BET Black Entertainment Television



Am I the only one who thinks having a channel dedicated to a specific race such as BET promotes racial division and possibly can be considered as racist?

Yes, you're the only one. BET is owned by Viacom goofball.

Black people invented NASCAR. Brad Daugherty is on NASCAR all the time.

Meh. BET doesn't bother me. All the shows on there suck pretty hardcore anyway.

Free Market.

If the ideas that BET promotes aren't divisive but are good for black folk...all the better. If BET does promote racial division, in a nation where the Constitution - and it's protection of INDIVIDUALS - as opposed to groups is being eroded...and where Blacks are a significantly proportional minority...they might want to rethink promoting division. Could be unhealthy.

Driving cars or watching cars in that culture?

NASCAR telecasts are good ol' boy Revivals...doubt they aim toward inclusion...token notwithstanding.

Black people like music too...doesn't mean CET programs for them.

Nothing wrong with BET having race specific programming.

The only problem I have with it is that I have employees who legitimately ask off for the BET awards.

Why wow?

Are you being obtuse?

Have you ever watched a NASCAR telecast?

African-American presence is basically null.

And the entire programming is so specific to Southern white culture...they don't broadcast it like the NFL or NBA or baseball.

southern rural culture, to be more accurate. lots of country black people love them some NASCAR

lots of urban white people detest NASCAR
