Hillary Clinton and Bill de Blasio Racist Coloured People Time Joke
12 April 2016
Clinton took the stage for a surprise appearance at Saturday’s Inner Circle Dinner and proceeded to needle Mayor Bill de Blasio for his belated endorsement.
“I just have to say thanks for the endorsement, Bill. Took you long enough,” Clinton told her former campaign manager.
“Sorry, Hillary, I was running on C.P. time,” de Blasio replied to gasps from the crowd.
As Raw Story explains, “C. P. time,” or “colored people time,” refers to “the stereotype that African Americans generally tell as a reason for being late to an event or a traditionally black event not beginning on time.”
“Hamilton” star Leslie Odom Jr., who is black, was onstage with de Blasio and Clinton. “I don’t like jokes like that,” he said to the mayor.
Clinton then appeared to rescue de Blasio by saying he meant “cautious politician time.”
The skit did not go over well with social media, where many users took issue with the racial nature of the material.

Racial Joke by Hillary Clinton, NY Mayor Leaves People Cringing
12 April 2016
Hillary Clinton and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio sparked controversy at an event on Saturday with a racially charged joke.
Clinton and de Blasio were joined onstage by Leslie Odom Jr. in costume as Aaron Burr, whom he plays in the hit Broadway musical Hamilton. Clinton thanked de Blasio for his endorsement–which many pointed out came rather late in the game–and ribbed him, “Took you long enough.”
The mayor replied, “Sorry, Hillary, I was running on C.P. time.”
The abbreviation refers to the stereotype of “Colored People time,” and several people in the audience could be heard gasping or groaning. Odom, who is black … rebuked him, saying, “I don’t like jokes like that, Bill.”
Clinton dryly replied, “Cautious politician time. I’ve been there.”
The exchange prompted pushback online, both from bloggers and social media users.
Clinton, who has performed well with black voters in early primaries, will depend on their votes in the New York primary on April 19.
Claiming that “C.P. time” means “cautious politician time” is a bit similar to saying: “KKK? That does not have to mean Ku Klux Klan. Don’t you know that KKK can mean Krispy Kreme Klub, about doughnuts, as well?”
From daily The Independent in Britain:
Hillary Clinton under fire for participating in racially charged joke
The joke poked fun at a negative stereotype of black Americans
Feliks Garcia, New York
Hillary Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio are under fire after making a joke at a fundraising dinner that played off a negative stereotype of black Americans.
Appearing at the annual Inner Circle charity dinner, the Democratic presidential front-runner appeared in a sketch with Mr de Blasio, along with Hamilton actor Leslie Odom Jr., where she thanked him for his admittedly late endorsement.
“Thanks for the endorsement, Bill.” Ms Clinton said to cheers. “Took you long enough.”
“Sorry, Hillary. I was running on CP time,” Mr de Blasio responded to groans from the audience. One member can be heard in the video yelling, “No.”
“CP time” is shorthand for the phrase, “coloured people’s time,” which refers to the negative stereotype that black Americans are often running late.
Mr Odom, who is black, responded in character: “I don’t like jokes like that, Bill. That’s not appropriate.”
Ms Clinton clarified that “CP” actually stood for “cautious politician,” not the more commonly used racial stereotype.
Ms Clinton has been under scrutiny when it comes to race in recent weeks. Critics of the former Secretary of State accuse her of being a key advocate of the 1994 Crime Bill passed by President Bill Clinton that led to the mass incarceration of countless black people.
“You are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter,” he said.
