      Los Angeles, CA

Mr. Johnson brokers a contract for the purchase of a new network based upon it being a Blacked and Operated Network. He acquired government monies, major advertisers and promoted it to the public as such, when in truth it is not. It is ran by its competitor, GMC TV and GMC TV executives, which are ALL white. Mr. Johnson made no attempt to even entertain procuring black business to work with him, manage or even participate with him in this endeavor. He advertised this deal as a "Change" and now we, the public are asking him to live up to his promise.

      This negatively affects certified minority companies obtaining business similar to white women owned businesses run by their white husbands as vice presidents.

      I cannot believe that Mr. Johnson would using government monies to finance the purchase of a network and then sign it over to an organization that did not have one minority senior level executive. Was he fronting as a minority to win a government contract and then receive kick-backs, I thought this was deemed illegal.

      Black owned and operated means just that.
