So what if he’s white?
Twilight” sweeps MTV Awards
Sweeping high above the studio on a harness, Cohen hit an obstacle, spun down toward the audience and landed face down in the lap of Eminem, exposing his naked bottom to both the white rapper and to millions of viewers watching the awards show live on television.
I was reading the story in curiosity of what happened at the annual debacle of the MTV Movie Awards and something quite curious popped up at me.
Why was the fact that Eminem is racially white an important part of this story? Would the story have been different, or reported differently, if Eminem were of a different race?
His race was not relevant to the story and should not have been mentioned: GBU Editor
