The clip puts emphasis on the fact that former slaves were released like animals who had been kept in captivity. Past racism aside, those poor folk did not know how to survive on their own because they had been denied the knowledge for generations. This is not emphasized enough, and 'good' white folk have to understand the role they play.

Why cant the companies just give channels a la carte?

I dont see any reason why I should be forced to pay for Viacom's trash when it wasnt what I signed up for in the first place.

Im a 30 year old straight man.  :-X What the hell am I gonna do with VH1? MTV?

I use this service like every other straight man. :-X I want to watch my hometown team(Chelsea) and league(premier league soccer) and I want to watch regional sports broadcasts(Atlanta United, Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Braves and Falcons) Everything else is surplus to requirements.

Carton Network so I can watch some cartoons while I work? ???:-X Fine

PBS is nice, but thats free to air for most people. And I live in Atlanta why are they giving me Access to Alabama Public television? I hate APT. They show crappy gospel shows all the time and they were the ONLY public broadcasting station in the country to ban Arthur for having a gay marriage episode. Awful station

The odd CN/tyt/msnbc so I can see debates during election years? OK.

Nickelodeon? Who cares? Kids dont even watch Nickelodeon now. They havent had a good show since Victorious, and that was nearly a decade ago.

Lets get real the only good thing about this Viacom package is Comedy Central, and thats just because I might be able to catch south park and put it on the DVR. Outside of that....who cares.

Lets get real if I was able to buy channels this is what I would buy

The local staples:
ABC
FOX
NBC(only for sunday night football. I dont watch anything else on there)
CBS
GPB(Georgia Public Broadcasting state wide)
PBA30(Atlanta PBS affiliate)


And for Cable

NBCSN
Fox Sports 1 and 2
ESPN 1,2,U
NBA TV
Tennis Channel
Cartoon Network
Disney
Disney XD
CNN
TYT
BBC America


rest of this shit can go
:tiptoe:

What's wrong Que? I'm sure once he realize  Rupaul's Drag Race is not on his list, he will add it.  :nod:

Why cant the companies just give channels a la carte?

Because if they went al la carte, only the very popular channels would survive. The average people only watches 10 stations regularly on their cable service.  The media companies use their desirable channels as an anchor to get their less popular stuff on tv. In Disney's case, if you want ESPN, you got to take the Family Channel along with Pat Robinson and his 700 Club.

are you saying Cable ain’t that bad? :snicker

Yeap.  :nod: I guess the cable companies already knew what the streaming services had to learn; content is expensive and you can't afford to give it away.

Neymar, the current model streaming services are using is not sustainable.  None of them are profitable with the rates they are charging customers. They have been raising prices once or twice a year, to bring them more inline with cable companies. It got so bad with me and DirectTV/ATTNow, they actually did not care if I dropped the services because in their words, I was getting the inroductory package bundle, which costs new customers a lot more. Actually  they had two big increases last year to force old customers to quit. In the words of their CEO,  fewer customers paying a higher rate, is more attractive than providing a services to many at a loss.  So basically, calling them to retain  you is a waste of time. They ain't offering no deals to keep you. The deals are only to sign you up.

Universal is giving Peacock away for free. Disney+ is successful on one hand, but now that Corvid 19 has hurt their movie, theme park, ESPN, and vacation business, the fact that Disney+ is a money loser has become an issue.  AppleTV+ is struggling but Apple don't need it to make money. It is simply another option for their customers.

::) Like they cannot buy more than 1 cake

There you go again flaunting that Morehouse degree.  :nod:

He can be a bit uppity at times Cap :lol:

I know right, all I wanted was one cake enough for my 4th July party. But JT got me up in Costco doing algebra. "Ok, if this round cake feeds 8, and costs $8.99, and I have 30 people coming, but they only gave me $20 for a Costco sheet cake, how many of these here round cake will I need to buy and stay with in my budget? Also consider black folk insist on there being leftovers enough for them to pack up and take home? Ok, if this was a mathematical equation, what would X be?" X being the amount of money, past $20 I would have to come out of my pocket with to avoid the riot that happened at Aunt Jeanie's house when she  could not do algebra and compensated for Costco's desire to save humanity, by simply cutting a round cake razor thin."   :brickwall:

:lol:

SOME people just have no self control.  Unfortunately we are learning there are millions of them

Sorry but i have to call it for what it is. These are white folk in the bars and on the beaches.  ::) Then again, black folk are not much better with the big house parties.

Costo has stopped selling sheet cakes to prevent stupid Americans from partying.  :no: Instead they are encouraging customers to buy round cakes, which serves 8 people.

My aunt Jeanie could serve 25, and on a good day more, from one 8 inch round cake.

I won't be going over to Aunt Jeanie's for cake. I will be ready to fight her when she  steps up with a cheese slice size piece of cake.  >:(

Nothing to see here. Trump simply threw up a new controversy to divert you away from the real story, which is Russia.  It's 11 pm and the media has moved away from this and are now back on Russia. Didn't work Trump.  :no:

Did not know who did the song but loved it when I was young. Have not heard it in years. He lived a long life.

I figured that slot would become hers. If not her, that map/numbers dude.
