Sticks and stones and Bill Maher

Comedian Bill Maher apologized to his audience for using the "N" word in a recent episode of HBO's Real Time
after he used a racial epithet during an interview with Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb.

 Sasse — who was promoting his new book, The  Vanishing AmericanAdult — invited Maher to visit Nebraska after the two talked about how adults in California still dress up for Halloween. "We’d love to have you work in the fields with us,” the senator told the comic.

"Work in the fields?" Maher replied. "Senator, I am a house (N-word).

 The following week Maher had a show dedicated to apologizing for using the "N word."I did a bad thing," the host confessed to guest Michael Eric Dyson.
"For black folks, that word, I don't care who you are, it's caused pain. It doesn't matter that it was not said in malice, it caused pain and that's why I apologized."

Rapper and actor Ice Cube didn't let the host off as easily, jokingly telling him, "I knew you were gonna  mess up sooner or later. I love your show,

you got a great show, but you've been bucking up against that line a little bit. You've got a lot of black jokes."


Ice cube's lyrics are rampant with misogyny and homophobia. Hip hop culture is one of the greatest purveyors of gay hate. Is that okay? Can we make Ice cube go on an apology tour?

Funny how offended Ice Cube and other rap artists can get about the N word, which is bad of course--however in the same essence still refer to women as bitches, hoes and sluts. Maybe he and others should rethink what they say as well?

Like Ice Cube has never said something offensive or inappropriate? Give me a break. The guy built his career on it and he's lecturing Bill? Hate to say it but this is why Trump won. Take a lesson from the Donald as all liberals should, he doesn't bow to PC- BS.

Let me try and explain this; Jews can tell Jewish jokes, as a Jew I tell Jewish jokes-- but get offended when a gentile tells a Jewish joke.  My neighbor says as a woman, its the equivalent of calling your girlfriends bitches in an endearing manner but as soon as a man calls one of you a bitch, its on!  The N word is the same for black people, black people can say it,  but white people can't.

Maher has been a big proponent of black rights over the years. He made a mistake.

Use your words wisely, there are many hateful trolls wanting nothing more and gather joy from bringing people down. 

What ever happened to that expression my homies and I used as kids, "sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me. " 

Epilogue;
Maher always pushes the envelope, it's in his DNA
