behind the country in the diversity department. Hopefully, the trend of diversifying will continue.

THE AFRICANS AND ARABS AND CORCASIANS WERE IN IT TOGETHER TO GET RICH FROM SELLING THE NEGROS ANDTHE REST OF THE TRIBES IN SLAVERY TO GET RICH READ THE 83RD PSAMS AND PLEASE READ JOEL THE 3RD CHAPTER AND THEN READ DEUTERONOMY THE WHOE 28TH CHAPTER. GOD GAVE US LAWS BECAUSE LAWS CAUSE PEOPLE TO BE CIVILIZED PSALMS 78 VRS 5. BUT MAN BEING EVIL AND CORRUPT, GOT YOU USING THE BOOK OF TRUE WORLD HISTORY AND LAWS. GOT YOU USING THE BOOK THE BIBLE AS A RELIGIOUS BOOK IN CHURCH, it’s a fact hide something under somebody’s nose and they will never find it and that’s exactly what went down!!!

*CORCASIANS = Cave Dwellers, where did they come from before they were in the caves, the came from negros as a race of Albinos and Negros chased them up into the caves because they had no melanin! read Genesis The 25Th chapter from the 21st VRS on down Corcasians were known as Easau or Edomites which means Red people while Isaac and Rebecca are negros who had Esau and Jacob, Isaiah 29:22 proves jacob is black, so if Jacob is black then what color would his Mother and Father be but black!!! Genesis the 49th chapter Jacob is the father of the 12 tribes of Israel. Romans 9:13 GOD HATES Esau!!! Read The 83rd psalms Esau and the Africans and the other nations Hate GOD AND Hate his children the negros and other tribes of Israel, read it it’s all there in your bible but watch out for counterfeit bibles you want King James Bible dated 1611 which is the direct translation OF THE HEBREW SCROLLS, King James is black who did the translation from Hebrew to Greek to English why do you think they nick named Lebron JAMES from the NBA King James, it’s not a coincidence, Corcasians know King James is black. Bless you All for paying attention it may well be that GOD will bless you to see and understand the truth, Also there were and still is Black Negro Greeks, you might already know two famous ones such as Aristotle And Plato who are not white but Corcasians are covering up the truth but not for much longer GOD is working to bring it out and GOD don’t and won’t fail to do so!!!

Israel Europe and the rest of the world is yours and taken from you when conquered by Circassians who came out from the caucuses Mountains in Europe, you know them as caveman. All this information is also found in biblical references book of job but how will you know if your in church using a book of true facts for religion and being guided to do so by mans treachery and deceit. Besides if you call yourself African your saying that a white man by the name of Leos SKipios Africanos is your father, not to disrespect you but to Educated people you look foolish and it’s a fact that you are lost and don’t know who you are. How can you claim your land back and your riches back if you don’t know who you are? Your the lost tribes of Israel not the tribes of Africa, you ruled Egypt as the Hiksos and shepherd Kings and then the Egyptians was in fear of you, overthrew you and put you in Slavery you are the Hebrews, that’s why Song Artist Michael Jackson before he died he made a video with Eddie Murphy the song was entitled Remember The Time! Mike was sending you subliminal messages but I guess you missed what he was trying to show you. He showed you black people was ruling (Egyptians) and Black Hebrews was the slaves, what do you think the story of Moses was about? You! Yes you!!! Moses and his people were not white even Krs one told you that in a rap song. Israel is The Mother Land, not Africa, The Circassians control England and America from Israel, mess with Israel and watch America and its Mother England come after you. The Hebrews Are The Rightful Rulers of The Earth The Entire Earth so much for Africa.

Describing us by color is it stupidly or acceptable racism by our own people, I know a lot of you will disagree but we are called negro to hide the fact that we are the original Hebrews and saying that we are Africans is just as foolish as calling Japanese people chinese, just because they look like chinese, does not mean they are chinese, besides there are no Africans in history that has ever been classified as negros, The Africans are the historical enemies of the Hebrews and are responsible for selling Hebrews into slavery when the Hebrews were looking for refuge after fleeing out of Palestine Israel in 70 A.D. do your research I dare you, you can start with a book called (From Babylon To Tim Buktu
