There’s no question that “Empire” makes Wednesday nights must-see TV with it pushing the envelope to the extreme every week.

Terrence Howard says he wants to be a truthsayer on Empire.’’

Terrence Howard says he wants to be a truthsayer on Empire.’’

So what would happen if there was no envelope to push and they could get away with doing and saying anything? If it was up to Terrence Howard, that would be exactly what viewers got.

And then some since he would want his character Lucious Lyon to use the n-word on the show. From his interview with Entertainment Weekly, it’s safe to say that Howard is truly not a fan of holding back on what makes the show a center of conversation following each episode.

Keeping it real
“If we start getting silly, if we start playing to people’s fancies, then we don’t deserve to be where we are,” he said regarding the success of “Empire.” “It’s a big pressure because I want to be a truthsayer.

I want to raise the bar. I want to get rid of this f***ed up word called PC. I think it’s a gate for bigotry because as long as you’re politically correct you can say anything you want but feel some way different.”

“I’m mad that we don’t say nigger in the show,” Howard continued.

“Why is TV showing something different from the reality of the world? Why is there a thing called censorship that stops people from hearing everyday talk? We use nigger every day. It’s become part of a conversation — why aren’t we using it in the show?”

    Our overlords are obviously and intentionally destroying, weakening, and dividing the economy and the USA by punishing hard work with regulations and taxes and rewarding laziness with welfare while promoting illegal immigration, free trade, feminism, homosexuality, moral decay, drugs, wars, the minimum wage, political correctness, debt, gun control, and the nanny police state.

    Once the country is destroyed and the poor become too much of a burden on the rich, the elites will soon say Capitalism failed to justify turning the US into a hardcore Communist state. Americans will then be sent to concentration camps and starved and killed so the 1% can divide the wealth and land among themselves.

    Wake up. How else can you explain why the government is doing the opposite of every logical action to help the economy? Economics isn’t rocket science. If you want to boost the economy and nation, don’t allow millions of cheap illegal immigrants to flood the country, offshore jobs to 3rd world countries, punish hard work with taxes and regulations, and reward laziness with welfare.

    Sadly Americans won’t realize what is happening until it is too late.

    Never underestimate the inhumanity of man towards man. Greed has no bounds.
