Did The Boondocks Get Censored?

The much anticipated "Hunger Strike" episode of Aaron McGruder's Boondocks did not air and NO ONE is talking. From preview clips, the episode was wickedly and unmercifully critical of BET and it's management figureheads. I find it very interesting that The Boondocks can use the N word all day, make fun of other celebrities all night, but BET and it's minons couldn't take one minute of parody about themselves. Viacom has entirely too much power and influence in my book!

Now that is scary. BET had the nerve to shut someone down because its executives could not handle the truth about themselves. It wasn't a parody. It was truth. Truth hurts.

Wow. So much for free speech.

Some say it's too deep, and some sany strong...some say the truth hurts, but I say wrong!

I like the "share-cropper" terminology. Please excuse me if I bite off of you and start using the term.

SHUT BET DOWN.
