The old Leslie Nielsson movie "Airplane" had a scene in Ebonics, with English subtitles.
Which they changed to be PC. The original had Barbara Billingsly (Mrs Cleaver) saying:
"N*gga don' wan' no hep', N*gga don't ge' no hep'"
On the DVD, it is:
"Sucka don' wan' no hep', Sucka don't ge' no hep'"
The idea of Mrs. Cleaver using the N-word is what gave the oomph to the scene! They ruined it!

(If you paid attention you'd be worried, too!)
