No, it's because white people donated some money to you dumb @ss negros, but wouldn't allow you to use it on crack, so you made a tv channel which not even the negros will watch.

The sad thing is that just because its African-American targeted you take that to mean everyone can't watch. But of course, YOU see African-American and automatically feel its something not for you too. Every network has a target so know that this is only "segregated" because YOU see it that way. African-Americans, especially the owners, would welcome everyone one to watch, so really its the non-African-Americans that are still the ones keeping it segregated. African-Americans are suppose to be able to look at things were they are barely, if at all, represented and its okay. But let the shoe be on the other foot, and then you trip about it being "segregated", why because its geared to showcasing African-Americans. Yet you expect people to feel things have really changed.

The last thing we need is to have a t.v. channel. Too many folks glued to the idiot box as it is.

How would you feel about a White entertainment channel, a White Miss America, or a Congressional White Caucus?

I agree that there needs to be another African-American TV network because BET doesn't represent what Black America truely is and in order to get real representation of who we are, we must start anew... BET was great when it began but it started going in the mid to late 90's, then took it death after Bob Johnson sold it to Viacom....

In case you never read a history book or you have been asleep until 2011, EVERYTHING is already automatically WHITE. Hence the need for BET, CBC and Miss Black America.

When POC and females stop having firsts, then the need for Telemundo, Miss Asia, press 1 for English, and Affirmative Action (being the WW cause that it is) will disappear.
