There have been mummers that SA Idols on M-Net is very racist and focuses on white talent. Mara Louw has raised this issue in 2010 of racism on Idols and soon after that she was booted out. She said the competition is riddled with racism and that there will only be a black winner if M-Net were to sell the rights to the show to the SABC. "Blacks don't have access to DStv, so a large portion of South Africans are excluded. Whites vote for whites and the blacks are the ones who suffer." Mara once uttered these words to the press. I have been an Idols fan for years now and I would personally like to see a black winner but I have a problem with the manner in which M-Net is going about to get a “so-called” black winner. Maybe what I am saying is rubbish. Your thoughts??
