Black Americans Watch the Most TV

Posted: March 31st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Black Americans Watch the Most TVSubmit Comment
According to a Nielsen report that breaks down viewing trends by ethnicity, black people watch much more television than an average American.

In November 2010, when the data was compiled, black people used their TVs an average of 7 hours, 12 minutes each day -- above the US average of 5 hours, 11 minutes. Asians watched TV the least, at just 3 hours and 14 minutes a day on average.

Black people used DVD players and video game consoles more than average, but whites were more likely to use DVR. Some 40% of white families own DVRs, which is higher than average.

NFL coverage across Fox, CBS and ESPN made the top 10 broadcast/cable program rankings nearly regardless of ethnicity except for Hispanics, who tuned in mostly to Spanish-language programming.

That's no surprise. They 'own' most of them.

They also 'own' the most bicycles.

This would help explain why Asias do best in school whereas blacks do the worst.

"Black Americans" well thats just racist. Why can't it be African Americans? But if there was "White Americans" it would be considered racist as hell.
minkowski writes:
on March 31st, 2011 at 9:37:16 PM

"Why can't it be African Americans?"

Because 99.9% of them haven't 'been' from Africa for about two centuries?

And if that's the case then I want a place on the next census that says German-Italian-Irish-American. Only fair.

No wonder Jersey Shore gets high ratings. They all about the drama and bullsh*t.

By the way, thanks a lot Nielson report. Now that you reported a FACT, now when whites or other non-blacks point out that black people watch a lot of tv, they have another reason to say we are just stereotyping and cry out racism.

Annnnnnndddddd Alex has to stir the racial sh*t pot again one more time before the month is over ... and Mink hit the nail on the head with his 2nd post .

Anyone find it funny they didnt cite the data for blacks owning DVRs ?

If they're all watching TV.

How come one of them is stealing my car right now?!

black people used their TVs an average of 7 hours, 12 minutes each day --- then the guards turn them off.

Asians watched TV the least --- because it f*cks up their eyes, then they take it out on whitey in traffic.

Hispanics, who tuned in mostly to Spanish-language programming. --- shocking.

And white people just sit around and bitch all day because a homie stole his TV!

i have an idea for another study: which race of Americans can get laid the least often? (HINT: it starts with "A" and ends with "sian")

That looks like Michael Jordan in the picture (NO... NOT because ALL blacks look alike... because he's BALD AND BLACK!). I'd believe he'd have a TV. He has $'s.

Black Americans Watch the Most TV because they jobless, nothing to do

This photo is far from typical for black americans watching tv. Here we see a bald black dude wearing a white shirt, sitting on a white sofa chair in front of a white flat screen tv entertainment system in front of a white wall. Assuming this photo came from Nielsen, is the Report trying to tell us something else here? The black people polled who are watching 7 hr 12 min of tv daily are probably on the opposite end of the spectrum compared to this hyper unreal photo. But I guess that image is too hurtful to show and would cause more racial stereotypes. As if this study doesn't already do that.
Ranger writes:
on April 1st, 2011 at 2:03:31 AM

Well, if he was wearing a black shirt in a black room... we wouldn't see the dude.

Unless he turned around and smiled (that his brother just made parole).

At least MOST of the black population that participate on this site are ignoring my (and others like mine) posts.

GOOD!

That's what anyone should do towards this. If I tried (and did) post similar stuff on here 2 years ago... it was a 500 post free-for-all.

Racism will never go away. Hoping it will if fine. Expecting it to is foolish. Ignoring it is the way to go (like a misbehaving kid).

Ranger writes:
on April 1st, 2011 at 12:02:04 PM

Yet I don't find this article 'racist' is WP is just reporting a study done by: THR, Nielsen

It seems to be just stating fact(s).

Oh wait, I'm sure you'll say, black people are poor and were slaves and blah blah blah, because that hackeneyed exegesis excuses everything.
