    Martin Luther King III and Andrew Young are founders of Bounce TV, a new over-the-air network. Most of the affilates air Bounce over a sub-digital channel.

    Bounce TV is Promoted as "the first 24/7 digital multicast broadcast network created exclusively for African Americans,". There slogan is "This is TV our way"

    I thought the USA was the melting pot -......

    Salty, tell that to Fox News, the GOP and the Tea Party and certain members on this BB. :laugh:

    On a more serious note, it might help if everyone in the country were given a free in depth DNA check so we would all know exactly where our ancestors came from. I think it would be fascinating ... don't know how much one costs. I figure a whole lot of us would be in for some surprises.

    That difference is that BET is only on cable
    Bounce is available on over the air TV


    I would suppose the majorty of Fox, and Tea party are White - but others are not excluded.

    SMH. The type of ignoring of the truth displayed by this post is why the network was probably started.

    White people are complaining about these new channels with majority minority lineups because they heard the talking points on talk radio which has freed them up to angrily question the same things.

    A United Negro College Fund? What would they do if we had a United White College Fund?

    NAACP? What would they do if we had a NAAWP?

    Miss Black America Pageant? What would they do if we had a Miss White America Pageant?

    BET? What would they do if we had a WET(White Entertainment Television)?

    We would have to be smoking crack to not admit that the majority of tv programming in the United States is geared towards appealing to the majority white population and thus that's who networks looking to make money are putting onscreen.

    It's silly to think that Blacks and Hispanics and Asians don't want to see programming that depicts their heritage. People want something to which they can relate and there are folks out there who see the need and realize that they cn also make a profit while filling that need.

    the ONLY thing that can and does bridge the racial divide is same thingthat bridges God and sinner one Jesus the saviour!

    And also think that a silent majority of black americans do NOT agree with liberal policies and agenda of 'civil rights" groups/leadership, but biased liberal media won't address that fact!

    So preach that instead of worrying about a tv network.

    You think that because you like to think that the "conservative white way" is the right way.:laugh:

    That silent majority surely voted for Obama en masse.

    Melting pot? Is that why we have four over the air channels in Spanish? And is that why we are starting to get commercials in Spanish on our English over the air channels? Is that why our OR Obama care website has a Spanish counter part? (Even though those looking at it think some of it was translated from English to Spanish with Google translate :)

    The majority will always think t's a melting pot as long as they are the majority in the pot.

    It's kinda like folks asking why black people need a Black History month if there isn't a White History month without considering that for 400 years practically every month in the education system has been White History.

    SO what they want to start a channel that appeals to Blacks. It just isn't a big deal.

    MANY of them now regret that action, as the BIG problem was that the conservative Christian Blacks, which would way outnumber liberal ones, chose to vore for a Black president, despite his agenda and policies being most ungodly of any president!

    IF he was a white candidate, they would not have voted for him nearly as much!

    THAT's a lie. Based upon the Gallup numbers, amongst Blacks form 2009-2013, his approval ratings have ranged from a high of 94% to a low of 84%. They are overwhelmingly fine with his actions. You and other white conservatives just want to convince yourselves that they are not because it helps you demonize him. Shame the devil and tell the truth.

    You're obviously very confused. Conservative Christian Blacks whatever their feelings about abortion or evolution or homosexuality, they still vote in overwhelming numbers for Democratic candidates.

    You're still wrong. Blacks have for a while overwhelmingly supported the democrat candidate because they've been brought up with parents who are Democrats.

    It obviously causes one to experience magical thinking as reality.
