Blind Item #3

This cable outlet has specific criteria to meet before it will give you its version of an icon award. One of those is, if you are a person of color, you are starting out with 85 strikes against you and internally they say there are only two people of color they would even give an icon award to right now and about 100 white people. So, yeah, basically it is like winning any kind of award at People if you are a person of color.

ESPN?

Or MTV?

Cail Corishev said...

So basically the exact opposite of ESPN. I'm gonna guess The Golf Channel, because they don't have many great golfers of color to choose from.

Neil said...

Sorry, Cail, but this is NOT the Golf Channel. They are all about Tiger Woods.

MTV? Won’t give Missy Elliott the Vanguard award.

+1 MTV

Kanye West Beyoncé and Rihanna have won the MTV video vanguard awards within the last couple of years. So I don’t think it’s them

Cail Corishev said...

@Neil, heh, I know, they want Tiger back on the leaderboards so bad you can feel the pain through the screen. That was tongue-in-cheek. If you read the blind literally, it says there are one or two they would give an icon award to. After Tiger and Vijay, who else? They'd love to have more, though, so it's not them.

CMT?

HeatherBee said...

I keep thinking Sundance channel but I’m sure that’s because of the film festival.

orangesoda said...

Probably MTV. Definitely not ESPN.

Remember, you can only have 4 black artistic properties max before seriously fucking with market share numbers.

The rest are disposable one-hit plantations that can quickly be put on a Shmurda prison bus (((when you don't feel like paying them.)))

Cail Corishev said...

If it's supposed to be MTV, someone will have to explain to me why a network that has profited for decades by promoting many black artists to a largely white audience would have a race-based policy against giving an award to those same artists. While I'd enjoy seeing them caught in that kind of hypocrisy, it really makes no sense.

C-SPAN, which confusingly is not a Spanish language channel.

Missed opportunity.

C-DAN3 will be all Geeljire all the time.

Ever wanted to hear Geeljire talk about books for an hour? No?
Too bad because all your favorite corporate and think tank hacks will be in jail or scrubbing toilets

All I know is Jim Kelly's speech for his award at the Espys had both my husband and I crying. Even Dan Marino was crying.

Aimless Spectator said...


It seems the vision for CDAN at this point is to troll the internet for maximum clickbait through maximum squabble.

Basically that's what making this site a near mirror of such places as Info Wars, Rense, and other conspiracy theory sites will do, and adding on top of that unsubstantiated racial bias rumors will do more of the same.

Oh well, it's not as if something of great value is being lost.

CMT was my first thought. I can really only think of three major POC in the country music world. Charley Pride, Darius Rucker, and Aaron Neville.

MTV's original policy was to not air any videos from people of color. They wanted to air Michael Jackson but he refused the request and told them they would need to change their policy. They agreed, the rest is history

CMT can only give Hootie so many accolades

Jade, That Girl said...

@T.W. David Bowie had a lot to do with that as well. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/music/posts/la-et-ms-david-bowie-mtv-interview-race-racism-transcript-20160112-story.html

The NASA channel?

I knew something was up when they only let white men go to the moon.
What a bunch of hateful bigots those nerds are.

90210 Under Fire said...

MTV? MTV, the "Decoded: White People" Network? MTV, the "New Year's Resolutions for White Guys" network? That MTV?

Get the hell outta here.

And to the two retards a couple comments above, mmm, no, I think you're thinking of Black Entertainment Television -- otherwise known as BET -- the pre-MTV channel whose policy it was not to air videos from white artists.

Geeljire said...

Have you ever sold a beach house to Bob Johnson because you knew a hurricane was coming?

T. W. said...

@90210 Under Fire

Definitely MTV.

Can you name a black artist who appeared on MTV before Michael Jackson did?

You can't because not only was he the first he was also the only black artist MTV would show for a while.

I saw a documentary about music on PBS. There was a considerable amount of time on the topic.



BET started as a block of programming in 1980 and became a network in 1983. It is now owned by Viacom.

I grew up during the 1980's. You still call people retarded so I guess you grew up during the 1800s. If you want to start an argument with people who really don't care if a blind item guess is correct at least get your facts correct.
