I am Black and would have voted for Adele over Beyonnce for best album… obviously this has nothing…

Hi Jim! Thanks for reading my post. Just because you’re black and would’ve voted for Adele over Beyoncé doesn’t mean that white fragility was not at play here. At the end of the day, this was a subjective decision. This article was meant to analyze factors that could’ve affected that subjective decision.

I am a huge Adele fan. I absolutely love Hello. As I mentioned before in a previous response, I believe that Adele should have won song of the year. I do not think however, believe she deserved album of the year.

So no I’m not “ just mad that Beyoncé didn’t win.”

It’s about messaging. It’s about context.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
