(I remember the "Barney Fag" incident--was it really two years ago?) 2. "American Tongues" did not stir up a fuss at all at Duke--and the scene with the word "nigger" uttered by a white man was not cut. Walt Wolfram told me (as I recall) that the word created quite a ruckus in some high schools, which led to an expurgated version of the film.
