However, are they representative of 40% of black community in their image? Nope. What do they portray? Well, they do what MTV does and sprinkle in some ghettoness (think Jersey Shore). If you honestly think they're making money off acting ghetto you got something else coming. What are their comedy/reality shows about? Middle class black families, middle class black professionals, upper class black people. Then, they give you an hour of 106'n'Park (is that show still on?) The last time they had a show that even came close to showing black people in any real representative % of social/economic/cultural state was when they had late night reruns of Oz in the early 2000s.

    You think that would be a wildly accepted imagery within the church, or congregation? If so, you have NO understanding of religion at all.

    If more Nuns smoked a joint every now and again, maybe they'd go easy on whacking kids with rulers.

    Are... are we in a church or a congregation? I didn't know SD was even religious.

    The TV show Cops?

    By the 1970's the term redneck had turned into an offensive slang meaning bigoted, loutish and opposed to modern ways. It became a term to attack southern white conservatives.

    But since then Jeff Foxworthy came on the scenes with his redneck jokes and most southerners are once again proud to wear the mantle of redneck. Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy are redneck icons down here.
    Seems to build an even better foundation for my post...thanks.

    Nope, I'm stating that BET is only interested in representing about 8% of blacks and ignores about 50% of blacks unless they need to sell them the latest Nikes and fitteds.

    How is that any different from network TV? Are you saying those are 'the norm' for Americans? Even mainstream? @_@
