Would a TV channel called "White Entertainment Television" be offensive?

I have noticed that there is a channel called "BET" which stands for "Black Entertainment Television" - I believe. It seems to me that quite a few people would be offended if I were to start a network called "White Entertainment Television".

Would WET be offensive?

Is BET offensive?

If yes to WET and no to BET - why the double standard?

Are minorities entitled to special treatment because of the wrongs that have been done in the past? Should we be striving for equality or trying to give minorities special allowances? Is being a minority grounds for special treatment? Should it be?
