So, BET doesn't have a news show? Call Tyler Perry!

Would this mean the white networks no longer have to show black news? Or does this kind of equality only work one way?

I thought rap music was the CNN of the black community.

The only significant difference between a BNN and CNN? One letter.

Why not?

Separation and isolation is what MLK had in mind after all......isn't it?

Yes. Arsenio Hall will have a news show called "Good Morning, Black America". It will be played at noon throughout the country.

Whitney Houston's death received, and continues to receive, far more attention than it deserves.

From what i gather, BET only plays 'Everybody Hates Chris' and something called 'The Game'. 24/7.

The First Four Katy Perry Albums: Would this mean the white networks no longer have to show black news? Or does this kind of equality only work one way?


I think you know the answer to that;)

BTW have you seen ? African Americans for Obama (new window)

You'll never see Caucasian Americans For Romney / Santorum / Gingrich / Paul? Shenanigans would be frowned upon.
 
2012-02-24 01:40:01 PM  
So, BET chased ratings by playing up her career and hits. Others chased ratings by playing up her destructive lifestyle and habits, and black peoples have a problem with this?

Jeezus, Entertainment tonight is nothing but 24x7 Whitney Houston......she was a weak human being who also happened to sing pretty well when she wasn't wasted.

Who cares?

I stop reading an article when the sources include anything involving a social network.

Absolutely! The butthurt from the oppressed white man minorajority would be glorious. There is a lot of trolling potential there so I vote yes.

This may be the worst idea in civil rights history.

It will be much easier for the remaining racists to dismiss views as unfair when they come from such a channel. Look how FOX "news" is negatively impacting how people view conservatism.

I want to go on record as saying an all black news channel would be a net negative for racial equality!
 
2012-02-24 02:58:31 PM  
So "COPS" is no longer being aired?

Iceberg659: Absolutely! The butthurt from the oppressed white man minorajority would be glorious. There is a lot of trolling potential there so I vote yes.


That's true. But it would ALSO make it much easier to spread fear and distrust of "the blacks".

Besides, I thought we were trying to get PAST the whole equal but separate thing.
 
2012-02-24 03:02:23 PM  
It would be like Fox News....only darker. So, no.

We have enough biased news jackasses.

Seriously, all they have to offer is better coverage on what meth-head is dating what rapper? And they want to throw in that idiot Sharpton?

Whitney Houston's mainstream media coverage left many frustrated


That they were constantly covering it? Yes that was very frustrating. There are all kinds of open places in Africa where a television station would have very little hills/mountains blocking their transmission, if ya feel me?

Seeing as Black History Month is wholly ignored by 98% of non-black America, a black "news" channel should be a huge success.

/sarcasm tag exploded enroute
