  • "White Entertainment Television" is Unnecessary: We've had it for over half a century

    Since television programming began, the industry has been dominated by white Americans. After half a century, this is still true. BET came about as a way to make sure that African-American television directors, producers, writers, and actors had access to work. It also started so that African-American families could watch programming in which their race and culture is represented. Over fifty years later, television programming has become somewhat more ethnically diverse, but this growth is not adequate for an increasingly pluralistic and diverse society. White Americans, or Americans of European descent still dominate the media and to that end, no special network of "White Entertainment Television" is necessary: It's what we've had for nearly 60 years.
