I completely agree with your conclusion. I have often had the discussion with people over BET, and why is it needed. I explain that it was created during a time when then larger networks would not play content from black performers. Now that it is a juggernaut of revenue generation, it's not going anywhere (Bob Johnson does not even own it anymore). Understanding of the history of these events would definitely help to encourage empathy...but one has to be willing to look up the history on their own or be open to the discussion.
