Are sites and networks like BET and migente.com racist?
I hear a lot of white people complain that if they were to start up their own TV network or website called “White Entertainment Television” or www.whitepeoplemeet.com then they would be considered racist. I hear many things like, “Why shouldn’t we have our own history month too?”
Honestly, I feel like a lot of people don’t understand why networks like BET (Black Entertainment Television) or asianavenue.com exists. I try to explain that because we are a minority in America we’re going to have things targeted towards us for a small group to share cultural values. I’m not saying whites can’t have their own but it is looked down upon because of the past with white groups formed because of supremacy such as the KKK. If whites lived in a country like Thailand and formed their own group of similar cultures such as Italians, Germans, or whatever then it’d be understandable because they are a minority.
I’m not black, but honestly I see most of the nit-picking with blacks about getting their own networks, dating sites, etc.
