I am looking forward in watching BET animation; to see how a % of Blacks act in real life developed in animation as in this video presentation just rubbed me the wrong way.  I feel the beat, the message Read a book, brush your teeth, etc..... it was just knowing and viewing how a % of our family (family I mean Black folk) lifestyle is the way it was shown in the video. 

I would say that this video maybe is one of the most real life protrait video ever.  Just my POV. we all will agree and/or disagree. 

I love it because it's the most shocking thing you can say...tell people to drink water and read a book. 

On the real Reg...we gotta be in LARGE TROUBLE if we can SHOCK people by telling them to drink water and read a book.

I heard the song (by an indie artist), thought it should be on rotation on BET, so I had my animation department do a video for it, and now it's in rotation.

Almost immediately, it’s clear that the video for “Read a Book,” Bomani “D’mite” Armah’s chant-style rap, isn’t like Black Entertainment Television’s usual offerings: In it, a group of faceless, pink-spandex-clad cartoon dancers forcefully thrust their ample booties up and down to the beat, with the letters b-o jiggling on one butt cheek and o-k on the other.

“Not a sports page/Not a magazine/But a book, nigga/A f*ckin’ book nigga, yeah,” Armah screams, mimicking Lil Jon. He goes on to demand that listeners raise their kids, wear deodorant, and buy property rather than spinning rims.

Armah, a 29-year-old Mitchellville, Md., native now living in Petworth, recorded “Read a Book” three years ago,
