BET - Tia

Now y'all know that we have never been quiet about how we feel about BET. However, I felt bad bad-mouthing the network when I was in Cali. My roommate worked for them and MANY a time I was entertained on BET's dime. But that doesn't excuse the fact that the station has done more than a few things that I feel...ummm...set the race back. The network helps perpetuate the stereotype. You know, girls on the pole, ballin' out of control, hyper-sexualized black folks. I'm convinced it's part of the reason that my white neighborhood from middle of nowhere America thought it was okay to ask me to back that thang up. (That story is here.) And I haven't watched 106 & Park since AJ and Free left.

This mess here though is funny. I see that I'm not the only person who has a problem with station.

FYI, this is whole episode, so if you're at work watch it on your lunch break...with headphones on.
