1 So basically, there are some forms of segregation and discrimination that are "ok" and some are not. BET is apparently ok to make as a passively racist device, who made that decision? -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on December 24, 2012, 12:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I think what is being got at, is that if there was a channel that was dedicated "White TV", not just normal everyday stuff like most of the stations out there, it would be viewed upon as extremly racist. But a Black TV station?!? Ain't that keeping racism alive and well, instead of Blacks wanting to be "equals" -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 23, 2012, 6:37 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Dang! I came in here, hoping there would be other black viewers who would have the same opinion as I on BET, yet, it is obvious by the top vote that nobody but whites have been in this forum ..*sigh* ...and WHY do y'all keep on w/ the rhetorical questions of a BLACK entertainment Network, etc.? Do you ask women why there is a need for a Women's Day magazine? Do you even question gays on the LOGO channel? Talk about HYPOCRISY! ..and you do not need a WHITE entertainment channel, when 90% of the people you see on tv is white ..I betcha RIGHT NOW that if I turned on the tv to a random station, a white face will appear. So, WHY would I put a label on things in my own home? And BET was conceived back in the early 80s, when MTV, which is, supposedly, a GENERAL music station, WOULD NOT PLAY any black videos! ..But anyways ...BET jumped shark when Bob Johnson sold out to Viacom, and shows w/ substance were removed, such as BET News, BET Tonight (w/ Tavis Smiley), Lead Story, Teen Summit, Video Soul, Carribean Rhythms, etc...and these shows were replaced w/ series, etc., that promoted negativity, such as American Gangsta, BEEF ..and they began to show "Baby Boy" and "Soul Plane" all the time... I think I gave a response that TRULY answers why the channel jumped shark -- Submitted By: () on December 22, 2012, 1:57 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Where do i possibly begin?? BET boned the fish when they got rid of Free & AJ, thus ruining the original 106 & Park. Ask anybody, EVER SINCE Free & AJ have been gone, 106 which was one of their major programs, has sucked complete ass. Rocsi was always beyond annoying. BET also got rid of the original Rap City: The Bassment with Big Tigga. The channel is so unpredictable as far as the line-up. For example once they played Moesha a few times. Then u don't see it come on again for maybe 6 months. WTF? They also did the same thing with One On One. A lot of ppl like those shows and they are quite popular, but they only show them once or twice in a blue moon and then start showing garbage shows like "My Wife & Kids" and "The Bernie Mac Show" which are both unfunny with bad acting. BET also plays the same movies over & over (if i flip through the channels and see "Daddy's Little Girls" one more time i'm going to go AWOL). Love & Basketball is a great movie and they only play that like once a year. BET is so hit and miss that it's beyond annoying and not worth bothering with most of the time. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on November 28, 2012, 11:02 am - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
5 it wasn't trying to be mainstream. it's founder looked for a niche that would be interested in programming specific to that demographic -- just like several other cable channels dedicated to religious and ethnic entertainment (e.g., Telemundo). A white channel wouldn't be necessary because it's already mainstream in many channels. i'll cautiously vote never boned although i cringe at it's growing focus on reality tv. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 9, 2009, 10:02 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Hte peak of Hypocrisy from the black community who wants to be "included" in mainstream society and not disscriminated against- BLACK ENTERTAINMENT?? Lets put the "colored only" signs over water fountains while we are at it- but if blacks self segregate- it's ok? Where is White Entertainment Television? -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 9, 2009, 3:40 pm - (6 votes) - Login to Vote
