White People Guess What? You Can Win a BET Award Too

All the magic happens in the comments.

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???!!!*

Stephanie Powell, I created this podcast for you.  Be sure to listen attentively.

Tammy Burgess, Onyx Truth 2

 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.

  1. Justin Timberlake — nominated for a BET Award
  2. Iggy Azalea — nominated for a BET Award (and she’s not even an American)
  3. Sam Smith — won a BET Award (another non American)
  4. America Ferrera — nominated for an NAACP Image Award (Latina)
  5. Sophia Vergara — nominated for an NAACP Image Award (another Latina)
  6. Dakota Fanning — nominated for an NAACP Image Award
  7. Sandra Bullock — nominated for an NAACP Image Award (doesn’t get any whiter than Sandra Bullock by the way)
  8. Angelina Jolie — nominated for multiple NAACP Image Awards
  9. Steven Spielberg — nominated for an NAACP Image Award
  10. George Lucas — nominated for an NAACP Image Award
  11. Carlos Santana — nominated for an NAACP Image Award
  12. Bono — nominated for an NAACP Image Award
  13. Al Gore — nominated for an NAACP Image Award (he’s whiter than Sandra Bullock)
  14. Emma Stone — nominated for an NAACP Image Award
  15. Bryce Dallas Howard — nominated for an NAACP Image Award
  16. Eminem — won a BET Award & was nominated 9 other times for a BET Award

I know it’s a shock to the system right now Tammy Burgess, but your reality is not that of ACTUAL REALITY.

Light skin dude with an opinion

    That list is about as long as the list of black Oscar winners lol. Anyone who uses the term “white people” in my book is a total racist. You lump everyone who isn’t the same color as you into one group no matter where they are actually from. That’s extremely racist. Have you seen the ad for the 2016 image awards? They’re basically selling the fact that the show is all about black people. Perhaps this whole #oscarssowhite bullshit was just to help boost their shitty ratings? The truth is you want to be included in every aspect of a “white person’s” life and still be able to exclude anyone who isn’t black from your “safe spaces”. How many black grammy winners have there been? Emmy winners? Golden Globes? SAG awards? Doesn’t matter because you need a piece of everything right? All tv is white tv. The fuck outta here with THAT bullshit. Half of all reality television is focused on hip hop culture. There are multiple shows that feature racially diverse casts and all black casts. Anytime something does not involve them, black people throw a damn fit. Never mind the fact that there are plenty of Asian, Latino, & LGBT nominees and winners. It’s not diverse in less you meet a quota of black people right? And you know all you have to do is throw a hissy fit and that white guilt crowd will bend to your will. The president is black. Several top figures in the government are black. Clearly equality is not your goal, you want to punish “white people” for wrongs they never committed and injustices you never suffered. Congratulations on becoming the new Klansmen. Hope you’re really fucking proud of yourselves. Why not prove you can do something on your own merit rather than whine and demand shit you don’t deserve? You can keep your exclusively black award shows but stop fucking crying because Will Smith didn’t receive his THIRD nomination. He’s a shitty actor and you know it.

      Lmao… white people whining. … gotta love it… the browning of America continues so continue to be very afraid

      • gary

        I don’t think he’s the butthurt one here.. clearly the black community is in an uproar (once again) because they feel they’re being mistreated. It’s this simple. The best man or woman wins. There’s no puppet master at the top making sure the blacks are being kept down lol. If you guys want to win more Oscars then have more black actors perform better. Whine at them, not white people. What makes you think white people aren’t discriminated against? You just discriminated against him lol. If you think there’s nothing a white person is excluded from you need to recheck your facts. There is literally over 1,000 scholarships available to blacks only. Affirmative action is all for you, and discriminates against whites. It literally is taking away the best man for the job to make things “fair” for the inferior who can’t compete. Contrary to your belief that a black person is somehow superior to a white. Such foolishness. Just look to your homelands countries to see your so called “superiority”.

          ” MAY THE BEST MAN OR WOMAN WIN” ITS THAT SIMPLE ,

    • theladymagic

      My, you are mighty butthurt about something that has not excluded you for any other reason than you have no talent.
      Any and everything that was made by minorities, has been inclusive of whites and other races.
      The Caucasian race cannot say the same thing. Which is why you believe that everyone is this is deceitful as you or as deceitful as your ancestry have been.
      You are among a group of whites that mistakenly believe everyone that is not you is is deceitful as you. When we keep telling you it is exactly not the same. One of the great fears among some whites, if the others are going to treat them the same way that they have treated them. Nobody has time for that nonsense. There is no such thing as reverse racism for white, stop saying that it is. You have never been discriminated against, are you strong enough to handle it if you if you were. Just the thought of it is tearing your little fragile mind part. Contrary to what has been done to us, black and pride have nothing to do with white hate. We actually don’t care enough about you to hate you. So rest your little butt hole.

      • Sara Phillips

        Well I see nominees but only 2 wins. But the Oscar’s has several black actors who won. Yeah ok that’s not racist at all. < sarcasm

    • odilia giles

      SO TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Anne Louise Cross Sanchez

      and just maybe, if there had been more Oscar worthy performances by people of color… they would have been nominated. But if we’re just going to nominate based on color, well, then I nominate my nieces and nephews. What did they perform in you ask? nothing, but they are half black and half Hispanic. So that alone should qualify them for an award. At least that’s what I’m understanding from this BS…. @fuqnickcannon you hit the nail on the head.

  • jb1907

    so 2 wins out of 16 nominations…about the same as the oscars…..

    • Brianna Elizabeth

      There has been 32 times that a black person won an Oscar out of 87 shows that has been aired. It dates back since the 1963s. They have been nominated 129 times since 1958 across the categories for an Oscar. Now let’s look into whites for just the BET awards shall we? Number win: 2 wins since BET started in 2001( Macklemore and Sam Smith) . Number of whites that were nominated: Only 9 ever. — There has never been a white actor or actress that has been nominated or won an BET award.

      • jb1907

        So 2% of Oscar winners have been black. There are what 24 categories per year, that is 1,740 chances. There are 20 BET categories and they have been doing it for 15 years. 2 winners, .667% of winners. But let’s be real, Hollywood is pretty white, always has been, so is “The Academy” going to have minority programs in sound editing and costume design? The BET categories are just as lame and fewer to get nominated in.

        • Brianna Elizabeth

          Why should they have minority programs when it is able to be won already by the minorities? BET doesn’t have a white category. Hollywood in the past have been white, sure, but you have you think about our history in that. But recently? It’s be an influx of minorities with movies, TV shows, etc and so forth. It’s process but all this black live matters and white privilege ordeal is kind of putting a wedge in the progression instead of making more of an improvement.

          • jb1907

            Because “hollywood” has admitted there aren’t enough black people in the industry and they will somehow make it possible for black people to get the skills necessary to get jobs and somehow win an oscar someday. What I want to know is, what category is it that a black actor/director got snubbed in? It’s not like Fin from Star Wars should have been nominated

  • CT

    Great point Einstein…….of the 80+% of white artists you managed to come up with 2 white winners……which oddly enough also seems to be the number of your brain cells that are still functioning.

  • jb1907

    and the BET awards are a combination of the grammys and the oscars. It has music and movie winners plus other nonsense categories.

  • Cece Lindblade

    so 2 wins is all you can come up with? Again with white being the predominate race here in America i would assume that they would like more movies with their race in it. Which is the same for any race enjoys watching movies they can relate too. So please stop with all the racial crap you are starting to make people racist that never were because we are sick of hearing about how unfair it is for you

    • Gil

      So me writing a column in response to comments that clearly are about race is me somehow instigating racial crap huh?

      Ok. Got it.

    • Gil

      You claim to be sick of it but yet found your way here…funny how that works considering I didn’t request for you to be here.

      But even still, if you are sick of hearing about it. Good. I’m doing my job correct.

  • Emeralds1111

    Why can’t everyone just STFU??? Who cares!! Do I get awards for doing my job?? No!!! Do I get paid what they all get paid?? No!! They are all entertainers, brown, black, white!!! It doesn’t matter!!! They all entertain us. I say we get rid of ALL the awards and call it a day!!!

  • Cruel1ntension

    BET Awards claims it celebrates blacks and minorities… Well Hispanics are minorities. Asians are minorities. Asians and Hispanics have less of a percentage of winners or nominees in both the Oscar’s & BET, you don’t see us whining “give me, give me”. There are more hispanics and asians than blacks, either cut the race card crap, or we’ll pull our race card out on you. This generation of everyone needs a gold star crap needs to go away. Double standard racist, everybody needs a gold star jacksasses.
