Ok a few Europanic winners are actually geniuses but the rest? Sigh…. usual multicultural garbage.

 My favorite? TyShawn Sorey, a “musical genius”, I’ve heard elephants play better piano than this turd:
This “piano playing” is utterly horrific and demonstrative of blacks perception that if they “just go through the motions and act kinda like what white people do” they will get money and awards. Sadly they are right.
People actually clapped after this banging fists on a instrument. Sick!
It reminds me of the black businessman who took out a 800,000 SBA loan and put on a suit and sat at a desk and waited for more money to come to him.
Placing these pieces of shits in the same vein as brilliant white engineers and scientists is the most disgusting piece of political agenda vomit that I’ve ever seen it is sick it is outrageous and it is horrific.
These people are no more geniuses than a stinking turd of poo I laid in the toilet.
