Soooooooo, BET Banned the "Hold Me Back" Video

Really? I'm not even a fan of this song but the fact that BET decided to ban it kinda rubs me the wrong way. BET now has a conscience about the way black folks are portrayed? Really though?

Considering the fact that they banned that Little Brother video way back when (which was completely ridiculous), I don't understand what the point is. This song is no different than Juvenile's "Ha" (shown below) and they surely did not ban that video (shot out to Mannie Fresh by the way). I don't get it. BET apparently is very selective as to when they care about how Blacks are portrayed and it makes no sense. I guess Ross is a clairvoyant of sorts when you consider these (BET) ninjas trying to hold him back.
