Bill Maher, the N-word and How He Betrayed Black Intellectuals

13 Juin 2017

"It doesn't matter that it wasn't said in malice if it brought back pain to people", Maher said. "You know, you've got a lot of black jokes".

Earlier this month, Maher referred to himself as a "house n*gga" when asked by Sen. "I'm not that big of an asshole". "I did a bad thing". "Sometimes, you sound like a redneck trucker".

"I'm accustomed to him and his comfort with using the word", Johnson said. "When I hear a white person say it, it feel like that knife stabbing you, even if they don't mean to".

Maher also called his word choice "just a mistake" and a "dumb interception".

Solanke, 19, will join Liverpool on July 1 after rejecting a new deal at Chelsea because of lack of first-team opportunities. The FC crew discuss the differing impacts of England's victory at the U-20 World Cup and Venezuela's run to the final.

Maher issued an apology shortly afterward, but invited Ice Cube on his show Friday night (June 9), as Cube has been an outspoken critic about the incident.

"I still think we need to get to the root of the psyche, because I think there are a lot of guys out there who cross the line because they [are] a little too familiar... or is guys who had a black girlfriend or two that made them some Kool-Aid now and then think they can cross the line, and they can't", the rapper expressed.

In 2001, Maher used the N-word repeatedly during a discussion on Politically Incorrect with actress Ann-Marie Johnson - and Johnson explained to TMZ that as a result of that discussion, she isn't surprised that he dropped the N-bomb again. And you can use it as a weapon or you can use it as a tool... "It's in the lexicon, everybody talk it, but it's our word now".
