He has a point when he implies the South doesn't support its "lyrical" rappers
Bet stopped being about/for Blacks years ago. If anything it is a tool of destruction to Blacks. Robert Johnson a coon For selling it to Viacom. I knew what it was before I clicked the link. Fuck BET,Fuck Viacom, Fuck ol girl even though I don't know her, fuck em.
cosign the bolded. BET was doing more harm to the people of the black community that viewed it than good.
that's a big misconception... people always say that about BET.. what have they done to harm the black community?
they don't play music videos unless its on 106 and park.. they play reruns of family matters... the Parkers.. the game ect.. and black movies
if you want to watch ratchet black shows... you have to watch vh1
Well from what I remembered I thought they had shows equivalent to MTV's Real World, but a black version. I used to watch rap city everyday and some old shows like Martin but I remember I stopped watching cuz I thought all the new programs were garbage.
I also thought it was a stereotypical channel and that if it is represented as black entertainment television why did it seem so much like a black version of MTV, who's target audience were young teens.
There was barely any informative or educational programs on there and I think I remember hearing that they had to stop news segments because they got no ratings for it.
All I'm saying is they shouldnt have slapped the "Black" brand on it but they did it just to build a black TV market. And u could tell in the quality of its programs.
