Oh please. Why not just recognize the accomplishments of PEOPLE? This shit creates more rift and racism than anything else. And it is completely one sided. Have you ever seen a promo for the "White Music Awards"?

I've lived around all creeds, races, and types of people and my conclusion is that there are great people and assholes among all. The more we artificially (and yes it is artificial) recognize these achievements associated to a race or gender, the more we errode any progress that has been made.
