D.L. Hughley get's no pass for comments about black women

Upstaging D. L. Hughley - By Eddie G. Griffin (BASG), shown above.
It’s hard doing standup comedy, especially when there’s a boo-bird
hidden in the audience like a Trojan horse. D. L. Hughley had to expect
it coming on Saturday night in Fort Worth, Texas at his Bass Hall
“D. L. Hughley. No double standard,” chanted the crowd outside the
Hall, led by a group of religious leaders. The crowd noise echoed
through the chamber and down the hall and up the stairs, all the way up
to the cheap seat section where I was perched- one man with one ticket
and a bible.
We were blessed. The North Texas storm blew in with pelting rain and
a lighting show overnight, but the incessant downpour subsided by
evening, and we had a clear night for the protest. It was a good sign.
After the protest was over the rain would return.
While local television cameras were panning the crowd of picket sign
holders who distributed flyers to all passersby, Bass Hall staff was
buzzing on the inside. I could see that they were on high alert.
Something was amidst, with all the recent newspaper and television
coverage. On the other hand, some people did not know why Hughley was
being boycotted. The demonstration gave protesters a chance to explain
how the black comedian had insulted the Rutgers basketball women in the
same manner as radio shock jock Imus, and how firing Imus and allowing
Hughley to pass constituted a double standard in treatment. More HERE
