Instead of blacklisted, we should call it white-outed. Because white people cover things up, so we can pretend it never happened. Huh? Huh? How about that? Damn I'm tricky. And also pretty weird too. I have lots of things going for me.

They lost Kenya Barris over this. I'd definitely like to see it.

The show has gone downhill since then and I've never watched any of the spin-offs.

Goes to show the networks kowtow to the lowest common denominator, dont want to offend the "good people on both sides."
Even klansmen watch sitcoms, though this one not so much I'd guess.
Stupidity at an epic level.
Unfortunate flipside of this ignorance is we'll probably never see Brooklyn Nine Nine ever again.

I want the D&D episode of Community back damm it. So dumb that it was pulled.

That's good.  I would be interested in seeing it.

While we're at it, Netflix should make that Community episode where Ken Jeong dresses like a dark elf that got axed a couple months ago available again.  I mean, I get why they did it, but there's room for context and nuance.

They pulled a sitcom episode for daring to address issues that the news and talk shows discussed around the clock and are still discussing. There's preschool shows that don't coddle their audiences that gingerly.

Good subby.
I Saw this but did not try to submit.
Nothing I came up with was worthy enough. You however make FARK proud.

It's a weird corp. mind-jedi move they do. Like Youtube and firearm related content.

Youtube doesn't up and do a press release that says "we're going to start cracking down on firearm content on our platform." they just go and do it, knowing that the pro-(content) people will go "HEY YOU JACKBOOTED ASSHOLE, I WANT MY CONTENT BACK" and the rest will just smirk and say "the f*ck? Get over it dude, their platform, their rules. Stupid gunhumpers."
Message being: "Hey, we're doing something about gun....stuff. IDK what this is, but they have a gun. So yeah, gunstuff. Stupid Gunhumpers."
The action taken is whatever allows them to say "hey, we did a thing about systemic black...stuff. Stupid racists."

Maybe it is just the corp version of icantyping. IDK.

Stupid corps.

It's almost as if there is an election coming up.

We watched it the other night. I liked the "Shady King" moniker. They pulled no punches in it.

Weirdly, I could have sworn that at the time, the reason given for pulling the episode was ABC's concerns about Kaepernick's stance. As if the entire episode was dedicated to that.
