Paul Mooney Praises Kanye; Says Black Is The New White!

Submitted by on January 9, 2010 – 12:03 pm9 Comments

Paul Mooney has always been one of my favorite comedians ever since my dad let me watch ‘The Richard Pryor Show‘ episodes that he had on VHS. New fans to the comedian great will recognize him from ‘The Dave Chappelle Show.’ Now, after the jump, see why folks love Paul Mooney.

During an interview with the legendary Davey D, Mooney praises Kanye West for his MTV Award antics, calls Oprah Winfrey a “double agent,” shares his thoughts on The Obama Administration, and this is part three. So, wait till you see what he has to say in the other two!

Paul Mooney has what I like to call – truth humor. It’s the thing that you think, but don’t know or want to say to others. It is non-conforming to a lie. It’s thoughts like this that propel his new book, “Black Is The New White.” In stores now, the 257-page book is full of witty observations of old Hollywood and how it has permeated into young Hollywood’s consciousness.

Check out Mooney and his thoughts with Davey D below. Share your thoughts in the comments section:

  • I’m so glad you posted this. I love Paul Mooney and have all of his stand-up performances on my iPod. I don’t know how I missed the news that he would be releasing a book, but I’m definitely getting my hands on it. “Truth humor” is a completely accurate description of the brotha.
    Well done!

    Says free who types like a grammatically incorrect child to Chris J, who types like a college-educated gentleman.

    Paul Mooney is awesomely hilariously, make sure you watch all 3 parts!

  • layzielucki says:

    I never followed Paul closely, I liked what he did on the Chappelle show, but i cannot agree with what he is saying in that video. Seems like he’s trying to get a rise of out people. For me, I suppose he’s only palatable in small segments.

  • @ Frost: Thanks for the compliment. I tried to convince myself that the idiot above was not referring to me, but because you solidified what I tried to deny, I’m GOING IN!!

    @ Free: Don’t have me to locate you by your IP address and teach you some respect. I’m from Mississippi, it won’t be the first time I used my fist to make a white supremacist FADE TO BLACK.

    Now that my bravado is out of the way, here’s the real issue:
    I know it’s hard to convince yourself that whites are superior to blacks when every part of your culture imitates or seeks to assimilate itself with black culture. However, your frustration is misdirected. You should be angry at you because you have failed to be honest with yourself. The truth is that we’re all equals, with no one superior and no one inferior. Realize that your expressed hatred, racism, and bigotry have no place in 2010 and find something better to do with your time than typing things on the Internet that you lack the courage to say in real-life, face-to-face conversations.
    Otherwise, change your screen name because you are not “free” at all. You are actually bound by ignorance, which dictates your every word and deed.

  • @ Free – Base to ya face, son!
