makes sense. The music industry is so diverse, so many artists. Love this! Hopefully this will encourage more music :)

Nobody watch these kind of show anymore. Way too much political views

Why not just have more award categories, expand each category to include "Best by "

It might take a "Grammy Month" to dish out all the awards, but everyone deserves an award for participating!

The Recording Academy announced that the rider will be added to its agreement with producers staging the 64th annual awards as a way to ensure equity and inclusion at all levels of production.

In other words, the best artists will not necessarily be the winners.

The rider requires Grammys producers to audition, interview, and hire onstage and offstage people who have been historically and systematically excluded from the industry.

Over the past two decades, what people have been historically and systematically excluded from the music industry? Folk singers?

The Grammy Awards version of diversity…

” We are going to hire liberals…and some other liberals…and we will finally include some more liberals.”

Forced diversity = socially accepted racism/sexism. You can't be more inclusive by explicitly excluding people based on race or gender. Unfortunately, the cognitive dissonance is something these SJW types will never be able to reconcile.

The Grammys has gone the way of the Oscars, down the clockwise swirling vortex (in the Northern hemisphere). Notice the plummeting viewership.

What they actually mean is: 'We believe all white people are racist therefore we will not hire them'

Lol ok. Employing people who are not white is racism against white people.

If they award the Super Tami Nadu music or movies, then diversity is very much understandable, otherwise it's all black and white, rarely yellow but never ever the brown.

About time. If there’s one thing I never tire of hearing, it’s greater representation, inclusivity, and diversity.

Too subtle?

Seen this show while living in the USA.

Very political. Woke. Mainly Black and White representation, fighting among themselves for more seats. While Latino and Asian non existent. All about the black and white.

Basing decisions on race is by definition racism, so yes.
