Don’t get things twisted. I’m a fan of Bill Maher and I’m an avid watcher of Real Time with Bill Maher. I’m watching it as I write this! I believe that Bill is an intelligent, funny man that is often dead on with his commentary. However, he consistently crosses a line when it comes to the black community. He often makes racial jokes at the expense of black people. Just in Feburary ago he was caught saying “nigga” when talking about actress Ruth Negga. How he got “nigga” from “negga” is beyond me. There’s a clear difference. We learned the difference between ‘i’ and ‘e’ back in grade school Bill!

“I don’t know for a fact that Jeff Session is a big fan of the movie ‘Loving,’ because he loves being able to talk about Ruth Negga – I just know it’s true.”

Now, he comes back saying, nigga once again during an interview with Republican Nebraska Junior Senator Ben Sasse. They were talking about how “immature” millennials are and how Halloween is no longer a children’s holiday. Bill says he should move to Nebraska and Ben says they’d love to have him as he can work in the fields with them. Bill then proceeds to say “Work in the fields? I’m a house nigga!” He then follows up by saying it was a joke. I’m not feeling this one Bill!

Often times white performers don’t feel the supposed pressure of a “politically correct” society, especially at the expense of black people. Bill should get heat for every racially insensitive thing that he utters during his shows and in his stand-up sets. I don’t know what’s up with Bill. I guess he feels like he has the black pass since he invites Killer Mike, Michael Eric Dyson, Joy Reid and Cornel West onto his shows. I guess he feels like he can say nigga because he dated Supa Head (Karrine Stephans). Well, you don’t Bill! You want to talk about slavery? Your relationship with Supa Head was akin to slavery. Check out what Supa Head said in a 2007 interview with Vibe about her relationship with Bill.

“Bill wants someone he can put down in an argument, tell you how ghetto you are, how big your butt is, and that you’re an idiot. That’s why you never see him with a white girl or an intellectual. I might as well have been a Muslim woman with my head wrapped, walking 10 paces behind my man. [But] I couldn’t be Bill Maher’s girlfriend’ anymore – not when I’m Karrine Steffans . . . best-selling author.”

Bill needs to loosen up on the insensitivity before he starts to become more like his nemesis Donald Trump. It seems to already have started.
