Harry Belafonte?<quoted text> Do you think that blacks having a channel on cable that caters to their particular humor and culture is racist against whites? Bahahaha! And if the BET channel didn't exist, there would be what kind of programs and shows left, hummm? The awards show! Now c'mon! That's a no brainer. The Oscars, Academy, golden globe, awards are not centured around whites in Hollywood?
You watch Django. The 'characters ' are fictional but the system that created the Frankenstein like urban black, is not fictional and the lasting affects of that horrible system can be seen today.
being isolated on a farm, you wouldn't experience the hell that millions go through in America because of their color. Just read some of the post about blacks on Topix, across the country.
And I'm sure that 'Captain American ' picture had you thinking I was white. Did you think Hugh III was black by his picture? Hahaha! Guess who's coming to dinner?
WA, I was far from 'isolated.' My dad's business made it necessary for him to travel, live different places. When he did, we lived in neighborhoods, not on the farm. My mom, Dad called her 'the globetrotter', because she traveled so much and took us along.
I don't even remember the captain America logo you had. I just interacted with you as another person. Isn't that possible?
30 years ago, you rarely saw a black on TV. That is certainly not the case anymore. And are you telling me that because of the difference in our races, I can't understand your humor? That makes no sense. I watch the Tyler Perry (I hope that's right) shows. Seem like any normal family to me. I don't watch much TV. I don't say BET is racist against whites, I am saving if anyone created a White Entertainment TV, they would be crucified as racists.
The Oscars, Globes, Emmys, all revolve around all entertainers. Many. Many blacks have won them. Lord, who could forget Cuba Goodings' acceptance of the oscar and calling Jack Lemon up on stage.
The Black Entertainment awards are CLOSED to every other race.
As far as slavery being responsible for the "Frankenstein urban blacks' of today, if you want to stick with that story, stand up and help break that mindset. That system doesn't exist anymore. Stop using it as an excuse and perpetuating it onto your youth. Lay it down and be done with it. Is it slavery that created all the white criminals and prisoners?
No, I won't watch the movie. I don't watch anything that glorifies man's inhumanity to man. No one living today is proud of slavery. Can you just drop the anger at US and move forward and out of it?
There have been tragedies in my life and my ancestor's too. No one lives a completely charmed life.
