At a campaign event, Hillary Clinton said, "Thanks for the endorsement, Bill. It took you long enough.” “Sorry, Hillary,” Mr. de Blasio said. “I was running on C.P. time,” a reference to the stereotype “Colored People Time.

Colored is an acceptable name for African Americans along with Negro, but the way that he said it "Colored people time" is racist.

Does DiBlasio think it's ok because he's married to a black woman? Not appropriate.

Inappropriate, but I also don't agree with the article blaming Hillary for the joke. She told him it took him long enough. It was DiBlasio who made the racist comment.

Varies but generally means 10-15 minutes late is on time for people of color.

No. It's just a stereotype. It's used by some as a joke.

"Did you make it on time?"
"Man you know I run on that cpt"
"True.."

Hilarious. So because he is married to an African American he can make the joke? What if they get divorced? Is he grandfathered in? If not when does his pass expire? Is it when the final documents are signed?

It was a joke. He may be white but he's been married to a black woman longer than I've been alive. Personally, I don't think white people should appropriate black achievements even if lateness is one of them but being in a black family for 21 year kind of buys you a one off color joke every few months.
