Also I don't know any educated African American that even supports BET. BET is basically glorifying ignorance of the black communities and exploiting it.
Also MTV does the same thing but exploiting ignorance of young dumb people in general.
Plenty of Educated Black people support the station.......In what way does it glorify ignornance? By saying this I'm guessing you mean they endorse blackness, which by many in American is considered to be ignorance, in which case your a.ssuming the station is embarassing because of how it is perceived by people outside the race. Now I will admit back in the day the channel did not promote alot of substance....but the channel has grown up considerably considering the shows that are aired now on both centric and the regular station. But I mean we all have our opinions..........when I hear people like you say things like this though...I have to question if your seriously feel like the channel views in a bad light or your just embarrassed by the fact that some whites dont understand it.Now if it was VH1 then I could understand your concern.......but then again Basketball wives is 1 of the most popular shows on the channel...........now who is watching that bullsh*t and why is that not put on blast like BET when VH1 does nothing but promote shows that promote Sambo bullsh*t.
Maybe the show isn't for everyone..........but I guarantee the hatred that is the last several pages of this thread has alot more to do with the distaste for the what BET represents
(that primarily being programming aimed at black audiences)........then what the channel actually shows on a regular basis...................but there is a fine line between bullsh*t and reality.....and it seems to many people want to walk the line of bullsh*t.....rather then face anyone's reality..........the internet has fu*ked this world up severely
