So I was watching television, the one in my living room on the entertainment center next to the window with a view of the house directly across the street from me, and I am flipping through the channels and I realize that every god forsaken show on TV has a white guy, a black guy, and an asian guy all laughing together and getting along. This couldn't be farther from the truth in real life, where the 3 groups mentioned above tend to stick together.

I also recall them changing the 3 white guys raising the flag in the WTC wreckage to a white guy a black guy and an asian guy. That is bullshit, just because the 3 white guys didn't realize they might offend someone by raising the flag by themselves they change it.

This is fucking absurd, the people that would offended by this are more racist than the people that fail to include them to begin with. Take BET for example, there is not a single white person on that station, ever. But because we "opress" them they have the right to exclude us from their channel, however if we did that it would be racist.

That went sort of OT sorry. Anyways I fucking hate political correctness.

I don't hate political correctness, I think it's a good thing most of the time.

However, in the cases that you mentioned I think that is taking it too far.

If you have to stop and think about what race a person is before including them (such with the TV show and the World Trade Center thing) you are the one being a racist since you are including/excluding solely because of race, not that persons characteristics.

Are white people actually excluded? Or is it just the Black Entertainment Channel?

i said at HG once 'political corectness can suck my dick'. i got yelled at for it, but oh fucking well.

i also fucking hate it. its everywhere too, god damn do i hate it. it makes everything even more absurd, everything has to have the token black guy and this and that. the all womens and all black schools, thats fine, but an all white school would probably be burned to the ground. i could probably go on and on, but im kinda exhausted and dont feel like formulating more right now. ill be back, mark my words, ill be back.

I don't know, I don't think there's anything wrong with political correctness in the first example you mentioned... the media has such a large sway over people's thoughts that it really can't hurt. If they want to promote harmony between the races, good for them, right? Of course, their motives aren't generally to do that, but just to make money, so pfft. If you look at it idealistically it's all good.

The second example is pretty stupid, though. In fiction, it's one thing, but if they're rewriting history then it's kind of crossing a line. That's when it gets petty and stupid, I'll agree with you there.

and what do you think would happen if someone came up with a 'white entertainment channel'?

PS: this may come as a surprise to some people, but black folk arent the only ones who like or are "entertained" by rap and big bootied women shaking their stuff at the camera. i spent 2 hours last night watching a bunch of hip hop videos from the 80s on MTV 2 infact, and have my fair share of rap CD's. those black people sure are entertaining.

It probably wouldn't be liked. I didn't say I agreed with the BET or liked the idea of it or anything, I was just asking if they have actually told white people they couldn't be on there.

I don't see why they need to make the big deal of their race. It's just a TV channel.

That's exactly what I was talking about. It's ok if the Asian girl has a funny part, but if she is just there to not piss people off then that's what pisses me off.

They might as well be since you never see them on there anyways.

See that's what pisses me off though, if we made a WET (White entertainment television) it would be racist. But it is perfextly ok for them to have it. In that case they would be more racist then we ever were.

Quoted from boutitben:
I don't see why they need to make the big deal of their race. It's just a TV channel.


thats one of the great ironies of it. same as with the whole im not black, im not white, im not asian, i belong to the 'human race' bullshit they try and pull off. and then everyone goes and celebrates multi cultural days and months and shit to try and bring us all together in unity by celebraiting our differances...its a complete contridiction. they want us to forget that we've got different color skin, but then in their efforts to do so all they do is force us to see it and drive it down our throats.

when i watched TV id watch it sometimes, i happen to like some rap, mostly before it all turned into 'look at my money and cars and bitches'

The only time I could see a need for the BET would have been a long time ago, back when black people were still segregated and discriminated against. I'm unaware of how they were treated when regarding TV shoes, probably not well, but I don't know.

However, I'd say black people are now much better off. There are TV shows that center around black families (Family Matters with Steve Urkel comes to mind) and of course there are others. You see black people all of the time in movies and such.

White people may still be found more often, but, Christ, that's because there are more white people in this country.

Another point of political correctness I dislike is that they changed "Mailman" to "Mailperson" or "Lettercarrier" as to not offend women. I don't see how someone saying "mailman" could somehow imply that the USPS isn't an equal oppertunity employer.

The station also enforces what the typical black person should grow up to be and how to act, which we all know is not civilized.

salamando is right, i should have thought to mention it too. they are all potraying black people as the ghetto, gang banging, blunt smoking, ebonics speaking hicks of south LA. pretty much enforcing the all the great sterotypes, much like st patricks day does for the irish.

I've seen it spelled "womyn" a lot... it's so annoying! I don't understand it... what's it supposed to symbolize? I guess there's some significance or something, but it's not like "woman" is an offensive term to begin with. Why change it? Why? WHY?

thats pathetic...it really is

feminism is generally a good thing, but some feminists want to get revenge on all the men in the world because women have been opressed for so long, rather than just making everything equal
