Please. Next you're going to accuse me of claiming Jacques Chirac is a
Stalinist. (The educated Iraqis I know have many other adjectives for
him, but Stalinist is not one of them.)
MTV people have their own weird ideology and perception of the world
that I don't feel like outlining on this list. I will say, though,
that for many years it has bothered me that MTV tends to treat people
of darker-skinned races more like mascots than like full human beings,
provided they are not stars.
