    Is having a channel named BLACK ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION racist?
    Did any non black performers win at the 2010 BET awards?
    How many non blacks are promoted on BET's 106 and Park countdown show?

    Is the BET concept racist?

    As long as minorities choose to seperate themselves from the rest of society, there will always be the outcry of racism.

    You can be strong when you stick with your race, but imagine how much stronger you will become when you decide to work together instead of holding everyone else back.

    I think that is the only way to really stop racism.

    It would be if white people couldn't watch it. I used to watch reruns of In Living Color on there.

    It's TV. The only rule is to make money. If a company could be profitable with KKKTV they'd find a way to get on the air.

    Probably because you're a racist who notices these things.

    Last time I saw 106 and Park, Rob Thomas was the guest. I used to watch Everybody Hates Chris on there before it started on Nick at Nite.

    Not really. I'm just observant, but thanks for insinuating.

    TV is funded by advertising. Advertising is directed, in part, by demographics. African Americans are a demographic.

    Many advertisers have budgets for targeting African American and/or Minority consumers. Thus, it makes sense to have channels specifically for these demographics.

    On the other hand, you won't find a lot of advertisers setting aside a Caucasian marketing budget.

    Anyway, if you really want White Entertainment Television it's called GAC.

    why would it be racist?

    many of the mainstream shows and channels (probably close to 90%) have a white person or people anchoring the shows. mainstream channels are essentially WET, it just goes without saying. whites don't need to create their own channel because they already have one or many.

    It's racist. Period.

    So are black universities.. and the NAACP. Anyone saying that "most people on TV are white" - well, isn't most of American white? It's not some crazy coincidence people.

    FUBU
    NAACP
    Black universities
    BET

    All that is racist.

    Those are for a different language, not race. If it was Ebonics Entertainment Television then you'd have a point.

    I disagree my brotha, the whole point of BET and "historically black colleges" was to expose success and education and inspiration to the young black community. In many cases, black folks that were successful attempted to build ins utions (commercial and private) that enabled the community rather than allow them to feel disabled, BET and colleges just two examples.

    Now, in these modern times, we're getting further away from the neccessity to have them, but there was a time when they were good. And so, they exist as reminders of the cultural journey and not actual proponents of one race over another.

    Also, M&M's rap career has helped bridge the BET Awards ceiling. I'm sure he's won something or performed for them.

    PS: Whites can get into Morehouse, they don't discriminate. Try it.
