Every time you do a piece on music especially hip hop, you come across with this comments that are completely wrong or unfounded. First, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is in cleveland because of the Historical Context of Alan Freed being considered the first major DJ to play "rock and Roll". Second, "they only induct white people", is completely off base. The first inducting class in 1986 consisted of 10 different artist: Chuck Berry, James Brown, Sam Cooke, Fats Domino, The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, and Elvis, meaning 4/10 groups/artists inducted, contained white people. Three, the guests are admitting that they know nothing about the culture or the Bands being discussed. Is there any actual research done before you bring up these questions?

They made the R&R Hall of Fame in Cleveland because the white guy played it on the radio, not because the black guys actually played it.
