Reason #1,500,432 I hate B.E.T

I've been on vacation for the last two weeks and because of the blizzard in New York, I had a lot of time to watch mindless television. Some was fun and took my mind off all the shoveling that would need to be done, others not so much. During one of my marathon days I peeped this commercial on that God Awful B.E.T!

O_o, UGHHHH! Really B.E.T?! Besides the occasional show like "Black Girls rock" and breathing life back into The Game you are the #1 reason for Black people feeding into self hate, but you want to be all Pro-life.  And before any of you Pro-lifers waste your time hitting my comment button to tell me life is precious, and all that fun stuff STOP and watch the commercial again. The #1 cause of death in Black America is NOT legalized abortion and using this ignorance to try and scare people is disgraceful.

I haven't been a fan of b.e.t since the teen summit years and have sworn off most of their programming, but this commercial takes my dislike for them straight to hate. Maybe they should look into the coon-antics they perpetuate on a daily basis before they get into the pro-choice vs. pro-life war.  Ad revenues can't be this low. UGH

Guuurrrrlllll, I was thinking the same thing! This commercial unnerved me so. Even K was all uncomfortable after she saw it.

But I'm wondering if the BET ppl are supporting this campaign or merely airing a commercial? It's something Mari and I had a mini-debate over... thoughts?

That commercial disturbed the HELL out of me. It's sad that BET refuses to see the forest for the trees. SMH

To respond to Jaded's question..I think BET is probably just airing the commercial. One would think they'd have enough sense to be like 'nah playa, not over here'. SIGH
