Many white Grammy Awards viewers took great umbrage Kendrick Lamar’s explosive, politically-charged, show-stopping performance Monday night.
In short, they were irate.
The Compton, Calif.-born rapper blew white people’s wigs back when he came out like a force of nature with the powerful cuts, “Alright” and “The Blacker The Berry”, from his album To Pimp a Butterfly.
The in-your-face, bodacious imagery of slavery, civil rights and Africa were all evoked in the emotionally-sizzling performance — and was not a digestible nor acceptable form of artistry for many Caucasians. They let their feelings be known on social media, and they were not nice.

Kendrick Lamar just had the most racist performance I’ve ever seen. #Grammys2016
