Imagine if a famous white guy gave a speech using the word N_ GGER.  Or even worse, imagine if any white person used the word N_ GGER when addressing the first black president on national TV.  The world would come to an end — the media would call for the network who employed the white guy to fire him immediately.  But that’s not what happens when black TV host, Larry Wilmore spoke to President Obama last night at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

And to make matter worse, the President of the United States found it funny — he clapped and smiled and had no reservations about the use of racist, ghetto language uttered on live television.

The Wilmore speech and Obama’s reaction to it encapsulates the past 8 years.
