Neil Patrick Harris Says the N Word at the Tonys

Aright I know that there is some celebration going on about how many Black actresses and actors won an award at the Tonys.  Given the ongoing lack of good roles and or recognition of POC at award shows, this is truly something to talk about.  Of course when Whiteness throws us a bone, there always has to be a catch. The following is from the cameo with Patrick Harris and Mike (the rapist) Tyson.

In the video a portion of what he said was bleeped out. What follows is a transcript from The Daily Mail:

'And make things bigger, like bigger
'I'm here with Iron Mike Tyson he's a heavyweight yo
'We're going bigger is 'Is I his n***a'.

Alright, Tyson was clearly in on this supposed gag but as far as I know, the acceptance of one man regarding a slur, does not somehow give permission for a White man to use the slur in a public forum and there are few venues more public than an award show.
