The usually correct stereotype that African-Americans are incapable of punctuality, and are chronically tardy in both arriving at and beginning events and functions.
1)
White girl: Why are we still waiting? It should have started 15 minutes ago.
White guy: The organizers are black so we're on CP Time. They're probably backstage talking or eating.

2)
Black organizer thinking to herself: Well, we should probably start, even though most of my friends haven't arrived yet because of good old CP Time. I guess we'll wait another 30 minutes for the black folks to show up.

Cautious Politician Time. When a friend of a candidate for the presidency makes a racist comment while the candidate stands next to them and, instead of saying "That's not cool, Bill," later "clarifies" the comment by inventing a definition that nobody in the history of anything has ever used.
Hillary Clinton: Thanks for the endorsement, Bill. Took you long enough.
Bill deBlasio: Sorry, Hillary. I was running on CP Time.
*much later*
Hillary Clinton: CP Time actually stands for cautious politician time, not colored people time.
