I really fucking dislike Bill Maher, but that was from way before this n-word blowup. His apology was fine but I still think it's funny how he could barely conceal his irritation at being lectured at by Ice Cube.

I think he's a smug douchebag, but still, his show is petty good, and I appreciate that he's willing to mix it up with everyone.

You guys realize that you're just giving the enemy a very powerful tool when you make something verboten, right?

Blatant censorship of this kind is the equivalent of crying like a whiny bitch when somone picks on you in the schoolyard, instead of challenging them and turning the tables like an intelligent person would, or even better, not letting it bother you at all.

It makes perfect sense to me, but maybe I'm not smoking what you guys (and Ice Cube) are smoking.

Well fuckhead, explain to me how you strike a word from the English language? How would you go about doing that? Should I start a campaign to have it removed officially? I guess I have to gather every individual person that I've ever spoken to just to explain to them that the word no longer exists and that we will now refer to each other as "Mochacho". It will only take a minute, but I think it might work.

I dunno. Bill Maher + "come work with us in the fields" = n-word joke seems pretty natural, given his career. Looked like an impulse to me. I really like Maher, but he deserved the backlash, and it was fun to see him so uncomfortable.

Has anyone brought out the fact that Ice Cube has made a ton of money performing blatantly antisemitic and anti-Asian songs?
