    PaganLyle, I think you missed the subject of the article - it is regarding the Black Internationl Film Festival so it was all about black artists and awards for black artists rightly so, more info on the website biffestival.co.uk

    Congratulations.
    However, I am not convinced there should be awards dedicated to 'black' artists. I just think that as long as skin colour is mentioned as a factor, then it is a form of segregation. Besides, if there was an award ceremony dedicated to 'white' artists, there would be uproar and calls of racism. Perhaps I am being a bit cynical, unintentionally.
    Sorry, but I don't believe ethnicity should be a factor in anything. Whether it is job applications, award categories or whatever.
    I look forward to a time when skin tone is not an issue and everyone is judged solely on their merits.
    But, as I say.... well done Chucky. Those were some big names he was up against.
    Does anyone know if these awards are only for 'black' artists, or for other ethnic groups too.... for example, the Masoods?
