BILL MAHER (AP Photo) by Dr. Boyce Watkins (YourBlackWorld.com)–Comedian Bill Maher is the liberal that people love and hate at the same time. He has an opinion on nearly everything and has enough money that he doesn’t have to care what you think. Recently, Maher spoke about the racial controversy involving cooking queen Paula Deen. Unless you’ve been on vacation to Mars, you probably heard that Deen lost her show on the Food Network after admitting to the use of racial slurs in the past. Deen is a White woman born in Georgia in the 1940s, so we have to admit that her admitting that she’s used the n-word falls under the “no duh” category. Nearly everyone in Georgia, at that time, referred to Black people as n*ggers, we just have to accept that. But Maher went a step further, not only stating that Deen should possibly be given a pass for being a woman from the south born before the civil rights movement, but even asked if rap records should be banned because hip-hop artists also use the n-word.
