After his daughter, Beyonce, walked away from the Golden Globes without an award, Matthew Knowles expressed his disgust with a somewhat familiar sounding rant.
Knowles told reporters back stage at the Beverly Hills Hilton right after the Golden Globes show ended that his daughter was outcasted and overlooked by a bureaucratic good old boy system that is still alive in 2007 as it was in 1967. “Today is MLK’s birthday and it saddens me to say that things have not changed for blacks. Working class blacks and blacks in Hollywood are still being discriminated against. We still have a long way to go,” he said.”
It would suck spending half your life shoving your favorite daughter down everyone’s throat only to find out they don’t like her as much as you do. Blaming white America for it is pretty much the only way to go in this situation. Well, it’s either that or punching your daughter in the nose for not being good enough. Clearly, that’s Papa Joe Simpson’s modus operandi and look how well it’s worked for him.
