    Sure, we can have NAACP Awards, but if we were to have awards for just whites it would be racist. The world we live in..

  • kelli

    Halle nominated for an image award? They have obviously run out of people to nominate!

  • tricia

    Oh shutup.

    Were whites enslaved for 400 plus years.

    It’s an old tradition.

    And all white awards is called the Oscars!

  • Tami

    Please stop with that becuse the NAACP does have some white nominees too and Spanish.Look at the full list and stop being ignorant!

  • lia


    Yes, that is right, some blacks were enslaved for 400 years plus, but that was YEARS AGO. No one owes anyone ANYTHING and you act like other races do. Marisa’s right, it’s unfair.

  • lmao

    pic 4. lady to 50 : Chelsea handler? really?
    50: uhhh

  • sillyme

    I’m sure Will and Jada paid handsomely to have their daughter win awards in every category she’s in.

    I don’t have a problem with BET having an awards ceremony for black entertainment. Only problem is, the quality is just not there in terms of movies and TV shows, so some of the nominations make you go what??? I mean, 19 awards for Why Did I Get Married Too? That movie was absolute crap and doesn’t even compare to the movies nominated for the major movie awards. It’s kind of sad that that might be considered the best “black” film of 2010.

    Oh my God! Look at the nominees. :S

  • ppl should learn world history

    Despite the politically correct stuff we are taught in school, slavery has existed since the dawn of time. Blacks enslaved each others for centuries way before whites, Arabs enslaved them as well, in many places in Africa (and other continents) selling human beings still occurs as we speak. However for some reason all the world seems to remember is slavery perpetrated by the Whites/Americans only. As people forget Moorish colonization, territorial genocides amongt Native Americans, ethnic cleansing among Africans, the Japanese against the Chinese, the Chinese against their neighbors, etc. Let’s just perpetually blame the Whites and avoid upsetting other peoples at all costs.
    Anyways, to consider NAACP some sort of repair for what African Americans endured is just absurd. I know we haven’t acheived real equality yet but all these sorts of communitarianist claims/events only slow things and make them worse in my opinion.

    its called the oscars

  • yvette

    When are we going to stop dividing ourselves by race. Enough with the channels or mags or shows only for one race, in this case black. If you want to get over things and get rid of racial division, then start with yourself. And whites were enslaved too genius.

  • jackbooty

    willow smith? thats the best they got? embarrassing, just saying.

  • T Pain

    Even i think these awards are BS!~~

  • hank

    Halle Berry overrated and can’t act, now that is embarrassing.

  • candy

    Sorry but if she shows up for this award, than they tell them already before the show is filmed they won. so if i see her there fake show.

  • Mejay

    I second #10, and non blacks are also nominated.

  • welll..obviously

    Wow… Some whites are really stupid.

  • pukeonu

    how come we don’t have white people only awards? Blacks are the biggest racists ya’’s proof.


    @there is a white award show…ITS CALLED THE OSCARS


    @marisa: @pukeonu: there are white only award shows..its called THE OSCARS

  • lane


    you’re an idiot, Halle Berry has won an Oscar , Gaberay (sp?) was up for an Oscar for precious last year, etc. We don’t deem the oscars as something with an only “white” name. god you’re an idiot.

  • Jokergurl

    Isn’t Willow Smith a little young to be on this list? I’m glad to see Bruno Mars on this list as well as Tyler Perry, Denzel Washington and Mary J. Blige.

  • lil k

    well we would not had to come up with our own award show if we were included and recanized at the golden globes, oscars, and many other shows were you can spot all the blacks, or any other race at that. how many asians were there, or hispanics, or any other race besides whites. and the movies the win for suck always.

  • BeyStan

    Congrats to Beyonce as always! She sang Halo at the last one and rocked of course. And every award show is white with a few people of colored sprinkled about just to meet the standards.
