I know Bob Johnson don't care for us, b/c he wouldnt had sold it if he did. True at the million of music shows, but we did had that jazz program, BET New & Teen Summit with that big booty vixen Ananda Lewis (speaking of which there was extra hot woman hosting some music show r&b i think....I forgot her name).
BET was bad to begin with. It just gotten wayy worse with all the whiteness. You can't deny that it gotten more whitewash then b4. Providing positive entertainment solely for black ppl was the main goal for BET (even if Bob Johnson did lied about that, other ppl running it should had continue that goal). Bob Johnson & Viacom is at fault. Bob know how evil Viacom is and Viacom fault is for being racist & evil.
Sure "Somebodies", "Hey Monie", "Black Panther", "Hannibal the Conqueror" etc. was produced after BET was brought by viacom...but by then it was more whitewash then ever. And look what happen to those shows....both of them got canceled, BP aint even on there yet, Hannibal is i dont even know. Cause Viacom think we are just stupid monkeys only into eating fried chicken, watermelon being ignorant, violent & just listening to hip hop.
You are right with BET should had been like TVOne. But, you honestly think with Viacom running it, it is going to get like that? Viacom is not our friend at all. If Hudlin was there when BET was Black owned "prolly" more original cool stuff would had been produced. In order for black corporations to be big like whites, we need to stop looking for short term greed. Cause white corps. rule most of the world's money (Cola Cola make 80% of their money outside of America). NBC rejected Bill Cosby's money TWICE to buy their channel. Cause they are scare we are going to take over. Just like with sports, musics, etc.
Alot of studios rejected the idea of Outkast's Idlewild cause these white executives thought that "blacks wouldnt want see a movie about black ppl in the 30's"....and this was right after the huge success of their "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below."http://www.comicvine.com/news/san-diego-comic-con-2009-reggie-hudlin/138986/
Even in this interview she ask something like to Mr. Hudlin: "You still think that (black) kids of today would still be able to related to BP?" Now, she wouldn't DARE ask that question about a white character. B/c it would be look as a stupid one, since white can totally relates to powerful gods & black totally cant
I shown these 2 examples to make you realize that these white corps. really don't care about us. But then again, you & Hudlin are in hollywood. Y'all know about this racist bs more then me.
Sure, both Bob & Viacom are evil. But Viacom always been the greater evil & has more power. Also remember Bob is black, I am not gonna go all out on a fellow brotha. Bob sadly lost his way and I wish he can stop selling out.
Sry. if you think I felt that the old BET was godly good, cause to me it wasnt. It just gotten worse with the all the whiteness. There better shows now then b4...but also gotten much more white. I dont want it to come to a point where it has good shows.......with hardly any blacks ppl in them. For that, I can watch the hundred of other channels. BET should had always stay F.U.B.U.
