This Is Not Wakanda, Says White Reporter of Anthony Mackie and Monica Attendance at CMT Awards
The CMT Awards, which air yearly on the CMT Channel in Nashville, Tennessee, feature fan-voted country music videos and live performances, among other things.
The CMT Awards have begun accepting Black singers as part of an effort to broaden its appeal to people of all ethnicities.
Jimmie Allen and R&B singer Monica were among the performers who appeared on the show this year, which was co-hosted by actor Anthony Mackie.
Last week, a white reporter, Patrick Howley, expressed dissatisfaction with Black performers who performed at the awards presentation.
“Present were a disproportionate number of Black folks there,” Howley remarked. It’s a shame to say it,
but there are so many Black superstars who have nothing to do with country music, and it makes you wonder, “Why?”
He also slammed Mackie for presenting the CMT Awards on Monday, which were broadcast live.
“I’m not familiar with this Black guy who’s hosting the show. Country music is meant to be playing. Please accept my apologies.
I mean, you’ve got hip-hop and basketball, you know… “Fly with your flock, bro,” you should say.
When Howley played a clip of Mackie hosting the CMT Awards, he faked a Black accent in order to humiliate the actor, saying, “The melanated people developed country music!”

It was in Wakanda that we were creating country music before Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard came along and stole the Black man’s country music!
As a result of the negative response to his statements on Twitter, Howley claims that he is not a racist because he listens to Black music.
“I don’t mean any disrespect to the funky brothers,” he added. “Earth Wind and Fire, Run DMC, and other artists are among my favorites.
Country music, on the other hand, is different… “This isn’t the Kingdom of Wakanda.”
