On Saturday, Sept 15th, the Enough Is Enough (EIE) campaign led by Rev Delman L Coates, Ph.D, demonstrated outside the home of Debra L Lee, the Chairman and CEO of Black Entertainment Television (BET). The protest was the first in series aimed at corporations that market negative stereotypes and images of blacks in the media. This protest is designed to hold others accountable for the negative images they sell to our community and our children. EIE‘s goal is to force companies to provide positive archetypes of blacks that are more representative of black families and values.

MG Says: Oh My! They are not playing, they have a rally scheduled again on Saturday, Sept 22, at the home of Debra Lee. In case you don’t know where she lives they have also posted the address of her residence in Washington DC on their website at enoughisenoughcampaign.com.
Going to her house is a bit extreme, but if she’s living a private life from public negativity then I guess. I wonder who’s next: Jay-Z, Diddy, 50-Cents. Rappers and CEOs beware, or better yet, run.
