Now, I am not a big fan of either Adele or Beyonce. Both talented ladies, but neither of them particularly appeals to me. So, I offer no opinion as to which of them "deserved" the Grammy for Best Album.

What I'm baffled by is the widespread assertion that the Grammies are too white. Over the past 40+ years, I can think of LOADS of albums by minority artists that have won the Best Album Grammy. Stevie Wonder (a bunch, all by himself), Michael Jackson, OutKast, Lauryn Hill, Natalie Cole, Quincy Jones, Carlos Santana, Whitney Houston, Ray Charles...

Is there really a valid argument to be made that black artists are underrepresented among the winners?
