Holler If You Hear Me

White House To Screen BET Documentary On Homophobia In Black Churches

Christianity has been a crutch of the black community for centuries now as it sheltered people from the troubles of the outside world and served as a community center. Homosexuality has been a part of humanity for much longer. However, the two have seem to conflict when brought together.

A BET documentary entitled “Holler If You Hear Me: Black and Gay In the Church” focused on the place, or lack thereof, of homosexuality specifically in black churches. The Clay Cane-produced documentary will be screened in the White House for Black History Month, according to MSNBC.

B. Scott loses lawsuit against BET

BET is well within its rights to request certain attire for its hosts according to a judge who dismissed B. Scott’s lawsuit against the network.

The transgender blogger, television personality and radio host filed a discrimination suit against the network, claiming it humiliated him during last year’s BET awards by forcing him to change into men’s clothing. 

Leaked emails from BET executive confirm B. Scott’s allegations of discrimination awards

A few months ago, we reported on B. Scott’s experience at last year’s BET Awards. The blogger and critic was hired by the network as a red carpet correspondent for the show.

After the event, Scott wrote a blog about network executives demanding a wardrobe change and then filed a lawsuit. 

Now, leaked emails suggest that Scott’s allegations have merit. Executives not only wanted a “more manly” B. Scott on the red carpet, but instructed the star on how to “spin” the PR disaster after news of Scott’s allegations became public.
