 Thank you for your email.
I think the term you are referring to is “Success Segregation”.

racist comment

Last night's (November 8) Tavis Smiley show did it for me. I'll never watch it again. His guest was a lovely black actress. At one point, there was a brief clip from her latest movie in which she kisses her white lover passionately. After the clip, Tavis remarked with disdain, "You kissed a WHITE GUY???" Racism is inappropriate, no matter who were talking about. Tavis needs to apologize to the audience. We need a program host who is an advocate for humanity: Everyone in, no one out. Dr. Rousseau

Tavis Smiley & BB King
Posted: September 11, 2013 by Name Withheld
Program: Tavis Smiley
One of the best interviews I've ever seen -- most especially the interviewer was so excited and yes, prepared with interesting questions) to be interviewing the King of the Blues. A few years ago, I thought BB King was 'done.' Boy was I wrong! He's as good as ever and Tavis brought out lots of interesting conversational points. Well done.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email. We are glad you enjoyed the interview.
I saw BB King perform in Rome years ago. The only Italian he knew was “Gracias”, but  the audience loved him. They kept shouting “BeBe! BeBe!”
He is an awesome entertainer and a national treasure.
All the Best,
CPT12 Staff
