BET: Uncut was a television program that aired on BET. The music video program contained highly sexualized imagery. Because of its content, the show was rated TV-MA and accompanied by an on-air message stating that it is not suitable for children under the age of 17. The show aired on Wednesdays through Fridays at 3 a.m. EST. Though some of the videos were from well-known hip hop artists, most were from lesser-known artists, and the production value of the videos were often quite poor.
Its last episode aired on July 8, 2006 and was hosted by Jermaine Dupri.
While the videos are lightly censored, its content has been the focus of controversy. For example, MSNBC has reported that even some hip-hop artists such as Big Boi of Outkast thought the show was distasteful and could constitute soft porn.Likewise, individuals affiliated with historically black institutions such as Spelman College and Essence Magazine have publicly stated that the erotic imagery of the show falls outside of acceptable standards. Regardless, the show maintained a degree of popularity.

More than 500 Kansas City residents got some free help to keep their cars safe from thieves.
The Kansas City Police Department gave them The Club, a safety device that locks a vehicle’s steering wheel and usually costs about $50 at retail stores.
“I hope the community understands the Police Department wants to work with the community to impact the crime, and through the communications we were able to locate these devices and we wanted to get them in the public’s hands,” Schriever said.
If you’ve watched a 3D movie, You’ve probably taken your glasses off in the middle, only to see a double-vision mess caused by being able to perceive both video channels at the same time with both eyes. Watching a movie this way is likely even more frustrating than enduring the side-effects of 3D.
Obviously, I’d suggest not seeing movies in 3D if you are prone to these side-effects, but perhaps your group of friends just HAS to see this movie in 3D, or maybe your schedule makes it more convenient to see a 3D showing. Here, I’ll show you how to take two normal pairs of disposable RealD glasses and hack them so that your eyes only see one of the two video channels, effectively stripping the 3D effect from the big screen. The sad part: you still have to wear the stupid glasses.
The trouble began when Kilgore taped Tarpon Springs police officers arresting someone who had a controlled substance in his car. The two say an officer walked up and said the tape was evidence. Kilgore says he was told he two options: either surrender the tape or go to jail.
When Kilgore, who has taped officers making drug busts in Tampa, said he wasn’t comfortable turning the tape over without a warrant, he says the officer got agitated.
Kilgore says the officer kept saying turn it over and he kept saying he wasn’t going to and the officer then put on the cuffs.
Not only did the Tarpon Springs Police Department take the camera without a warrant and arrest Kilgore, but also when his friend, Tommy Frane, started taping the arrest with his cell phone, they confiscated that as well.
Gregg Thomas, who is one of the foremost First Amendment attorneys in the country, says it seems like a clear violation of civil rights.
Google’s algorithm changes seem to be yet another tool being used to direct the flow of information away from the alternative media to selected mainstream news sources. It compounds actions already taken by Google in their involvement in upending net neutrality in favor of mega-media machines; the attempt by Congress to crack down on copyright infringement by blacklisting domain names; and copyright extortionist lawyers suing over wording in links.
It’s obvious that the establishment will find a way to punish truth sites, either through technical penalization for re-posting material, reducing access speed, blogging taxes, lawsuits for copyright infringement, or by arbitrarily blacklisting the domain altogether.
