D.L. HUGLEY PEOPLE GOT WISE TO TRUMP Obamacare Not Just About Poor Black Folks

D.L. Hugley thinks Donald Trump failed to repeal Obamacare because the country got wise to the fact that the current plan protects more than just poor black people.

Hugley was at LAX Friday and his message is clear … he thinks Trump supporters were fine with taking health care away from African Americans, but then realized it affected them, too.

D.L. HUGHLEY F*** RESPECTING OFFICE OF PRESIDENT ... He Doesn't Respect Us!

D.L. Hughley says Steve Harvey is dead wrong about Snoop Dogg, and other entertainers, showing Donald Trump R-E-S-P-E-C-T … because the prez doesn’t know how to spell it.

D.L. told us at LAX … that old adage about how the public should treat a sitting president just doesn’t apply anymore. His pal, Steve, warned Snoop his “Lavender” music video is crossing a dangerous line.

But in D.L.’s eyes … Trump’s only getting what he’s giving.

"I've never met an angrier group of people. Like black women are angry just in general. Angry all the time."-D.L Hughley's attack on black women.

Here we go again…

Another hateful attack on the black woman. Like we don’t face this foolishness on a daily basis.

Okay, yeah its a comedians job to make people laugh…to make light of situations for a chuckle or two…but when you cross a certain line, its a WRAP.

During an interview with NPR’s Michelle Martin last week to promote his new book and upcoming comedy special, Mr. Hughley was asked about his views on women, more specifically black women. And that’s when the ^^ above quote was said. 

His full quote reads:

“Well, in her ability to kind of tolerate my– it’s her ability to tolerate me, A) and B) I’ve never met an angrier group of people. Like black women are angry in general. Angry all the time. My assessment, out of, just in my judgment, you either are in charge or they’re in charge, so there’s no kind of day that you get to rest”

As a black woman I take offense to his ignorant commentary on angry black women. Similar to a quote I reblogged sometime this week–the biggest misconception is that black women are angry for no reason! Trust & believe Mr. Hughley and others…there are reasons people cannot even fathom to think or understand! 

I’ve always held the notion that black men were the only ones that knew and understood the plight of the black women. I mean we may not be dealing and fighting the same injustices, but we were both fighting the hard battle together. 

It’s ignorant comments like this and those who think along these lines that just sadden me.
