Black Entertainment Television Attacks MeFriday, July 31, 2009
This article appeared on the Black Entertainment Television (BET) website on Wednesday night. The piece is so lame I don’t know how it passes as news. The topic is interesting and engaging, so I am not sure how the writer managed to make it so boring.
There’s one thing I want to point out, and that is the dishonest quote from the piece that both changes my punctuation (to something that is wrong) and capitalizes the word “White” when referring to me. The latter technique makes a very obvious point. The story also gets my name wrong. The quote paragraph appears as follows:
“Well, true, this billboard only appears in the city and not the ‘burbs,” writes White blogger Karen de Coster. “How dare we be honest and admit that White people generally don’t like malt liquor and, thus, they are not a target market for the product.”
So I sat down and penned this response that is up on Taki’s Magazine today.
