    Found this tangentially via Twitter also. Good on MTV for publishing it.

    David Bowie has some questions and criticisms about MTV’s lack of videos featuring black artists in this 1983 interview with Mark Goodman.

    Some more commentary / annotation on i-D (part of Vice):

    "There seem to be a lot of black artists making very good videos that I'm surprised aren't used on MTV," Bowie adds, before Goodman suggests that some areas of the country are "scared to death" of black artists like Prince. "Should it not be a challenge [for MTV to take on] to make the media far more integrated?" Bowie asks. Goodman fobs him off a bit more before asking, "Does that make sense? Is that a valid point?" But Bowie's having none of it: responding, "I understand your point of view," and implying, "But I don't agree with you."
