Motown vs. Stax/Atlantic records, who’s the sellout?

According to Covach, “The enormous crossover appeal of Motown records and artists in the mid 1960’s combined with Berry Gordy’s desire to appeal not only to white teens but alsoto a predominantly white, middle class audience, has frequently prompted criticisms that Motown sold out to white America. Some writers have characterized the Southern Soul of Stax/Atlantic as being truer to black culture than the productions of Motown…”What are your thoughts on this controversy?
