Justin Bieber Transcends Race

Hmmm... maybe Justin Bieber is right for Kim Kardashian after all.

Consider: The young artist has been nominated for a Black Entertainment Television Award. Does anyone else see something wrong with that statement?

Bieber earned a nod in the Best New Artist category, joining Nicki Minaj, B.o.B., Young Money and Melanie Fiona. There's something that separates Justin from those four. We just can't put our finger on it...

Quasi Black Musician

Stephen Hill, BET's President of Music Programming and Specials, said of the nomination:

"Bieber has crossed the color boundaries the same way that hip-hop has crossed the boundaries the other way for a number of years. He's had rhythm in his music. He makes the type of music our audience likes."

Yes, Mr. Hill just compared Justin Bieber to just transformative artists as Diddy and Snoop Dogg. We can't sit by and let this comparison stand! We mean, come on!

Those artists did NOT have Justin's hair.
