Most of what you are saying is partially right, but the BET part is extremely wrong.BET is a TV channel that caters to a specific demographic. The same way Spike TV caters to men. Lifetime caters to women. Disney caters to kids, Telemundo caters to Hispanics. ESPN caters to sports fan, Hallmark caters to old people, and Logo TV caters to the LGBT community. There is nothing wrong with having TV channels that caters to specific demographics especially when 90% of TV channels are predominately white actors/actresses (who I may add are extremely overrepresented in the media). If BET is racist, then 99% of channels on TV is either racist, ageist, sexist, prejudice, xenonphobic or homophobic.NAACP is a civil rights organization so I don't know why you even included them in your rant.
@Starrk - I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on BET - that they play to a specific demographic. I've certainly seen radio stations doe similar things.But the NAACP? Nope. They promote and push only agendas for blacks. They totally ignore Asians in any sense. Several of the things they push are inherently racist. Things such as "reverse discrimination", lowering of standards so blacks can make the "team", as well. as "racial balance" in businesses. All those are based on a person's skin color rather than their ability, knowledge, or experience. When you make that criteria for acceptance, you don't do any good in the community. I have other examples if you'd like.
opposing racism by being racist towards white people, is like opposing nazism by gassing jews.
@gregnator you can't be racist based on whiteness because racism is systemic and institutionalized, and our societal structure privileges white people. Also in what way is it racist against white people to point out that they are privileged and other people matter too?
Systemic racism eh? Okay, show me some laws that benefit white people, and put down non whites. I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but institutionalized racism doesn't exist anymore. Yes, it did exist, however it does no longer exist. You can be racist against white people, because the definition of racism is: discrimination and prejudicetowards people based on their race or ethnicity. Everyone can be racist, and no matter how much you scream: "ITS POWER PLUS PREJUDICE! " it won't change the definition of racism.

the Alt right didn't begin as a white supremacist racist group either. those hijackers made blm into a racist hateful group, nobody within blm is doing anything against it, so they accept it.
@gregnator I'm not so sure about that. I know plenty of fellow black Americans like myself, who are disgusted at how the BLM movement has been hijacked.Maybe the media isn't covering people who think myself, because that doesn't generate "clicks"/"views"/"shares".
White people should all work out and carry weapons and kill anyone that attacks them.If someone tried that crap against a kid that was mine, I would smash their face in. I don't care if it is a little kid doing it to them.Many Black people are racist and try to mess over White people any chance they get. Not surprised if this comment gets removed for telling the truth but that's how it really is.
@AynonOMouse This exactly they like to target White People. And it's not an attack on Black People individually as I know good people and I have made many black friends in my life.
@AynonOMouse But for those who like to discriminate against white people because of past events we have nothing to do with, who like to attack children. Which unfortunately too many are like that. As you have said it's best if white people learn to exercise and use weapons for the sake of protection.
True, also not all nazis want to kill jews
