Man Behind BET's 'Read a Book' Responds to Critics



Tell Me More, September 17, 2007 Nearly 500 protesters held a recent
rally outside the Washington, D.C. home of Debra Lee, chairperson of
cable network BET. The protesters expressed discontent with what they
called the "derogatory images of black men and women" portrayed by the
network. BET's most recent scrutiny stems from a controversial public
service announcement (PSA). The creator of the ad, Bomani "D'Mite"
Armah, responds to his critics.
