    (But in fairness to ‘em, they are still leaps ahead of the B.E.T. Awards—who are next year bestwoing their Lifetime Achievement Award on rapper Eve!)

    Oh, you have GOT to be kidding! >:( Thought I could loosen up on the BET boycott but nope. Who am I kidding - I'd wouldn't watch even if Jesus became CEO.

    No dis to Obba Babatunde -- but was Haywood Nelson unavailable to instead receive an honor on that night? Oh, NAACP, you've done it again!
