Watch Bill Maher Defend Using The N-Word To A Black Woman In 2001
Huffington Post - 9 months
If you think last week’s episode of “Real Time” was the first time Bill Maher said “n***a” on TV, it isn’t. An August 2001 clip from Maher’s old show “Politically Incorrect” has resurfaced online, and it shows the comedian insisting that white people have the right to use the slur.  In the clip, posted in a tweet below, Maher is in debate with comedian David Spade, activist Guy Aoki, comedian Sarah Silverman and African-American actress Anne-Marie Johnson. According to Salon, the panel was gathered to discuss a then-recent controversy in which Silverman had used an Asian slur during a comedy routine.  Maher used the debate as an opportunity to suggest that the word “n***a” should no longer be considered offensive. When questioned by Johnson, Maher argued that because black people use the word, white people should be able to use it, too.  “Every African-American person uses that word night and day.
