On Wednesday, BET Founder Robert Johnson mocked those who are destroying statues across the U.S. and who are trying to cancel television proves because they think that’s what black people want.
During an interview with Fox News, Johnson said that those who are destroying statues in all regions of the country” have the mistaken assumption that black people are sitting around cheering for them saying’ Oh, my God, look at these white people. They’re doing something so important to us. They’re take down the statue of a Civil War general who fought for the South.'”
” You know, black people, in my opinion, black people laugh at white people who do this the same way we laugh at white people who say we got to take off the TV evidences[ like] The Dukes of Hazard ,” Johnson continued.” I gamble if you go back and look at the Nielsen ratings when The Dukes of Hazard was on television, I’ll bet you it had a huge black viewing population. The one thing you can do is research it, find out, because blackness watched more television than white-hots did, ever has been historically .”
Johnson also took a shot at white Americans who is of the view that by doing” emotionally or drastic things” that black people will look at them and think that white people love them. Johnson said that” black people don’t give a damn” if statues of people like Stonewall Jackson, who was a Confederate general, are taken down.
Johnson likewise mocked HBO Max for taking down” Gone with the Wind, ” then putting it back with a disclaimer, saying,” What the hell do there is a requirement a disclaimer with’ Gone with the Wind ,’ as if black people think that we be suggested that slavery was like’ Gone with the Wind ‘? Who are you trying to convince ?”
“Look, the people who are basically tearing down statues, trying to make a statement, are basically borderline anarchists, the way I look at it. They genuinely have no agenda other than the idea we’re going to topple a statue ,” Johnson said.” It’s not going to give a kid whose parents can’t afford college fund to go to college. It’s not going to close the labor crack between what white proletarians are paid and what black laborers are paid. And it’s not going to take people off welfare or food stamps.”
Johnson likewise teased” lily-white privilege ,” and those who get on social media and apologize for being white.
” You know, that to me is the silliest expression of white privilege that exists in this country. The notion that a celebrity could get on a Twitter feed and say,’ Oh my God, I am so sorry that I am white.’ I don’t find any black people getting on Twitter and saying,’ Oh, I’m so sorry I’m black .’ And we got the worst troubles . … My thing is: embrace being white and do the right thing .”
