John Mayer was talking to Playboy and they were talking about him being accepted by the black community. He said he has a "Hood Pass" but he also said he should be able to call it a "N-Word Pass":
MAYER:" Someone asked me the other day, 'What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?' And by the way, it's sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n***** pass."
Mr. Mayer I don't remember being at the meeting that gave you the "Hood pass" (I'm thinking all black people would vote on this matter) but if you did have a "Hood Pass" you can be sure that it is now denied.
I'm not going to call John Mayer a racist because I don't believe he's a racist but he is ignorant and as I said before: He's an ASSHOLE! By the way I don't feel guilty for downloading your last album now.
