It was racist... Jennifer Hudson sang first, then Alicia Keys, and finally Beyonce. Where were the white folk?

Before anyone flames me I am just kidding!

Philly B is correct to "digest" this one.

The lady makes some points but derives them from a left field perspective. If she were not worried about white mens erections, but every mans erection, then she could be take a bit more serious as someone looking out for women in general.

Would have like her to have said that Beyonce had enough talent from singing and performing that she could have carried the show without sexualizing it. None of these things however were in her reasoning.

She also needs to know that Hollywood and the recording industry and sales of music are a two edged sword in that, if Beyonce did not also appeal to whites, demographics would predict that she would have never made the half time show to start with.

Just for the record folks...NEVER think or assume people like the author speak for all persons for color. Not saying anyone is, but that almost pisses me off just as much as the articles themselves at times.

On subject, its entertainment. I'll never understand why we can't all just have an opinion, and move on. Either you like it or you don't and thats it. Personally, I enjoy her work, and I find her sexy.

I've known way too many people of variant backgrounds and ideas to believe in "groupthink" for just about any race, ethnicity, culture, religion, etc.

People who claim to speak for a certain group always make me wary.
