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.
Many people have also claimed that the shock eviction of Robert Allen only goes to prove that the British public do vote in a racist manner. Read more on that issue here.
