The Black Movie Awards...

...were on TNT last night and I can't help but wondering what the reasoning is behind this.
Wasn't the goal of civil rights to promote equality? Isn't a show like this solidifying that there's a separation? Shouldn't actors just be actors --and not Black actors, white actors, Asian actors, etc? Doesn't this just provide fuel for those that would say "if there were a WHITE movie awards show the country would be up in arms"?

Until we remove the labels and the hyphens we will never be equal...
