A new round of apologies from CBS, and this time no teats were bared. Was Outkast’s Grammys performance racist? I abhor the Grammys (because (i) the music generally emphasizes popularity, not quality or creativity; and (ii) the Hollywood aspect deeply annoys me), so I missed the broadcast. According to the CNN article, a Native American Cultural Center member called it “the most disgusting set of racial stereotypes aimed at American Indians that [he has] ever seen on TV.” Any opinions?
