*Walks to microphone*
*Waves to crowd*
We did it people!!!!!!!!!!! 52 weeks BET free!!!!!
*Crowd goes nuts*
We have a long way to go but I will enjoy this moment. Ever since my mother packed her things and brought me to Delaware from the filthy streets of the bronx….
*Gets choked up*
I’m sorry. I swore I wouldn’t get emotional.
Ever since my mother moved me to Delaware from the home of Cory Gunz i’ve been watching BET. BET was once a place filled with inspirational black faces.
BET wasn’t always the special education of television programming. Most 80′s babies depended on BET to guide us through our teenage years. That’s exacty what BET use to do. A piece of BET still lives in each and every 80′s baby in our country. BET is the reason our moms/grandmoms still have remains of our fake studios in their basement. Rap City and Joe Claire mad us do that.
I say all that to say this.
I don’t know where things went wrong. Was it Bow Wow? Was it AJ’s braids? Hell Date? Cita? Who knows.
What I do know is I couldn’t be a part of it anymore. So I took a stand exactly a year ago. I vowed to never give BET any of my precious time. A lot of people felt this was an impossible mission. This day is proof impossible is nothing.
*Crowd rises and applauds*
I’m not satisfied with just one year though. Nope. I’m aiming towards 100 years. We’ve made it this far…..now lets go further. BET doesn’t care about us…..
word to El Debarge performing with MMG
Stay blessed. Stay Humble. Stay away from BET.
*Walks away with cool bop*
*Crowd gives standing ovation*
