No matter how much anyone against Kanye West headlining on Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage claims it's nothing to do with racism or hip hop (a genre of music intrinsically tied to black people and the black experience), I can't help but feel uncomfortable and unsatisfied with these denials.

So what is it that Glastonbury does so well?
