ontariolightning: I suppose if we had a white person channel they would all shout racism

Black people have BET

Hispanics now have their own news channel

Natives have their own channel called APN

Damn racists

We already have a channel for white people. It's called EVERY OTHER GODDAMN CHANNEL.

Network could also use Xuxa (shoe-sha). Shoe-sha was some '90s era medium-grade Univision fapping material. She had a variety show with a bunch of other bimbos dressed as cosmic majorettes. The constant high boots were kind of annoying.

By the way, Bumblebee guy was inspired by Univision, although I don't know where you'd find reference to it. (Hombre abeja?) There are some pretty hardcore Japanophile Farkers in the Japan threads that come out with all sorts of arcane knowledge, but not so much in the Mexican Fark threads. Anyway, Hombre abeja used to show up on the variety show circuit, which they love the shiat out of, but not so much anymore. Here's another great piece of information: when I looked for pics of Xuxa, I found one labeled "Xuxa pagando boquete" which means "paying flowers" which apparently means sucking schlonger.

ontariolightning: I don't fit the definition of a racist and you cannot say so

This is fark. I sure as hell can and I will.

And you are.

All I did was question

This is called "accusation by posing a question" which Fox News does hourly. You have been accusing "those guys over there" as having "special" privileges, when they do not.

why its okay that some ethnic groups can have their own months, channels, holidays and white people don't

Because whites most certainly do have their own holidays. What the fark do you think Victoria day is? It's the farking whitest holiday on the planet.

I find it hilarious that you are not ranting about French broadcasting, because "Quebecois are getting special treatment."

farking racist *and* a moron. A winning combination if there ever was one.

You sound so much like the brain-addled idiots at Stormfront. Go burn your cross elsewhere.

Latinos have Cinco de Mayo, which is a celebration of Mexico's Independence the liberation of Mexico City from the French.

It is a Northern Mexican Holiday celebrated by Frat boys in the US.

ontariolightning: BET is all black

If there was a TV Channel called WET (White Entertainment) it would be seen as racist right?
So why not BET?

yes, I know WET makes it sound like a porn channel, I'm just saying

Why is one right but not the other?

Why because a majority of television programing caters to primarily white audiences and before BET and Univsion, there was no realistic depiction of racial minorities. There are European only holidays. Columbus day is an example and Cinco de Mayo is celebrated by more white frat boys than Mexicans. Go to the Yacatan and ask about Cinco de Mayo?

The reason why there is black history month is because for the last 200 +years it was only white history.

When White people become a minority and under represented in the media then you will see a need for the WET channel.

ontariolightning: for those that deny black people are as racist as any race go drive through a primarily black ghetto

I farking dare you

ontariolightning: Black people are also A LOT less accepting of homosexuality as well and they are more likely to be religious

Daaaaamn, chico. Blacks, religious people, poor people, even homophobes. What aren't you afraid of?

(Relax, I'm white and Anglo. I didn't want my use of a Spanish word to make you nervous.)

ontariolightning: why don't you go fark yourself. I honestly don't care about this..all I was doing was making an observation that only white people can't have their own channels, their own schools, etc

We did. It was a resounding failure.

The only ones clamouring for the bad old days have sheets with the celtic cross on them.

Here's your card.

On that subject, if you actually watch Univision for a bit it's quite apparent they only hire light-skinned actors.
