Enough is Enough Protests BET's Attempt to Gloss Over The Damage It Does To Black Images

Were you aware that the Enough is Enough campaign has been demonstrating since the middle of September by stationing themselves outside of BET's Debra Lee and Viacom's CEO Philippe Dauman?

They aren't playing and neither should we. We can all make a difference here by posting and giving as much publicity to the Enough is Enough campaign as we can within our means.

A Recent Post At Electronic Village Advises:

Hundreds have agreed to protest peacefully yet persuasively outside the Warner Theater where the BET Honors award show is scheduled to be taped on Saturday, January 12, 2008 @ 7:00 p.m. EDT. The protest rally starts at 6:00 p.m. with assemblies on the corners of 13th and E Street and 13th and F Street N.W.

Enough is Enough Campaign supporters regard the BET Honors as a red herring – an attempt to mask the offensive musical content that is being aired on BET Networks by spotlighting the achievements of prominent African Americans.

Thanks, Electronic Village.

Keep getting at BET.

I'm going to have to get on this when I get some space to post it.

This has been a busy week with all the political developments plus my expose posts I already had plan. I haven't even gotten to a music post I'd planned to put up monday, and it doesn't look like I'll have room for it today.
