Comedian D.L. Hughley Sets Black People Back 400 Years on CNN [Video]



Comedian D.L. Hughley took an interesting approach in discussing the financial crisis the country is facing on his now cancelled show “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News.”

The show discussed the financial crisis the country is facing and attributed its failings to the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC), also known as Freddie Mac.

Created in 1970, the FHLMC buys mortgages on the secondary market, pools them and sells them as a mortgage-backed security to investors on the open market.

The sketch featured Donnell Rawlings, a comedian mostly known for his role on Comedy Central’s The Chappelle Show. Rawlings portrayed “Freddie Mac” on the show and donned a pimp outfit as he spoke in stereotypical pimp lingo, which included Rawlings saying, “Pimps up h**s down.”

Hughley’s show was controversial on many levels and led to it ultimately being cancelled. This show, in particular, proved to be very offensive and stereotypical to many African Americans.
