Yo, Is This Racist?

Yo, ask me if something is racist and I'll tell you. If it's absolutely necessary for you to know, I'm not white.

Anonymous asked: Can you explain the BET litmus test and what some variations or example responses are? We don't have BET here unless perhaps you pay lots of money for it on satelite or some shit.

Yo, ok, FINE.

BET stands for Black Entertainment Television, a cable television network in the United States of America. It basically exists to attempt to serve the entertainment market of Black Americans, which it does with varying degrees of success and positivity.

The BET Litmus Test For Racism is this: if you mention the existence of BET around a racist person, they will react with anger, or annoyance, or question the right of BET to exist when there is no equivalent White Entertainment Television.
