    President Trump is up 3 percent! I refer to the betting odds. Gamblers (mostly in Europe because political bets are legal there) now give the president a 53 percent chance of finishing his first term. That's it -- they barely think he'll complete four years. This must seem wrong to Trump supporters, but when Trump won the presidency, the odds were significantly lower -- many people thought he wouldn't finish one term. "He can't take the criticism! He'll get mad and quit! He'll get bored and quit! He'll return to making money! He'll be impeached! Assassinated! He'll get so angry...

    Eminem didn’t hold back in his cypher -- called "The Storm (Freestyle)" -- against Trump and his supporters, at BET’s Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday (Oct. 10). He protested the “racist 94-year-old” president by cutting deep into issues like Islamophobia, white supremacy and racism against Black Lives Matter protesters. “Says he wants to lower our taxes,” he raps in one line. “Then who's gonna pay for his extravagant trips / Back and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions?” He points at the hypocrisy of Trump’s pro-military rhetoric by touching on his past comments criticizing John...

    New rule from our friends on the authoritarian left: If you're going to publicly support President Trump, you better be careful where you do it. Only in the comfort of your home, says the Black Entertainment Television website. "In light of recent events," it intoned on Monday, "Donald Trump's 'Make America Great Again' hats have become taboo to wear in public." The BET website was writing about an incident last Saturday in which two white teens from Pennsylvania in town for a field trip went into the Howard University cafeteria for lunch wearing pro-Trump paraphernalia. Both had MAGA hats they...

    Airing on June 25, the 2017 BET Awards were hosted by comedienne Leslie Jones and mostly featured live musical performances. Otherwise, the focus of the awards was a message of encouraging Black Lives Matter social justice warriors, although, without the long preachy political sermons delivered in many other awards shows. References to people killed in police-involved shootings - including the acquittal last week of the officer who shot Philando Castile - were present throughout. Four members of the cast of an upcoming movie titled Detroit, about the 1967 riots in that city, came out to present the Centric Award to...

    Democratic media mogul Bob Johnson told CNBC on Monday that fellow African-Americans should give Donald Trump "the benefit of the doubt," and hope common ground can be reached with the incoming Republican administration about issues facing the black community. The BET founder — who met with Trump on Sunday at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey — described the sit-down as a "great chat" about "business solutions to social problems." During the campaign, Trump made the case to African-American voters that Democrats let them down, and argued repeatedly "what do you have to lose" by voting for...

    On Friday night, BET and MTV convened an hour-long, commercial-free townhall on police-involved shootings of African-Americans with only distant mentions of what transpired the night before in Dallas but focused heavily on denigrating law enforcement as hunters and “a gang” meant to terrorize blacks from America’s founding, the need for white people to recognize privilege, and lobby for the defunding of police nationwide. Aside from a brief discussion with a former New York City detective, the so-called “historic” conversation was anything but in its one-sided, anti-police rhetoric that even went as far as to suggest the media at large weren’t...

    Just as you would expect, the 2016 BET (Black Entertainment Television) Awards were full of Black Lives Matter references and reminders to register to vote and then get out the vote for Hillary Clinton. After the opening of the award ceremony featured Beyoncé and her back-up dancers marching into the auditorium to a Martin Luther King, Jr. speech, actor and producer Terence J went on to say, “Your vote is your voice,” and reminded everyone to register and “vote smart” as he introduced the show hosts, ABC’s Blackish stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross. Isn’t it interesting that these...

    Martha Stewart says Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” pales in comparison to “the real thing.” In an interview with comedian and talk show host Chelsea Handler, Stewart spoke fondly of her time in women's federal prison. "When you live through something like 'Orange is the New Black' ... the real characters are better," said Stewart, who served five months behind bars in 2004 to 2005 for insider trading. She conceded that she does not watch the Netflix series, premiering its fourth season on June 17. “Too close to home?” Handler asked. “Well, no. It’s not as good as the...

    Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he was "sad" that no black actors were nominated for an Academy Award, but noted that white people are not nominated for any Black Entertainment Television Awards. "I think it's a tough situation. I think it's really sad," Trump said on "Fox and Friends" when asked about the lack of black nominees. He then mentioned Fox News contributor Stacey Dash's earlier comments on the show, where she said, "If we don't want segregation then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the [NAACP] Image Awards, where you...

    The African-American actress went so far as to call for the abolition of Black History Month and any other institution celebrating racial differences — even as the uproar over the lack of diversity among this year’s Oscar nominees is building. “We have to make up our minds,” the actress-turned-conservative-pundit said on Wednesday’s “Fox & Friends.” “Either we want to have segregation or integration. And if we don't want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards where you're only awarded if you're black.

So, there the whites don’t get any nominations.” Donald Trump has criticised the growing campaign to boycott this year's Oscars over the Academy's failure to nominate black actors, saying that African Americans have been nominated previously – and noting that they have their own awards.

    RALEIGH, NC-- It was suppose to be fun, but some say a party among North Carolina State Students might have crossed the line. The theme, Country Music Television versus Black Entertainment Television. Students were encouraged to dress in costumes that imitated both cultures. Some costumes found offensive by students played into the negative stereotypes of what is believed to be black culture. The party was held off campus last Thursday, on the heels of the university's "Diversity Week".

    No one was harmed during a shooting outside the Supper Club early Monday morning. But one person was killed and four were injured at the Monalizza Restaurant early Sunday morning, and one was stabbed at Lure Friday night. Black Entertainment Television says the Los Angeles parties were not officially associated with the ceremony hosted by Chris Rock Sunday night. The Black Entertainment Television Awards is distancing itself from the violence that erupted at several parties for people attending the ceremony Sunday night. The events were not sanctioned by BET. The most recent shooting reportedly broke out about 2:30 a.m. Monday...
