As many of you know from a previous post that I am not a fan of BET. The recent comments by BET founder Bob Johnson in support of the Clinton’s does not help. Below is the quote from the AP.
“”To me, as an African-American, I am frankly insulted the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Hillary and Bill Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues – when Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood; I won’t say what he was doing, but he said it in his book – when they have been involved,” Johnson said.
Barack cannot say this so I will. Mr. Johnson is the last person who should be criticizing anyone’s wrong doing in the black community (I hate the word African American). Many of the negative sterotypes of the black community can be attributed to the BET. Turn on BET anytime of the day and all you see will is are videos of half naked women, thugs, and drug dealers. The goal of every individual in most of these videos is to get money, sex, and popularity by any means necessary (pimping, selling drugs, stealing etc). I repeat “By any mean necessary”….Mr. Johnson I am not buying your Kool-aid as you have gotten rich by “any means necessary”.
