BET Channel Supports Peter Popoff Fraud?

You’ll have to excuse me if I sound angry or unforgiving in this post because I am. Recently, a dear woman I know was telling me about her friend who had gotten into some “weird” religion and was a self-proclaimed prophet. This person is a follower of Peter Popoff among other things and unfortunately refuses to use the Internet as it may allow for government intrusion (which leads to the one world government headed up by the Anti-Christ). If only she would trust the Internet for just twenty minutes she could review the video detailing how Peter Popoff was exposed as a fraud on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson waaaaay back in 1983.

I read further on Popoff  on Wikipedia because I thought he was a done deal–for Christ’s sake people, we’re in the information age, do a background check–and find that he has had a resurgence and is still pulling in major bucks. Part of his resurgence was due to BET (Black Entertainment Television) giving him time slots on their channel for his corrupt infomercials. BET is not the only culprit, there are others, but BET of all channels should be more responsible than to allow this white idiot to feed off the black gospel. In other words, I am playing the race card here and saying that BET aided and abetted a white man to defraud their black viewers, many of which cannot afford to throw away money in this economy. If you visit Popoff’s site he has a video on the left side that features black people amazed that their debts were mysteriously paid off. Could Popoff be more exploitative?

I tried to run searches if the NAACP had ever voiced their opinion on this issue but came up empty. You would think at least one major black voice would speak out–if you know of one, please comment.

I’m sure for those of you who regularly keep up on skepticism that this is old news, but for me it was really disheartening to hear–in 2011–that a faith healer is still suckering people. BET should be ashamed along with all the other channels selling Popoff airtime–but BET especially! I was hoping, since Wiki referred to news that was from 1998 up until 2007 that BET had stopped allowing Popoff airtime, but this is not the case as shown on the TV schedule below–which makes me even angrier at BET who, and this is coming from a “whiter-than-white” guy, is allowing their brethren to be taken for every penny to make a network buck. How traitorous is that? African Americans including Black churches should boycott BET for this.

I’m posting the YouTube video below which shows the original fraud of Peter Popoff back in the early eighties. We don’t need to keep allowing this faker to keep getting rich. If everyone with a blog or website would at create an article heading about “Popoff The Fake” or similar title so that they appear in the search engines next to Popoff’s site URL it may have a beneficial effect.  I’d also like to see pressure placed on BET so throw in “BET Supports Fraud” as well.

If you’re a black person reading this and you think I’m playing the race card too much here then good. You should be angry just from a human perspective that people like Popoff shouldn’t be allowed to do what they’re doing. BUT as a black voice, BET is going to listen to you versus me. I think you should be angry as hell at both Popoff and BET.

  1. The fact that this instinct cannot be quenched as easily as the others,
    makes it even more tempting. Someone with a balanced third eye chakra clearly knows where
    he or she is going. It is wise to become the observer as the Buddha suggests.

  6. Lets not forget that BET, which used to be Black owned, in no longer Black owned and has been owned by VIACOM since 2000. Debra Lee (CEO)work for VIACOM and do so with their best interests at heart not the Black community. BET doesn’t care about the Black community like they once did. I haven’t supported BET since the sell out. I now watch TV ONE and Aspire because these channels are sincerely concerned with the education and uplift of the Black community.
