The 2019 politically correct Grammys

With their exposed artificially inflated breasts aglow during Sunday's Grammy presentation (and that's just those who identify as women; Adam Levine wannabes were nowhere to be seen or heard), the host, presenters, and performers were an inclusive politically correct group.

The Recording Academy has announced a sweeping inclusion initiative focused on correcting gender inequity in the music industry.

It's the first public display from the association, which administers the Grammy Awards, on an issue that was stirred up last year when academy President Neil Portnow said women in the music business needed to "step up" to succeed.  His comments followed a 2018 study from USC's Annenberg Inclusion Initiative.  According to the Recording Academy, the USC study found that across popular music only 2% of music producers and 3% of engineers or mixers are women.

So inclusive that a noted non-musician with most of the politically correct checked boxes participated in the opening  of the televised portion of the show.  Black?  Check.  Female?  Check.  Politically correct?  Check and double-check.  Yes, there was Michelle Obama, wife of former president Barack Hussein Obama (D), justifying her appearance — she likes music.  Attired in glittery flowing pants and top, standing side by side with such diverse females as white ethnic Italian Lady Gaga, Hispanic Jennifer Lopez, black Jada Pinkett Smith, and black host Alicia Keys, Obama gushed:

From the Motown records I wore out on the South Side to the 'Who Run the World?' song that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story.  Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys.  It allows us to hear one another, to invite each other in.  Music shows us that all of it matters, every story within every voice, every note within every song.  Is that right, ladies?


Screen grab from E! News gushed right back at her.

Okay, Michelle, if you say so.  The inclusive audience, which was at least 99.9% left-leaning and in the upper 1% income bracket — their definition of diversity and inclusion — roared their approval for several minutes.  

Eventually, the ceremony continued, admittedly some of it good, some eh and some huh?  But then that's inclusive, free-market me.

Hours later, the official ceremony over, and after more and more and even more parties, the stars returned to their elaborate, well guarded, walled homes.  Because walls keep out the diverse undesirables.  

More diverse, inclusive music is sure to follow.
