Larry Wilmore Drops The N-Word On National Television

He concluded Obama's last White House Correspondents' Dinner by talking about how much having a black president meant to him.

Comedian Larry Wilmore concluded his remarks at the White House Correspondents' Dinner by dropping the n-word on national television after talking about how much having a black president meant to him.

"When I was a kid, I lived in a country where people could not accept a black quarterback. Now think about that, a black man was thought by his mere color not good enough to lead a football team," he said. "And now, to live in your time, Mr. President, when a black man can lead the entire free world."

Saying words could not do him justice, Wilmore simply concluded the last White House Correspondents' Dinner of Obama's presidency by saying, "Yo Barry, you did it my n***a."
