Black Entertainment Television. A channel, owned by Viacom, that caters to what white people think are the interests of African-Americans. It is neither evidence of affirmative action nor racism, since white people have the Country Music Television (CMT) channel (not to mention CNN, Golf and Food Networks, and all other channels, etc)and Hispanics have Univision and Telemundo. While BET is "for" African-Americans, it does not necessarily represent the views, ideas and interests of all African-Americans, just like CMT or Univision do not represent all whites and hispanics.
B.E.T. is television channel that focuses on what white people think are the interests of African-Americans.
