Can We Trust BET With Our Black SuperHeroes

One of the things ConsciousInk has come together to do is promote artists who create positive images of underrepresented cultures, so if BET actually manages to avoid further demonizing and criminalizing people of color, we'll be happy about that and support it.
If they do not however, we hope it will serve as a wakeup call to the artists out there with mad skills and the opportunity to uplift the community with finished projects that the youth and adults alike can benefit from. Our arts should not be overseen by racist eyes (you see what Disney was going to do to the Black princess before there was an uproar over it)...

BET has decided to work on the revival of the Black Panther comic from the 1960's. Who knows, we may even get a Black actor playing a positive superhero,
in an eventual movie adaptation.

Thanks BlackSuperheroes for the intel.
