12 Years a Slave is airing on BET right now. Watching it, I noticed the word "" is not being censored. Yet, it is censored in every other instance it comes up in media. If it's on AMC, it's censored. If it's on The History Channel, it's censored. If the news pundits are talking about it, they're very cautious to say "the 'N' word" instead of ". Etc., etc. etc. So why does Black Entertainment Television feel it's ok to broadcast the word "" when every other media outlet avoids it? Edit: The ******s in my post is the word November Indigo Golf Golf Echo Romeo.
