It's funny when people say BET is racist. They point out if there was a WET it would be racist which is true but CMT is WET. However they ignore or are ignorant of the fact that BET is owned by white men. Irony ftw! Also BET stereotypes the hell out black people so I don't know why people target BET as racist because there is no WET. What do you think of people who say BET is racist also do you think its racist. Considering most TV is catered to whites and BET being owned by whites?
Not really. If I remember correctly, they played a lot of Obama commercials during and after the primaries in '08. That's a little iffy to me. It automatically makes the assumption that black people will vote for a black person solely because of the skin color.
And, I wouldn't call CMT the equivalent of BET to white people. That's stupid.
No it's not racist. Most networks and television shows cater to white people anyway, are they racist for not including more things for blacks? Is lifetime network sexist for being targeted to women? Is LOGO heterophobic? Some people always want to have a nonissue to complain about and never wanna see black people have sh*t
BET proper isn't racist. The name of an organization (unless found offensive) and the people they target (for entertainment) have nothing to do with the media or message the network promotes. If BET focused their efforts on the harm or destruction of any ethenic group, then the network would be liable for racist antics. However, the BET network (to the best of my knowledge) puts out no such message.
