Virgin on Racism?

National UK station Virgin Radio has been accused of racism. Following a recent decision to omit manufactured pop bands from their playlist, Virgin have added the R’n’B and rap genres to the ‘banned’ list of ‘processed crap’. According to the station’s website, Virgin’s boss “has [also] had enough of ‘any R’n’B or rap act'”.
The station’s policy has been condemned as ‘verging on racism’ by industry insiders. R ‘n’ B and Rap music is made by predominently black artists. Virgin Radio claim that it is all just a bit of fun.
