Hot Ghetto Mess is scheduled to premiere on BET on Wednesday, July 25,
Although it has not yet aired, the Charlie Murphy/Reggie Hudlin
(Friday) project has generated lots of media notice and opinion.
The title - Hot Ghetto Mess - arouses negative emotions. The
comments about the show on BET*s own website are overwhelmingly
negative. The website of the same name shows photos of young children
in situations that experts believe border on child abuse * such as
children with guns and beer cans in their mouths. BET says that the
television show is not a carbon copy of the website.
We want you to evaluate the show. We will send our responses of the
show to Debra Lee, President of BET. If the show has no redeeming
social value, sponsors will be notified.
Space is limited. Contact: Youth Council Advisor Sara Dawson at
301-502-5642 or Robin Williams at 202-256-5254
