How Come There Aren't Any Black Pop Stars?

How come? :oprah:

The closest we have to a black pop star is Rihanna (and Beyonce) and that's it. Why is it that most black people sing rap or R&B? White, Asian, and Hispanics sing all types of genres though, but black people don't seem interested in doing other genres...

 

Just a thought of mine. This topic isn't racist AT ALL. It's just a question I've been wondering for a while...

Segregation? I don't know, humans need their labels, for whatever reason.

I'm also talking about the way they sing they sing the same sort of way all the time. While other people experiment with their voice. (yes I know gonna get ALOT of backlash for this comment) :nails:

I'm talking about contemporary. The 80's doesn't count in this topic.

Black artists aren't interested in doing pop. R&B/rap/hip-hop is more interesting and has more substance. 

EDIT: People giving me "Excuse me no's".

Hip-hop is great right now. This one of the reasons. Don't be ignorant.
