Not sure what to make of this...

The president of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame accuses Paul Stanley of being racist
Recently, Kiss bas been making the rounds in terms of news featuring the R&R HOF. But now, their rhythm guitarist looks to be making some trouble, or is he? The president of the R&R HOF accuses Stanley of being racist

President Joel Peresman talked to about the induction ceremony and he praised Gene Simmons speech, calling it "classy, lovely" while saying that Stanley was "borderline racist, not in that speech but in other interviews as well. Talking about why hip hop artists shouldn't be inducted because they don't play instruments. It's like "What are you, kidding?""

Not real sure on what 'Stanley' is being referred to here, but some would assume the greasepaint wearing rock hero pictured here. But Simmons was slightly critical in his opinion on induction of hip hop artists. But two months prior, Gene had this to say "You go on with your bad self and get more disco artists…You’ve got Grandmaster Flash in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Run-D.M.C. in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? You’re killing me! That doesn’t mean those aren’t good artists. But they don’t play guitar. They sample and they talk. Not even sing…They can run their organization any way they’d like, but it ain’t rock! It just isn’t! If you don’t play guitar and you don’t write your own songs, you don’t belong there."
