Just because something was created for Black people doesn’t mean it is exclusive to only Black people. Seriously, let’s get real here. The level of ignorance from some in the dominant society is mind blowing at times. Some white people honestly want to experience what it feels like to be at a racial disadvantage just so they can use that “disadvantage” in an attempt to one-up a Black person. Get the fuck outta here with the bullshit already. My goodness.
Original thread these comments came from found HERE. The white tears just overfloweth thy cup intensely.
Tammy Burgess, exactly what is racist about Black folks having an award show for Black people…considering damn near all of television is predominately white? Hispanics have their own television shows & awards shows too due to the lack of representation in the white media. Are they racist too? Now if television & award shows were predominately Black & whites felt some type of way about it, then you would possibly have a point. But that’s just simply not the case. White people dominant every aspect about television. So much so that the channel these Black award shows are hosted on aren’t even owned by Black people. They are owned by white people. *say what???!!!*
Tammy Burgess, every channel on TV is white entertainment, too include BET since they are owned by Viacom. Sure BET in its inception was originally created for Black people since there was no other channel on television doing much to display Black representation beyond Black stereotypes perpetuated by white people. You mad tho? Why? White folks got the entire entertainment industry on lock. As far as BET not being for white people or as you say “That’s discriminating against white’s!!!”, here’s just a quick list I’ve put together for you Tammy to show you that here in America, there isn’t one single entity or institution that is exclusively for Black people. From schools, to fraternities, to sororities, to neighborhoods, to businesses, to award shows. You will not find one thing in this country where white people are excluded. Shit, most HBCUs & the NAACP were started by white people for crying out loud.
But here’s a quick list of white & Latin folks who have either been nominated or won a so-called award that was supposed to be only for us Blackies.
I know it’s a shock to the system right now Tammy Burgess, but your reality is not that of ACTUAL REALITY.
