Kevin Hart may be the hottest comedian in the country right now, but his status is in jeopardy as long as he keeps putting his foot in his mouth.  Hart recently did an interview with Playboy Magazine and was asked about the nature of his jokes.  Kevin was first asked about a joke on Twitter four years ago, when he made fun of dark-skinned women, stating that they have worse credit than light-skinned women.  Of course that’s a no-no, but then again, comedians are taught to test their boundaries.

Here’s the joke, and you can tell me what you think.  If you want to know what I thought about the joke, you can read what I wrote.

 To make a long story short, I thought it was ironic to hear a dark-skinned man disrespect his dark-skinned mother by saying something so tragically misguided.  That might be considered the epitome of self-hatred, since Kevin is one of the darkest comedians in the country.

I was angry when I read the remarks (since my beautiful god daughters are both dark-skinned – we had to fight through some self-esteem issues because of it), but then I actually started to feel sorry for him.  I believe that Kevin sometimes says silly things because no one taught him any better.  He may also feel that his fame and fortune has allowed him to overcome the things he hates about himself the most, namely his complexion and his height (5’4″).
