This week, Bill Maher compared the police in this country to the Catholic Church – because they cover up for the ones that commit crimes and think they’re “infallible” and shouldn’t be questioned.
Soon after, comedian D.L. Hughley got into it with conservative author and columnist Dan Senor when the former GOP strategist, seemingly taking the side of the cops in Freddie Gray’s death, argued that it could not have been a race issue since the leaders of the city of Baltimore are mostly black.
“You know what you’ll never see at a Republican convention? You’ll never see a ‘Black Lives Matter’ t-shirt,” Hughley added.
“You’ll never see it. It’ll never happen, because it’s almost like that happens somewhere else beside the country we live in.”
“The thing that drives these riots is still lack of opportunity, impoverished schools, community divestment,” he explained.
“Yes, our families have changed, but the idea that we are ‘less than’ has not.”
