Lizzo argues contemporary genre segregation is 'inherently' racist

While speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the About Damn Time singer explained that genres such as R&B were created to keep Black artists out of the mainstream pop genre. "Genre's racist inherently," Lizzo argued. "I think if people did any research they would see that there was race music and then there was pop music” Lizzo / Entertainment Weekly. “And race music was their way of segregating Black artists from being mainstream because they didn't want their kids listening to music created by Black and brown people because they said it was demonic and yada, yada, yada."
