10:22 If that's true, I bet she wishes this restructuring didn't make the news.

Deb was forced out said...


BET Network is just one big sex club.

No exaggeration at all. Work place Sexual activity from staff, executives, managers and celebrities runnith over. Professional boundaries are just gone whether straight or gay.

It a very sexualized environment, and BOOOOOOOOOOY DID DEB GET HERS and sum

There was an email sent out recently to all the staff about sexual harrassment, TOO LATE FOR THAT

The law suits will begin stacking up

Why do we 'black people" conduct business like this, it makes us look like a people who cant control our hormones who cant be professional
who cant be trusted in a corporate environment, who cant be given any real responsibility unless a white man is in charge to rule over the us like incompetent slaves

@12:20, BET has been owned by Viacom since the year 2000 so what are you talking about when it comes to "we" as Black people? lol If anything, Blacks that work under whites are copying the antics of their superiors/bosses. Don't try to demonize Black folks in the workplace because your white supervisors don't know how to act and some people follow to get a raise.

"White folks" heads are rolling off the chopping block everyday at their work places, because they can't control their hormones.

@1:00pm you said *BET has been owned by Viacom since the year 2000 so what are you talking about when it comes to "we" as Black people?*


Big Deb was still in charge as the president, Viacom just became the owner. The only thing that changed was who owns it.

Viacom didnt replace any of the senior leadership at BET offices who are all black


@12:00 you called me a racist white troll
I am not the racist troll you are obsessed with. I am African American

My comment was ment to be an honest discussion at how we present ourselves and conduct ourselves in a professional environment.

The BET office is a corporate office with nearly 100 black employees and its reputation is horrible.

The corruption and hyper sexual environment is embarrassing, we should be embarrassed and have a a honest discussion as to why we often conduct ourselves in this manner

@1:39, Viacom *did* replace most of the senior leadership, just not Debra Lee. I still contend that Debra and em were acting like their bosses.

@Reds4Real, So how do you explain the multiple white and Hispanic teachers who are caught having sex with their students annually? Look at the news, the vast majority of teacher/student relationships are *not* Black. This is not to say there are no Black teachers doing wrong because there definitely are some.

But stop trying to act like Black people have some type of moral issue. We do not. Weren't white people just trying to vote for a pedophile in Alabama and Black people voted against that? We know how to act way more then they do because most of us can't afford to lose our jobs.

This light bright damn near white bitch. BET use to stand for something back in the day. Now it's the white man's bed wench.

@2:18 Im not reds4real but I want to reply.

Blacks dont get alot of opportunity in general to shine corporate wise or in politics.

Remember we are the minority, when we get the chance we make alot of poor choices.No we are not alone, but we are talking about our race

If you look at the small number of black metropolis cities lets say of the top ten in america you see the same problems across the board. Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis, Chicago

Most predominate large black institutions have been rife with corruption. NAACP, United Negro College fund, Urban league. University presidents, black mayors, church leaders,and this whole prosperity gospel. All these leadership pillars rife with sex scandal after sex scandal and corruption and abuse of our own.

All I am saying is we ARE smarter than this!

We came from high morals and values and "my brothers keeper type neighborhoods".

At one point we would never allow our men to walk around with their underwear showing and butts poking out of their jeans. Our glorification of all things thug and ratchet and raunchy is way over the top and now a cultural fixture

Some where we lost our way, why, how

Its up to us to fix it, when?

Who taught you to judge ALL Black people by the worst among them? White men are being fired in droves because of sexual harassment or assault. Have you attributed THEIR behavior to being white? Will you or ANYONE hold them responsible for making ALL white people look bad?

It seems that in every industry there seems to be some sexual harassment scandals going on. Its fucked if thats the reason she is stepping out.
