BET: Still on the Menu (via The Unmitigated Word)


Very interesting…

BET: Still on the Menu I hate writing this post. But I guess it needs to be said. Duane, my blogging buddy over at the Black Informant, makes a pretty compelling argument defending Black Entertainment Television (BET): Twitter and Facebook was on complete fire last night of folks providing blow by blow details of what was taking place on the BET Awards show. Ironically, many of the comments I was reading came from people who at times complain about how BET make all Bla … Read More

    I have to agree. There was this movie on BET a couple months ago and all the Clemson black people I follow on Twitter seemed to be watching it and tweeting about how awful it was. A few of the CU blacks said: “Y’all are the reason BET’s still around. By sitting around, watching and analyzing this mess, you’re giving them more ratings.”

    I’ve never really thought about BET’s presence in the WORLD like that, but with us only comprising abt 13% of the US population, there’s no way it’s just us that’s keeping BET afloat, just like it wasn’t just us that got Obama in office. I guess I should have wondered abt BET’s world impact when things like the BET Awards happen to be the #1 TT worldwide, but I just assumed black people run Twitter [mainly due to other TT’s like #thingsnxggasdo]…which is also a bit much for me to assume.

    In order for BET to get its act together, Black America’s going to have to seriously boycott it, but even the one’s boycotting watch BET’s foolery to make sure their argument against it is still relevant.

    and Red Cross fact: Blacks represent less than 1 percent of blood donors. We must do better.

    Lmao I loved how you added that blood part. But yeah I’m tired of everyone criticizing music, media, people etc and NOTHING being done. We know that video girls and rap music are hurting the community, we know that kids and white people are watching tv and getting a negative perception of black people, but what are going to DO about it? Talk is cheap and will get us nowhere in the long run. That is why I’m on #TeamTV1 lol

      TV1 is that junk! lol

      I volunteered today and there was a fact sheet about African Americans. I tweeted that fact today to raise some awareness lol. That’s unacceptable. Sadly, we’re the most prevalent race in the AIDS epidemic so that probably cuts down our list of potential donors. :-/
