Witches' Brew: BET Tackles Anorexia

BET Tackles Anorexia

BET’s “106 and Park” co-host Rocsi is coming clean on her history with body image issues. Rocsi says she wanted to be skinny in high school to move up on the cheerleading squad, so she starved herself.

While obesity is a huge problem for African Americans and many of us couldn’t fathom starving ourselves… overweight or thin, these struggles can all be filed under body image issues in some way.

So, hats off to BET for tackling such a critical issue in our community. As much as we talk smack about BET around these parts, good for them for turning off the music and having a real conversation.
