No Consequences for Bill Maher


Last week HBO talk show host Bill Maher caused a firestorm after referring to himself as a house ni**er on Real Time with Bill Maher [click here if you missed that].

Bill will be back this week...

After issuing a light weight apology Bill Maher will back back this week with scheduled guest Ice Cube, who intends to confront Bill about his choice of words.

Remember, liberal whites have tuned out of the show ever since he had Milo on. His ratings are based on hate-watching right-wing people AND right-wing libertarians who enjoy his anti-religious rhetoric. I hope Black folks finally wake up and see who this man really is.

I know y'all didn't expect any consequences, right? He was just making sure the white supremacists knew he was their guy when he was interviewing Sen. Sasse.

I'm sick of the selected outrage. I was watching Bill show and I cracked the fuk up when his comedic wit kicked in. The conversation had nothing to do with blacks or slavery. Bill don't get a pass but we need to start checking ourselves. Most Blacks use that word daily and now got the rest of the world thinking it's ok to use.....NO other race refers to their people with derogatory callings......The usage is out of control and now we mad cuz other races picked it up.......

Check out Symone Sanders on Bill Maher on Friday. If y'all not up on her yet, put this sis on your radar. She is going places...

10:44 you must not know any other races intimately. White folks, Jewish people and Asians (who are the worst at it) talk about each other like dogs. Talk about selective outrage? You made some good points, but on that you're incorrect in your assessment.

Good, now move the fuck on! It was a joke, I get it but he can't refer to himself as that because he can't relate to the plight of those that were.

@10:51 I'm a New Yorker familiar with more races than you know. I never said other races don't talk about each other. I said they don't refer to themselves in a derogatory manner like Kite, Spic, Wasp, Guido, chink, dot head, etc. In other words, they respect their culture.

That's an interesting pic to use of bill imitating the urban culture :-/

11:02 I'm also a New Yorker (147th and St. Nick) and I'll say that while those terms are not used by those groups, they will work against each other by reporting rivals' businesses to the city, calling 311 about each other's buildings, etc.

Again, I understand part of what you're saying but the behavior I'm referring to is just as insidious and horrible as Black folks calling each other names.

Are you all just as angry when a Black man kill another Black man? I'm more angered by this

I'd like to see him tell a joke about jews using a racial slur, like ki ke and then see what the response would be esp from jews. Some black folk ain't worth your melanin.

Good. There shouldn't be any consequences for Maher. It was a joke (that I thought was funny). He apologized now move on.

Y'all need to take this outrage and direct it at the real racists in your local and state political offices that are doing real harm and not trying to get a comedian's show canceled because a joke upset you. Y'all worried about a white comedian saying Nigga (he didn't even say Nigger and yes there is a difference) when white men are in office are trying to turn the clock back on our asses.

Trump doesn't give two shits about the jews and yet he got the vote and became president!

LEts be clear. Other races have the same crab in barrel mentality BUT as much as they'll talk shit on their cousins. They will write a check or employ the same muthafukas they just talked shit on...

Slavery has fucked up the African in America experience; some of us don't even know where our ancestor's tribe derived from. we don't even look at each other as brothers and sisters but and enemies! it's sad!
