10:21 pm - Racism and roosters
Okay question: Should there be a channel such as BET (Black Entertainment Television)? Isnt it showing racism? I have no problem with blacks and have many different friends from many diferent cultures and countries; but is it right? If there was such a thing as "White Entertainment Televsion" someone would have their ass in a sling. No?

just a thought, but I do want some responses and posts, please.
Current Mood: fucking confused

If we had a channel such as "White Entertainment Television" it would be WET and that would just be too funny. I have had the same opinion as yours for along time. I do feel that it would cause a major racial problem however it would also bring bring to light the problem of "Reverse Racism" which I feel really needs to be addressed/

Much Luv.

I think we have things like BET because blacks were denied respect for so long. So now if we can embrace our culture through tv stations, or theatre, music, store, etc we do, because for so long we were the underdog. You can see it in other cultures too, like Mexican. (And what about Lifetime or Spike, the gender stations?) But hopeully we'll live to see the day we no one needs their own station b/c everyone feels "equal" (I guess that's the word I'm looking for). And I think that was the point you were making in this post.

But you're right White Entertainment Television would be nailed to the wall by NAACP so damn fast. But at the same time you could have things like celtic, scottish, italian entertainment. Why must the world be so confusing? With each generation I think race problems get better. Especially now that so many children are bi-racial. Farewell.
