Obama to Mac: clean up your act

Barack Obama is “talking down to black people” again. This time the target of his condescension is comedian Bernie Mac, who got schooled by Barack for making the following joke at an Obama fundraiser:
The Chicago-born comedian and actor told what he said was a joke about his nephew coming to him and asking the difference between a hypothetical question and a realistic question.

To demonstrate the difference, he tells the nephew to go ask his mother if she would make love to the mailman for $50,000. The mother says she would make love to the mailman and anybody else for $50,000.

He tells the nephew to go ask his sister if she would make love with her neighbor for $50,000. She says she would make love with the neighbor and anybody else for $50,000.

So he tells the nephew: “Hypothetically speaking, we should have $100,000. But realistically speaking we live with two hos,” Bernie Mac said.
As is so often the case, this unfortunate situation could have been avoided by deploying Sinbad. Not only is Sinbad “ as the wind, an unpredictable force that can't be harnessed”, his comedy is rated DG, or “Very clean. Suitable for family or conservative groups. No strong language and little or no sexual dialogue or situations.”

I wonder, is Obama habitually careless about who he associates with? Or does he have some sort of grudge against Sinbad? Or both?
