Follow-up to Alicia Keys

Thank you to everyone who emailed, blogged, and bitched about Aliciagate. I hope that we three temps were able to skew the survey results enough to bring Alicia back to the rodeo for an encore.

Just to clarify, I was at her concert myself and the arena was filled with enthusiastic (mostly black) concert-goers. So it's not like there is no audience for Alicia Keys or any black artist -- it's just that we were not the people who were surveyed (rodeo volunteers and season ticket holders were). The fact that many of the negative survey responses for Alicia were racially motivated made me feel justified in throwing the results.
