I like to temper my complaining and outrage with action so in case you’re not aware of the vast Bob Johnson conspiracy to make Black people look like fools some more here’s the gist:
Ion Media (white company) has “partnered” (though the terms are a secret) with Bob Johnson and Urban Television to petition the FCC to grant Ion an all-access pass to programming that would kick off all the smaller Black and OPC (other people of color) programmers including believe it or not, TV One. The scam is on people! It’s a bait and switch because Bob doesn’t own Ion and Urban would be granted access through the other company – maybe. Once the deal is made it would be too late to change the terms or nullify it.
Bob Johnson gets to be the Black face for a white company and he even had the nerve to get support from other Blacks to do it. Talk about selling yourself short….and selling each other out for pennies?!!! So the question is: do you want Bob Johnson’s second wave of Black bucks/video hos/idiocy staring not only at you – but being broadcast around the world as the ONLY IMAGE OF BLACKS – every day into perpetuity?
Speak now (actually write a letter and mail it pronto) or forever hold your peace…..
