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!
