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.
It's more of a squint your eyes and WTF? type of thing. That's stupid
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.
He probably does.
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.
Locally, a foundation director was forced out of his job after joking about "Indian time"...
Hilarious. His family is colored. He knows what he's talking about.
What is colored people time?
Varies but generally means 10-15 minutes late is on time for people of color.
So black people are always late?
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"
I don't have any black people relatives, and I could have told you that he is right.
It is one of those comments that if I said it, I'd be a racist. But a person of color says it, it is funny. But if I laugh at it, I'm a racist.
Exactly jlong. Liberal double standard.
There's nothing liberal about it. Political and I both found it funny
And I dont get why context means nothing to you. Of course some things said in certain contexts would he racist and not in others.
So why did you say my comment below was racist?
Because sometimes I like to make jokes. But conservatives dont often pick up on them
I don't get it
Black people are late.
Hm. Never heard that one before.
It was extremely cringe-inducing.
I hate that guy.
You hate him and trump. Who do you like?
I bet fart Blasio is one of Trump's really good friend.
Diblasio is the worst mayor ever.
Probably so, but not necessarily for his joke.
"Cautious Politician time"
Imagine if Bernie said that.
Bernie doesn't have black children
Poor rehearsed and poorly stated. Implies black people are really slow. Remember Step and Fetchit? Bad joke, bad timing, bad everything.
If Trump said it, he'd now be dragging his cross to the crucifixion...
I think because Bill's son is part black and he has black privilege he could script statements that are on the edge!
Beach, it was still a contrived and silly thing to do. Don't know what the point was? To show that Hillary could be the third black president? You have Bill, Barack and ??
Hahah funny perspective. He probably considers himself a little ethnic having schooled his kids about rogue cops when they were younger.
I'm married to a cultural Jew. Am I entitled to talk about Hebrew time? Negative.
Extremely inappropriate. What was de Blasio thinking?
Clinton wasn't exactly criticizing his comment. Wrong move by her?
Did she know what he was referring to ?
Ya. Wtf is CP time? Has anyone ever heard that term before?
I know what it is. I doubt she did. It means colored people time, implying they are late. The same saying has been used for Jews and Arabs.
She didn't know what colored people time was just like she didn't know what happened to her emails.
Sounds like a racist joke to me. No surprise from the real racists.
The one married to a black woman? So racist he interbreeded
So if I have racist friends then I can get away with racist jokes?
His blood line is black. There's a little difference from that and a group of racist white guys.
So I can't be a racist if I have black in my bloodline?
It's just something you won't understand. It's ok
I'm mixed. There are some things the white spouse gets to say that would he deemed choice if said by another white person. Like I said, you just wouldn't understand.
And he's fairly open to criticism as a politician.
I'm just wondering why jokes can only be made by people of said race?
Because of America's past.
That's why America will never move forward because people like Beach are stuck in the past.
Um, if you don't recognize there's a stain on the past then why not throw around the word nigger?
Because I'm as lazy as a colored person
Now that's just racist.
LOL, you kill me! You demonstrate why liberals can't be taken seriously. The conservative adults have to keep this ship afloat while keeping the liberal children from drowning everyone.
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?
Yes. I thought we covered this.
I think it's inappropriate, but her goal was to get attention from the media and she accomplished just that.
I don't know if it helps her. Bernie will likely use it against her.
I had never heard the term CP time. Apparently, it was just a poor joke with CP standing for Cautious Politician time.
My first guess was corrupt politician...
It's OK folks, they're liberals so they can say whatever they want.
'What an articulate black guy! Can you fucking believe it? I just felt a tingle up my leg I'm so excited about this black guy who isn't housing his pants. What a time to be alive!'
I didn't think it was funny, that was a pretty terrible joke. But I don't see the race isn't behind it. This is more namby-pamby liberal whining.
Only an issue because they get a pass. If Cruz said this, he would be destroyed
Cruz doesn't have a black familu
Does it matter?
Well it's a colored joke that mostly people of color make. So it would be important that you or your family be a person of color.
You wouldn't fault Cruz for making a latino joke.
If it's not a mean joke, I won't fault anyone for making any type of joke.
That's such a hypocritical stance. Intent is what should matter, not who says it. How is that not hypocritical?
I've never heard that stereotype.
I've SEEN that stereotype
I'm ok with it. Never heard that before, but it wasn't racist.
And yes, there should be an end quotation mark, but I don't want to go through copying and pasting again.
Personally, I thought it was funny, but let's see if liberals get in a tizzy over a joke.
Liberals usually reserve their tizzies for republicans and give their own a free pass. Madelyn Albright being the exception. She got pure racism thrown at her recently.
You think racist stereotypes are funny? They are hurtful and inaccurate.
Oh please...you have to laugh about things.
Brandon, ever ask yourself why there's no stereotype for Asians raping white women?
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.
You must not want equality then.
