The Separate But Equal News Network

Photo from bio of then-Congressman J. C. Watts, who was a delegate to the 2003 Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Conference on Racism, Xenophobia and Discrimination.Image via Wikipedia "Why J.C. Watts' black television venture is a bad idea."

Latino Americans have channels, I don't hear any complaints, So it also makes sense that other ethnic groups would benefit from a Culturally Healthy channel focused on their issues. On the other hand, that the Republican Mr. Watts should lead the charge is at best suspect.

The Republicans, including Bush and the forty thieves, have a long track record of recruiting Cultural Traitors to their camp. The Cultural Traitor Judge Thomas comes to mind.

In the way of cultural commentary, I did not see anything about Classical African Civilization, Kemet (Ancient Egypt) on BET and I would not expect to see it on a Watts Republican Black TV channel.

My preliminary judgment, potential good idea, the leadership and his proximity to the Neocon crime family raise cultural red flags. It is more likely that a Republican Black channel would be used, like Fox News, for mega doses of Cultural Poisoning rather then Cultural Health.
