Bill Maher Stunned When Charlemagne Says Black People Still Have To Be 5 Times Better

Tommy Christopher, Mediaite, June 15, 2024

Comic and political pundit Bill Maher pushed back when radio star Charlamagne Tha God said Black people still have to be “5 times better” than everyone else in order to succeed — which Maher called “a zombie lie!”


While discussing President Joe Biden’s commencement address to Morehouse College, Maher challenged Biden’s question to the class: “What is democracy if you have to be 10 times better than anyone else to get a fair shot?”

Charlamagne said now it’s more like five times {snip} :


BILL MAHER: You think you have to be five times?


CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD: When you’re Black in America, when you’re a woman in America. If you’re a Black woman in America? Absolutely!

BILL MAHER: I think that’s I think that’s a zombie lie!


BILL MAHER: Because I just don’t think that’s America anymore.
