Steve Harvey Show

What the world needs now: A thrice-married comedian and daytime talk show host who madeĀ racist jokes about AsiansĀ has been assigned to help the White HouseĀ solve issues inĀ America's poor neighborhoods.

Yes, folks, Broderick Stephen Harvey, aka Steve Harvey, the host of Family Feud, the man behind ill-fitting suits sold by JCPenney, the author of the highly questionable "advice" book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man, is, according to Reuters, "teaming up with Housing Secretary-designate Ben Carson on [an] inner city initiative."

It should be noted that Ben Carson initially declined the role of Housing Secretary, allegedly becauseĀ he felt he didnā€™t have the experience to run a federal agency. (Since his training is asĀ a neurosurgeon, it is safe to say he does not!)

As for Steve Harvey, well, he has experience beingĀ a TV star, a producer, a radio personality, an actor, an author, a singer, and a fashion entrepreneur, but has also never beenĀ a civil servant.

So. Just a few questions:

  • What, exactly,Ā will Ben Carson andĀ Steve Harvey initiate in American inner cities?
  • Does Donald Trump only know black people who have been on TV?
  • While it is true that Steve Harvey was homeless in the '80s, what does Steve Harvey, a man with an estimated net worth of $100 million, who lives in a mega-mansionĀ with a million-dollar golf room,Ā know about the current state of America's inner cities?
  • Why is this happening?

UPDATE: Steve Harvey has issued a statement about how he got involved with "helping" Ā the "situations" in the inner cities. It's a bitā€¦ vague.
