Discussions on race and racism have been a hot topic in the media for a long time now.
A topic that has frequented these debates is why white people feel that it’s okay to use the N word. We’ve seen examples of this across mainstream media in the UK, with the likes of Jeremy Clarkson allegedly saying it on Top Gear, although he vehemently denied it.
Most recently, Bill Maher, the legendary American talk show host, referred to himself in jest as a “House N****r”. This sparked mass outrage and many people called for him to resign, although he did apologise saying that he regretted his use of the word and it was “used in the banter of a live moment”.
In a recent appearance on the show Ice Cube took the opportunity to school Bill Maher on the error of his ways, curtly telling him that he sounds like a redneck trucker on occasion. Check the video for William’s dose of reali-tea.
