Didja check out how the CNN video report began in the first link with prompts to a children's demographic program comparing Sesame Street, Electric Co. (which btw, Morgan Freeman was just a young, bushy-eye, recurring extra!) and Schoolhouse Rock to BET's 18-34 old demographic? ???

Boy, those geniuses at CNN are critiquing that BET caters to the lowest of the low Common Denominator? ;D
For shame, Tony Harris...! :)

Sigh. I don't get it. Well I do but I don't understand why black folks spend so much energy fighting themselves when clearly there are bigger dangers to us and definitely more dangers then BET. Hell if BET is such an issue turn the channel. HBO with its new shows showing dicks on cable gets a pass but rap top ten does not.

* have yall peeped that new hbo show. :D folks were getting laid every 30 seconds.

It was said before:  Banning a song or video is an easy win.  Actually fixing sexism, education, low self-esteem...now that's hard.

Hmmmmm....I agree with the outraged parents.  (somewhat)

The song on it's own is kind'a offensive.
It's that kick'ass animation that elevates it to genius!

Bring on more!

Glad you like it, but I gotta disagree with you about the song.  Once I heard "not a sports page, not a magazine" I knew it was genius.  And "buy some land, f*ck spinning rims" is magnificient.

Well.....if I'ma park my child in front of the TV for hours on end, I fully expect that kid to come away well-educated, physically fit and socially responsible!  Don't you parents agree?

Thanks for the link.

I have never seen Harris in this pompous and condescending manner ever on CNN. I will have to look at his demeanor during other segments and interviews before I say what I really think he is. Though from the looks of it he could be McCaulley's soulmate if he were not a damged beyond repair Black man of course.

It's time for this woman to get exposed. McCaulley is an anti Black eugenicist who describes Black men as being Damged beyond Repair aka DBR and the majority of Black women as being genetically inferior. To this point " The New Martin Luther King" came up with the term Melineated to differentiate herself from the common inferior Black women.

This self-hating, delusional FASOOM leader is the one telling Reggie and Debra Lee that they hate Black people. If she pops up on national TV and her background doesn't get exposed something is really wrong. 

Where's the link on her background?

Just curious.

To be fair, wasn't there a link of HEF to an article before Read a Book's debut that called it a PSA a la Schoolhouse Rock?

I haven't read the link, my virtual friend however, I should have been more clear...

You can parody any kind material by borrowing a creative technique to help make a point. Every creative layer of 'Read a Book' from the key drawings, the sound, the subject matter... everything...used devices we're all familiar with to bring it to 'life'. That's what the creators of the 'Read a Book' short was doing; subliminal advertising ...from an African-American point-of-view.

The CNN report wasn't just comparing an entirely different age demographic (5-14 yr olds) but a an entirely different era (the 70s) giving the impression that the animated short was intended for children. That's what I didn't understand.
 

EDITED for clarity
