Is X Factor Racist?
The mother of X Factor contestant Leona Lewis has hit out at the ITV show saying that her daughter will never win because she is black.
Marie told New magazine: “It’s her dream to win but I think the public will vote for Ben – racism does play a part in the public vote. How else can you explain Dionne going out so soon? 4sure have gone and Robert has been in the bottom two a few times, yet there were other acts that were not as talented but still getting voted for.”
A spokesman for the ‘X Factor’ has refused to comment on Marie’s claims of racism.
