Bill Maher: ‘Why Aren’t Black Celebrities Asking Why Young Black Men Are Killing Each Other in Cities like Chicago?’

Liberal HBO host Bill Maher has called out Chicago’s failed leadership after the Democrat-controlled city was hit with more violence.

Maher blasted ousted Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Mayor-elect Brandon Johnson, LeBron James, Barack Obama, and Oprah Winfrey for failing the people of the once-great city.

Maher accused Johnson of “excusing horrific behavior” after the mayor-elect called on the public not to “demonize” the violent mobs of rioters who have been terrorizing the city.

He also called out black celebrities for turning a blind eye to the violence that hits African American communities the hardest.

Maher said: “Most of the shootings in Chicago are young black men killing other young black men. Is that not correct?”

Guest Glenn Loury said: “Yeah, that’s correct,”

“Okay, much more than what the cops do,” Maher continued.

“Why doesn’t anybody talk about that?

“Why aren’t there a hundred giant black celebrities who would have the respect of those people saying what are you doing to yourselves?

“Why are you killing each other?”

“It dishonors our community. Come on, we’re better than this,” Loury said.

“Right,” Maher said. “It’s never addressed.”

Loury said: “What I would want to observe is any structural move that you want to make requires a majority of people to get behind it, requires Democratic politics to get behind it.

“In order to get a majority of the voters in Chicago or any place else to get behind anything that is going to cost them they have to feel safe.

“They have to feel that the people in charge are on their side. And that’s why Mayor-elect Brandon Johnson needs to come and give speeches saying this is contemptible behavior, we won’t tolerate it in our city.

“The reason why we have cops is precisely in order to stop this from happening and if you do it on my watch you’re going to go to jail.”

Maher said:

“One in three children in America can not read at a basic level of comprehension.

“85% of black students lack proficiency in reading skills.

“We already spent a lot of money on schools.

“So are you going to keep telling me that more money will fix this because I feel like this is much more connected to the problems of people who can’t read.

“Yes, they’re going to have problems with gainful employment and it seems like, you know, a lot of times the solutions that come from the left seem symbolic.

“They don’t seem like we’re addressing what really needs to be done which is get kids learning, get them reading, get them to have a job.

“It doesn’t seem like the money is getting to this problem if 85% of black students lack proficiency in reading skills,” he said.
