    Yeah, the drugs were a biggie. Other races did and do drugs, but we just ****ed ourselves up big time on them.

    Soul Glo
    or the movie Coming to America?

    Cause from what I can tell, both did wonders for the African American community, world wide. Horrible for those who had friends who used Soul Glo and slouched on their couches or stayed the night over.

    Coming to America may have sucked, but Eddie Murphy's white man disguise gag is great so it should negate Coming to America.

    Cashier: *charges black man for the newspaper. Waits for him to leave, looks to Murphy disguised as a white man, also buying a newspaper* Go on! Take it!

    Classic :up:

    I've sen that stupid show before. Leave it to BET to not air something positive and uplifting for our people. How about the Booker T Washington story?? How the Black Inventors??? Black Firsts?? How about inspiring the young black minds that watch that channel!! The message they get is

    THE MAN IS DOIN' US WRONG.
    WE'RE PO' AND ALWAYS WILL BE.
    BUSH IS EVIL
    AMERICA IS EVIL.
    I DON'T NEED AN EDUCATION
    GANGSTA RAP IS GOOD.
    BEING A GANGSTA IS COOL.

    Noooooo......they go get Paul Mooney and a bunch comedians and celebs who probably party more than they read, slam America and anything else.

    The Supreme Court was on the list!! And what did they focus on?? Not the civil rights legislation they upheld in the 60's. Not Thurgood Marshall the first black justice. They went all the way back to DRED SCOTT!!! Come on!! It's just wrong to be black and think good things about your country on BET.

    One of the commentators said that rap music is one of the worst things to happen to black people.

    Rap music didn't "happen to" Black people.
    Black people invented it. :huh:

    Airplanes were not the best thing to "happen to" the Wright Brothers, the stable, steerable airplane was their best invention. :huh:
