    I’m glad someone is standing up against the bs that BET promotes and doesn’t have a narrow minded view as let’s just say for arguments sake Al Sharpton. Hopefully this makes positive waves throughout the communities and we don’t see an uproar of ignorance from rappers or network executives.

    IF ANYTHING THE LAST 20+ YEARS OF BLAcK NETWORK OWNERSHIP(BET, cLEAR cHANNEL, ETc) SHOULD TELL YOU IS THAT JUST AS ‘EVERY’ OTHERR ORGANIZATION OR cOMPANY THAT SURPASSES A PARTIKULAR PROFIT MARGAIN, IS OUT OF TOUcH WITH cONTENT & A KOMUNNITY’S PERcEPTION OF THAT cONTENT. FURTHERMORE, NOR DO THEY REALLY GIVE 2 SHITS ABOUT THE cONTENT, UNTIL IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO FUcK WITH THEIR BOTTOM LINES. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE NUMBERRS HOMIE! I MEAN, THINK ABOUT ALL THE SHIT THAT SLIPS BY AS IS, BUT DOES SO BEKUZ THE TOP BRAcKETS ARE MAINTAININ THAT BONUS & ‘cONSUMERS’ ARE USUALLY ONLY IN PROTEST, IN INSIGNIFIcANT NUMBERRS:
    ASSUMED cONcENSUS B’ING, ‘IF IT AINT BROKE…’

    BUT. I DO THINK THE REV IS ON TO SOMETHING BY PUTTING A cONTENT PAcKAGE TOGETHERR TO SHOP TO cORPORATE SPONSORS. ON A MASS ScALE WITH THE RITE cOVERAGE, THIS cOULD WORK! THE cORPS WILL HAVE NO cHOIcE BUT TO SUMBIT TO THE PROTESTOR’S DEMANDS(TO AN EXTENT)–KNOWING FULL WELL THAT BY THAT POINT, ALL MAJOR NEWS SOURcES(MINUS THE ONES THAT THESE PARTIKULAR cORPS OWN) WILL B RUNNIN A FINE-TOOTH cOMB ALL THROUGH THEIR SHIT. THEY’D MUcH RATHERR JUMP SHIP, THAN SINK…

    MOST OF THE TIME…

    BUT THEN AGAIN – LESS THAN 3% OF ALL MAJOR SHARE-HOLDERS OF U.S. cOMPANIES EXcEEDING $200M’S IN ANNUAL REVENUE ARE BLACK – SO IT REALLY DOESN’T AFFEcT THEM. 97% OF ‘THEM’ cAINT SAY ITS “THEIR” KIDS. SO, I GUESS IT FIGURES…

    BUT AMEN! I HATE 3/4 OF THE SHIT PLAY ANYWAY!

    All true @ HEADBANGERR – I do feel that our leaders in various black communities must police this stuff. We do not have strong enough parenting/family in order to just leave it up to black consumers to protest this stuff economically. Most of us accept whatever slop (in the form of videos, music, black tv shows, etc) that is thrown at us. We need these leaders to threaten protest against the sponsors of BET’s largely garbage programming. It works all the time (i.e. the dog groups threatening a nationwide boycott of Home Depot if there owner didnt drop MIKE VICK from his ATL Falcon’s team). Our people accept substandard service (peep store service in our stores versus stores located in white neighborhoods), disregard crime in the community under the guise of (‘no snitching’), and blame racism for politicians not working in our community (instead of realizing that polls know where their votes come from and work for those people). Until we get active as a people, it will left to our leaders to deliver the wake up call to these various organizations poisoning the communities minds.

    EXAKTLY–FOR INSTANcE: MR. cOLLIPARK’S MOTHERR SHOULD B SMAcKING HER SON IN THE HEAD, FOR ALLOWING “SUPERMAN THAT HOE..” & “YAAAH, TRIcK. YAAAAH!” TO B KREATED & DISTRIBUTED TO THE MASSES. BUT IM SURE SHE IS KOMFORTABLE IS THE BRAND NEW 2007 HOUSE IN THE ATL SUBURBS THAT HER BABY BOY JUST PURCHASED HER. SO, THIS IS DEF A PARENTING ISSUE!!! WHIcH FURTHERR PROVES YOUR POINT & MINE, S.MATHIS.

    SEEMS THESE ISSUES IN THE BLAcK KOMMUNITIES WILL GO ON UNRESTRIcTED, AS LONG AS THERE IS THE UNIVERSAL AccEPTANcE OF THE KURRENT STATE OF B’ING-> POLIcIES, SKOOLS, SAFTY. SHIT, EVEN PRODUCE, LIKE YOU MENTIONED EARLIER… ALL I KNOW IS, THE WHITE FOLKS DROPPED HOME DEPOT’S 3RD QUARTER PROFIT MARGINS BY 4%(YTD), OVERR MIKE VIcK’S EXPLOITS AND HAVEN’T REKOVERED YET!

    SO, UNTIL THEN, PREPARE FOR THE 2008 ONSLAUGHT OF BLAcK SOCIAL DEPRAVITY…
