In all of MY years the Grammy's have never been about the best music. I never watch them, NEVER, why do you?

catmandoo1 02-11-2019 06:01 AM

Absolute shit!!!!! We are circling the drain.

JCC123 02-11-2019 06:02 AM

That is the voice of an angel. I can’t even make eye contact with him right now. His voice is like a combination of Fergie and Jesus. For a minute i thought i saw him floating above himself looking down.

Who knew James Hardin could dance?

Who the hell watches any of these stupid award shows? If you do turn in that man card, if you even have one.

Lyrics check all the boxes of their "culture", looks like a winner....

captbone 02-11-2019 06:59 AM

It is all propaganda.

A very large portion of this country is easily influence and believe what the media tells them.

The message these propaganda outlets have been pushing for years is that "America is unfair, racist and needs to be fixed".

The so-called "media" is the biggest threat to our nation currently.

Tainui 02-11-2019 07:00 AM

For a portion of the population thatís probably pretty accurate. I doubt that demographic is well represented on a boating forum so the responses are as expected.

I agree that for a portion of the population that is pretty accurate song, the problem is that it does not make it reality, fact or anywhere close to civilized.

I would theorize that a boating forum is comprised of successful, intelligent, hard working people who pay an extremely large portion of taxes. Like many people here, I built everything that I have without help and overcame issues. I didnt blame other people or America.

Now my pristine little 11 year old granddaughter will watch this " Song of the Year " . ..... We are turning over our country just as fast as we can give it to em .

wdlfbio 02-11-2019 08:08 AM

Oh yeah, the Grammies was last night. Darn. I missed it, again...

RussH 02-11-2019 08:16 AM

That took a lot of intelligence to write! :roll

alligatorgar 02-11-2019 10:47 AM

This is part of diversity, inclusion and integration of people and culture. The old way of thinking is dying on the vine, withering into boating forum innuendos and whispers of anonymous threats . Tolerance and acceptance are working it’s way into our society. Look as far as your tv, radio, school, go to a wedding, listen to the music, watch the dance moves, your Uber driver/taxi driver, police, fireman, nurse. Growing pains? Sure enough but change is inevitable. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. One could only imagine what action invoked such a song to be written, what action perpetrated to elicit such strong emotion, visual violence..... The artist will be explaining his message for weeks to come, to those that would listen. Why this song/album was picked over any others? Who knows, a message to the masses maybe? I would give it a R rating at the least.
