    the "B" word, OK
    the "N" word, OK
    the "H" word, OK

    but when Kanye West says in "all fall down", "and the white man get paid off of all that", out come the censors.
    snip, snip, no "white man".

    guess they don't want the kids to know who is getting paid.

    FIGURES!!!!!

    Hey James, the truth hurts. That's exactly why they cut it out. They want the kids to know how to be materialistc and ignorant...not aware. That's not what BET is here for. They promote the stereotypical black image and nothing more. Great thread man. :peace:

    That is why I haven't watched BET in over 10 years. It should stand for Black Exploitation Television...I find nothing "entertaining" about BET!

    I caught that, too. The faster they buy up all the media corporations, the faster we move towards a police state. I think I stopped watching BET and all those white-owned stations a while ago. Even Telemundo and Univison have been completely sold-out. All of those stations have become white-owned and operated. They just simply don't represent us.

    Now, the United Nations are discussing measures to try and establish control over the internet. They say it is to control "spam" and "sexually-explicit material", but at this point I just don't believe anyone anymore. I'm so tired of their lies. They know we have more freedom at our fingertips, but they would just rather keep the information from us. Look here...

    I am starting to wonder about spyware, adware, so-called virus proptection programs, etc. Are we being watched? Of course we are.

    What terrible times we live in.
