Yeah, let's celebrate the awards of some cranky white guy! The only revolution he started was taking the credit that african americans deserve.

you know he's already dead right? there's no reason to be mad still. african americans have done pretty good for themselves in the music industry in the 60 years since.

but yeah, he was racist because he made rock n' roll multi cultural...and what an asshole for selling more records than his black contemporaries in the 1950's...that was definitely all his fault.

Are you seriously going to blame Elvis for the cultural norms that made it difficult for African American artists to succeed? He started a revolution whether you want to accept it or not... we can argue over whether there were more deserving candidates for that success, but that doesn't change the fact that he's historically significant.
