Courtesy of the Daily Caller, we find one of my favorite comedians (and seemingly nice guy), Wayne Brady giving his thoughts to the most panderingly pander-bear of all panderers, Bill Maher.
In 2010, Bill Maher said he wished President Barack Obama was less like Brady and more like Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight.
In response, Brady said that just because Maher likes black prostitutes, doesnâ€™t mean he understands the black experience, adding that he wouldnâ€™t appear on Maherâ€™s show because he would not be able to get the last word.
â€œSo, that means itâ€™s a diss to Obama to be called me because he wants a brother-brother, or what he perceives.
I would guess that Brady is an Obama supporter. His outrage appears to be because Maher needs Obama to be an authentic Black.
Maher falls into the liberal trap that sees “black people” instead of a gangsta, a business owner or an accountant. Black, to Maher and his ilk, is a something to be fetishized and pandered to. You know, support the Black folks with government programs, but God-forbid let them live in his neighborhood. Yeah, yeah, I know that Maher could boast having James Earle Jones and LaVar Burton living nearby, but Suge Knight? Or how about the “real” Hip-hop artists or the kids that live the lifestyle they endorse?
You’d think Bill would have had the good sense to watch this first.
Oh, and for the record, I love that 1) Brady has a nice-guy persona and 2) not above a little self-effacing humor. Also, he was the most talented member of the unfortunately short-lived Who’s Line is it Anyway?
