I don't think Bing Crosby got a Kennedy Center award--but his buddy Bob Hope sure did. bounce

Other typical Kennedy Center honoree names:

-- Fred Astaire
-- Henry Fonda
-- Aaron Copeland
-- Frank Sinatra
-- Tennessee Wiliams
-- Marian Anderson
-- James Gagney
-- Rudolf Serkin
-- Cary Grant
-- Count Basie
-- Leonard Bernstein
-- Helen Hayes
-- Gene Kelly
-- James Stewart
-- Arthur Miller
-- Bette Davis
-- Lucille Ball
-- Ray Charles
-- George Burns
-- Claudette Colbert
-- Harry Belafonte
-- Gregory Peck
-- Roy Acuff
-- Lionel Hampton
-- Paul Newman
-- Ginger Rogers
-- Pete Seeger
-- Aretha Franklin
-- Kirk Douglas
-- B. B. King
-- Maria Tallchief
-- Andre Previn
-- Stevie Wonder
-- Sean Connery
-- Willie Nelson
-- Shirley Temple
-- Clint Eastwood
-- Luciano Pavarotti
-- Jack Nicholson
-- Quincy Jones
-- Julie Andrews
-- Mikhail Baryshnikov
-- Tony Bennett
-- Robert Redford
-- Tina Turner
-- Steven Spielberg
-- Dolly Parton

-- Robert DeNiro
-- Dave Brubeck
-- Bruce Springsteen
-- Barbra Streisand
-- Oprah
-- Paul McCartney
-- Mel Brooks
-- Neil Diamond
-- Merle Haggard
-- Kirk Douglass
-- Bob Dylan

That is just a sampling, but I think you get the picture. Did you see any Spanish names? Suspect The bias is obvious, and it has been noted.

For 35 years the Kennedy Center has been presenting these awards. And I found only two Spanish names

-- Chita Rivera
-- Placido Domingo

That's it! That all there are!

Today, it appeared as a banner headline in the Washington post:

ARE THE KENNEDY CENTER HONORS BIASED?
