1. BET(Black Entertainment Television) did not air Coretta Scott King’s funeral on it’s station. BET claimed it wanted to offer viewers a different kind of experience by posting a live webcast on it’s website of the funeral where viewers could access it "at work, at home, traveling,[and] at school". Likewise, the four major networks; NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX all broadcast their own live webcasts on their respective websites. But these stations as well broadcast the funeral on television. C-SPAN and CNN also aired the funeral live.
This reason alone proves that BET is the epitome of trash on television. And not to equate the struggle of blacks with Coretta Scott King, but there would be no BET without her. BET felt that viewers would prefer to watch women shaking their rumps in music videos rather than some funeral for a beloved civil rights leader. 2. BET is not black entertainment television.

Anybody who knows me well, or well enough for that matter, knows I was going to write about this at some point...smh... Why
do Dark Skinned Black people hating on Light Skinned Black people? Without
Frederick Douglass, we would probably still be slaves. Without Jesse
Jackson, helping out MLK jr,, White people would probably ignored
him. Without Thurgood Marshall, Clarence Thomas wouldn't be Judge
now. Now we got Obama as President... and you know eventually we will
have a dark skinned African American President. Bush looked at Colin
Powell, made him Secretary of State, then gave Condi Rice a chance.
See... Dark Skinned Black people should be grateful that we Light
Skinned Black people are making their life easier...Agree?” - Yahoo

have grown to accept that many African-Americans don't have a genuine
desire to learn or embrace their history and heritage. I have become
accustom to one's “Blackness” in America being more so defined by
their clothes and vernacu…
I would like to present to Black Salvage readers the first regular segment to appear on the site, "Blog of the Month". The intent of these monthly pieces is quite simple really; to provide awareness of many of the great blogs and sites out there relevant to our focus. [Below is a sample of the type of pictures that appear on this month's "Blog of the Month].
The first "Black Salvage Blog of The Month" recipient is author of the thoughtfully racist web log "Fed Up", which is home to dozens of anti-black writings(here is a link, http://intolerant.wordpress.com). The author, who goes by the pen name "Intolerant" has been writing about his love of hating people of the African diaspora since November of 2005. Stories on the blog range from jokes to serious pieces on the all the supposed ills of black people in the author's opinion.
Before the comments questioning my reasoning for entertaining such a blog come in, let me first ask you t…
