If you choose to boycott BET, then that's strictly up to you. Personally, I'm not a fan of BET for various reasons. I congratulate those who take time to celebrate someone else's history all year round. However, until we are more aware of the systems that work against true integration, then we have no business flushing Black History Month down the toilet, much the way I wouldn't suggest flushing down Latino History Month, St. Patrick's Day, or Women's History Month. Everyone has had a stake in this country, and that stake is not fully recognized except in back pats and head nods.
Ironically enough, the very people who disregard observing other people's cultures always point to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as an example of absolute integration. Yet, he even said, "Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and when they fail in this purpose, they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress." What, then, are we asking ourselves when we turn a blind eye to the continued injustices of the day and perpetrate this colorblind (as opposed to color-conscious) society? Will we ignore the atrocities of Jena 6 and ignore the racial component of it all? Will we simply call Elvira Arrelano an illegal immigrant when so many of us associate "illegal immigrant" with a Mexican face? It makes me wonder.
Then again, everyone has their own opinion, just like everyone has a sphincter. My problem is not with the way you use it, but with the mess you leave after you use it.
