Is anyone watching this right now? It's on BET. Yes...B.E.T. :o
 
any examples. maybe the forming of BET for example?
 
^Poor Eddie Murphy

And LS is going to be pissed that his race hates Soul Glo
 
There's a repeat at 1am for those interested.

EDIT:

3am. Never mind. :(
 
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:

Coming to America was great, one of Eddie Murphy's best movies.
 
I don't have cable so I'm stuck watching all of my interesting non-mainstream media from PBS. :(

So you watch ABC, NBC, CBS, AND FOX among others?

:lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao: Bravo, Raybia, well said.: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.
 
Spoons, I hope you're not trying to downlight Slim. :(

You currently have the hottest avatar btw. Damn.
 
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:
