The Canadian Poker pro, Daniel Negreanu, is at the moment in very stormy weather after that he wrote some personal thoughts about the American TV-channel 'Black Entertainment Network" in his blog. Here are some parts of the blog post that have made so many people upset.
"While I was playing a mixed 400/800 game, listened to music, and watched BET (black entertainment), it suddenly hit me. How on [...] Read more » Daniel Negreanu accused of being a racist

That's just idiotic, american magazines should get a brain and think a little.. daniel said that the name "Black entertainment network" is a bit racisted because everyone would go on tilt when a white entertainment network would start broadcasting. He is absolutely right so everyone should stfu jou..
I don't know.. sometimes it feels that americans are a bit childish and make an elephant out of a fly for no reason. Let the man live and kick ass in poker..
Why would they criticize white anything when we know its pretty much white everything. And remember Hitler got his knowledge on how to kill jews when he seen what the royal asswipes and their rich followers was doing to all the First People of North and South America, not to mention all over the world. If North and South America will ever be the proper name to call these lands. These lands had names and a few Nations here already that were and are still sovereign, still Nations. They also had governance in place not yet matched by any system of gov't set up by these barbaric people from the so called old world. As far as I can see racism is and will always be alive and well where those Old World people are concerned. They have NO honour and since first contact they have never treated any First people of any lands world wide as their equal. F**K Daniel Negreanu if he was still poor his society would not give him a pot to piss in and he'd be frowned upon like all the poor white people of the world, by his own kind!.. They dont even respect each other much less anyone they consider minority..etc. Never forget there was a bigger holocaust on these great lands now called (fictitiously) North and South America. And fictitous govts set up. Remember also whites were from Clans as well and they had totems. Not ruled by tyrannical families like the queen/king and their hordes of asswipes. And they had older true religions from God. Not the ones dreamt up so they can kill, torture and murder other people who were the true owners of their territories. And in the Old World all white Clans had a territory on the lands of the Old World where barbaric people of their own kind took over because greed set in to them. Greed is an ancient "DISEASE" brought to all corners of the Earth by the barbaric kings/queens. Papal Bull was a Law (dreamt of - fictitious) that said it was okay to go and kill ANY First people of any lands, set forth by the so called vatican. They did that because the First peoples would not accept these newcomers b******t. Just as barbaric as any king/queen. The popes really are barbaric even to this day. Genocide is a crime towards humanity doesnt matter who does it and just because so called royalty does these crimes and their rich partners and followers did not and does not mean it was or will ever be okay.. And these great lands were not discovered, there was people there already and similiar land all over the world still belongs to the original inhabitants. Fictitiuos treaties forced upon all First people of those lands world wide is a crime. You never seen or heard of any of these First peoples land ashore in england and say that they discovered lands and started systematically/barbarically Genociding them and trying to force their cultures on them. They had no greed and shared everything and all were treated equal.
Yes racism is alive and well inside Negreanu and anyone who has beliefs from the Old world!.

It's true, If there were a W.E.T. station, blacks the world over could be justified in thinking it was racist. Why the double standard??? Simple. We white people do not have the strong community sense that blacks have developed. It is this sense that makes having a targeted TV station viable.
Well my christ i am absolutely flabbergasted by peoples attitudes. The reverse racism rubbish is a pathetic tired excuse for bad behaviour. White people who have no idea what it's like to be discriminated against because of the colour of their skin have no right to even discuss this issue. The mobos for gods sake yes really lots of black people in music but how many at the top by comparison? - a white tv channel? - i watch them all day everyday. GET A GRIP AND GET A LIFE.Don't talk about stuff you have not an ounce of understanding about. Most of these contributions are just knee jerk reactions to a white person being called a racist. Point of fact, i know not the man so his racist ideology i am not aware of BUT what he said was unnecessary and i believe just another statement to get him more coverage ie a little bit controversial. The rest of you need to go back to school and take a sociology class or two seeings as life seems to be teaching you nothing.
People calling him racist or silly are the racists! His comments are stating that he does need see any need for black and white to be separated...Sucks living in a world full of white media people wanting to put anything a white man says as racist..There goes freedom of speech. Cheers Mr Media.

Boy, having too much down-time can be bad for your opinions... eh? Guess that's why we like Daniel for his table skills and accute bad-beats on H.S. poker and not his pointless observations about T.V. That's why I play poker... t.v. sux. I mean who cares? I do disagree with Daniel about labeling a station, I say label them all, cuts out the guess work. Hope they go ahead and have a poker channel... that would be cool. L8R
