I'm Biv Dick Black, the Over Poster.

Thought this was O&A topical.
A well-known comic was shown the door at a recent appearance before he even was able to finish his set. TMZ.com says Eddie Griffin was part of the entertainment at a "Black Enterprise" event over the weekend. When Griffin started into his routine laced with the "N-word," the magazine's owner and publisher Earl Graves took exception. Graves had Griffin's microphone cut off before taking the stage to address the crowd. He told the crowd, quote, "We will not allow our culture to go backwards. We will pay Mr. Griffin all that we owe him but we will not allow him to finish the show if that's the way he's going to talk."
