First, we can add Bill Maher to the growing number of liberals who are not happy with Obama’s handling of the BP oil spill. Maher however, decide to express his unhappiness by letting fly some racial stereotyping. This is how Maher thinks a black president should handle BP.
HBO's Bill Maher: "I thought when we elected a black president, we were going to get a black president. You know, this [BP oil spill] is where I want a real black president. I want him in a meeting with the BP CEOs, you know, where he lifts up his shirt where you can see the gun in his pants. That's -- (in black man voice) 'we've got a motherfu**ing problem here?' Shoot somebody in the foot."
Oh, so all black men are supposed to go around with guns in their pants threatening to cap people in the ass, is that it?
Chalk this up as more of that white liberal racism that the so-called "leaders of the black community" ignore or explain away with “nuance”. If a white conservative ever utter such a thing, these so-called "leaders" would be breaking out the torches and pitchforks. But since white liberal Bill Maher said it, all we will hear from them are crickets.
