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.

BET
A channel that purports to support black culture, all the while instilling the idiotic ideas that plague black culture like cancer.
Dude, after watching BET, I realized that I never have to get a real job because America is racist. It's much easier to just collect unemployment and stare at my "Free Mumia" poster because something bad happened to my ancestors somewhere, sometime.

Funny how blacks can have their own channel but if white people have White Entertainment Television it's marked as racist...
B.E.T. is an example of racism at work.

Network that feeds off African-American stereotypes. Doesn't play real black music like blues. Viacom is killing US Television
BET music is a joke. It would be a real shocker to see performers like Keb Mo', Robert Cray, or Corey Harris featured on that network. They probably never won't.

BET
A television channel watched primarily by Asian girls who wish they were black, in light of the fact that real black people watch VH1 and Comedy Central like everyone else.
Most people occasionally watch BET for the music videos.
