This week two very different topics found themselves intertwined during our weekly “Did Y’all See?” taping. In one segment we discussed Kevin Hart’s disappointing proclamation that homosexual and political subjects are off the table for him because the matters are too sensitive to joke about, meanwhile his excuse for continuing to implement colorism into his routines when discussing Black women is “I’m a comedian.”

On the other end of the spectrum, you have Justin Beiber who has been caught on more than one occasion making racist jokes that, surprisingly (or maybe not), everyone from Birdman to Whoopi Goldberg has defended. The latter saying that the n-word doesn’t carry any meaning in Canada as though that gives the teenybopper a pass.

All things considered, we have to ask if our own entertainers won’t speak out against inappropriate behaviors, and more importantly engage in them themselves, does anybody really care about black people — including us? Check out the commentary in the video above and weigh in with your own thoughts below. Do Justin Beiber & Kevin Hart get a pass?
