The only reason that BET even exists is because networks like MTV did not feature, promote or acknowledge the existence of black music, which is ironic given the fact that origin of all music is "black music" because it originated in Africa. For decades the Grammys, The American Music Awards and Country Music Awards and others have featured mostly white artists. But that was okay......because that was the way it was supposed to be. After all America was only considered post racial as long as those in charge were able to compartmentallze, and marginalize the rest of the country while using themselves as the standard by which ALL things should be measured.
But in all honesty my purpose in writing this is to chastise those who are actually concerned about this. White people should be more concerned with the seeds that are being planted in their youth. Hateful seeds that manifest themselves in the murders of 9 innocent people in church. Instead of trying to change the narrative, why don't you try to figure out why a young white man goes bezerk every few years and commits mass murder. With that being said, Black people need to prioritize, and not be distracted by insignificance. Nothing on BET, concerning BET, or having to do with BET is really important enough to meritt our concern, debate, or anger. We must keep our eyes on the ball and stop allowing ourselves to be distracted by nonsense.
