NOW, LADIES, I AGREE THAT BLACKLIVES MATTER BUT BLACK MANNERS

MATTER AS WELL.

ALL RIGHT? AND JUST KEEPING IT100, IF WE ARE KEEPING IT 100,

AND ALSO BASED ON THEDEMOGRAPHICS, IF BERNIE SANDERS

THAT'S ALL I AM SAYING.

BUT THIS DIDN'T DERAIL BERNIE'SCAMPAIGN, HE ACTUALLY LET THEM

CAMPAIGN.

BUT NOT ALL -- YEAH, SURE.

BERNIE WAS VERY NICE.

HE WAS VERY GRACIOUS ABOUT IT.

BUT NOT ALL PEOPLE RESPECTED HISLETTING THE BLACK LADIES SPEAK.

SO HERE WE GO.

SO WE HAVE GOT THIS CRAZYSOCIALIST WHO'S PROMISING FREE

COLLEGE, HAS THOUSANDS OF PEOPLESHOWING UP TO HEAR HIM TALK.

AND WILL MAKE SURE BLACK WOMENWON'T YELL AT US.

OKAY? SO IT SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD.

SO WHY ELSE SHOULD WE TAKE HIMSERIOUSLY? SANDERS HAS

DETHRONED HILLARY CLINTON IN NEWHAMPSHIRE AFTER TRAILING HER BY

DOUBLE DIGITS BACK IN MARCH.

LOOK AT THAT.

>> Larry: OH, MY GOD.

OH, NO.

NO! IS THIS HAPPENING AGAIN? ACANDIDATE OF PASSION IS ABOUT TO

OVERTAKE HILLARY? SHE'S ABOUTTO GET OBAMA'D BY AN OLD WHITE

MAN? OH, MY GOSH.

I MEAN, LOOK, IT IS ONE THINGFOR A COOL BROTHER TO JUST BURST

ON THE SCENE AND ALL THATBROTHERNESS JUST SPILLS OUT ON

THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL.

THAT'S JUST SCIENCE.

ALL RIGHT? BUT WHEN PEOPLE AREMORE INSPIRED BY A GUY WHO

LOOKED LIKE THE ABOUT TO RETIREDEAN OF STUDENTS AT OBERLIN, I

HAVE TO ASK, YOU HAVE GOT TOSTART ASKING, WHAT THE HELL IS

GOING ON?

ATTRITION. THAT'S WHY I'MINTRODUCING OUR SLOGAN:

HILLARY 2016, HASN'T AMERICA HADENOUGH EXCITEMENT FOR A WHILE?

OUR NEW CAMPAIGN SLOGAN.

>> THAT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE THEBEST KIND OF SLOGAN.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THEPROBLEM? DO YOU THINK LIBERALS

AREN'T EXCITED BECAUSE SHE ISNOT LIBERAL ENOUGH?

>> I GUESS THAT POSSIBLE, LARRYIT JUST HAS NOT BEEN IMPORTANT.

WHEN YOU HAVE GOT SOMEONE LIKEBERNIE SANDERS WHO IS EXCITING

AND GENUINE AND WHO NO ONEDOUBTS CARES ABOUT THE MIDDLE

CLASS, I MEAN, THAT GUY -- HE'SLIKE A DREAM FOR A PROGRESSIVE

LIKE ME WHO ISN'T ALREADY LOCKEDINTO THIS OTHER CAMPAIGN.

WOW.

ALL RIGHT.

SO I WAS SHOPPING FOR ACOMBINATION RIDING MOWER BEER

KOOZIE-CHEEZ-IT DISPENSER AT THETARGET THE OTHER DAY, RIGHT? AS

ONE DOES.

WHEN I NOTICED SOMETHING WAS ALITTLE DIFFERENT.

RETAIL GIANT TARGET IS MAKINGSOME MAJOR CHANGES TO ITS

SIGNAGE BASED ON GENDER.

TARGET IS VOWING TO MAKE CHANGESBY GETTING RID OF GENDER

REFERENCES AND REVAMPING SIGNAGEIN THE TOY, BEDDING AND

ENTERTAINMENT AISLES.

>> Larry: OKAY.

WOW.

SO, BASICALLY, I INSTEAD OFGIRLS BEDDING AND BOYS BEDDING

IT WILL JUST SAY KIDS BEDDINGWHICH WILL PROBABLY BE MOST

HELPFUL FOR YOUR EX-BOYFRIENDWHO STILL SLEEPS IN STAR WARS

SHEETS.

>> Larry: SO HOW ARE MOMSFEELING ABOUT THIS MOVE.

>> I THINK IT IS GREATBECAUSE I DON'T LIKE WHEN THEY

TELL ME WHICH SECTION TO GOSHOPPING FOR MY BABY GIRL AS IF

SHE CAN'T PLAY WITH SOMETHING INTHE BOYS SECTION.

>> YES, IT MAKES SENSE.

ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TOBABIES, THEY HAVE GOT WAY MORE

TO FOCUS ON THAN GENDER, LIKEFACIAL RECOGNITION, RIGHT, AND

THAT WHOLE BOOM BOOM SITUATION.

YOU KNOW WHAT I AM TALKINGABOUT, RIGHT? IT SOUNDS GOOD,

SO WE ARE GOOD, RIGHT?

>> NOW YOU HAVE TO SIT THERE ANDLOOK AT A BLENDED AREA AND

WONDER IS THIS FOR A BOY OR ISTHIS FOR A GIRL?

>> Larry: REALLY? WE ARESTRUGGLING THAT MUCH OVER A TOY?

>> YOU KNOW, I ALWAYS WANTED TOKNOW WHICH SECTION THE LEGO CITY

SPACE PORT SET SHOULD BE IN.

BECAUSE FRANKLY I HAVE NO IDEA,IS IT A CITY? IS IT A PORT? IS

IT IN SPACE? SO MANY QUESTIONS! JESUS CHRIST, SUPERSTORE! OK.

WHO IS NEXT? LOWE'S.

OH.

SO WHAT HAPPENED? HOMEIMPROVEMENT RETAILER LOWE'S HAS

APOLOGIZED AFTER A VETERANEMPLOYEE WAS PULLED FROM A

DELIVERY JOB BECAUSE HE'S BLACK.

DANVILLE VIRGINIA DRIVER MARCUSBRADLEY SAID HE WAS TOLD THE

CUSTOMER DIDN'T WANT A BLACK MANSHOCKINGLY, THE STORE HONORED

THE REQUEST.

>> Larry: OKAY.

WAIT A SECOND.

OKAY.

FIRST OF ALL, HOW DID THISCUSTOMER EVEN KNOW THE RACE OF

THE DELIVERY GUY? I'VE NEVERSEEN THAT OPTION AT THE

CHECKOUT, RIGHT?

>> NOW TO BE FAIR TO THECUSTOMER, EVERYONE PROBABLY

SHOULD'VE KNOWN THERE WOULD BETROUBLE WHEN THE ORDER WAS

JUST NAILS, TWO PLANKS OF WOODAND SOME GASOLINE.

WE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN.

IT IS A JOKE.

IT IS A JOKE.

BUT STILL, THAT'S (BLEEP)ED UPLOWE'S, BROTHER HE IS WAS JUST

TRYING TO DO HIS JOB AND HE GETSHUMILIATED LIKE THAT, LUCKILY

THERE WAS ONE MAN WILLING TOSTAND UP FOR MARCUS.

>> I MEAN, I THOUGHT THAT LOWE'SWOULD TAKE UP FOR ME.

>> WHO DID TAKE UP FOR HIM? HISFELLOW DRIVER OF 11 YEARS,

REFUSING TO COMPLETE THEDELIVERY WITH A NEW WHITE

PARTNER.

TO ME, YOU KNOW IT, JUST AIN'TRIGHT FOR A BUSINESS THAT WE

WORK AT.

>> WAY TO TWO, ALEX, THAT'S AVERY STRANGE ACCENT YOU HAVE,

BUT THAT DOESN'T MATTER BECAUSEYOU DID A GREAT THING AND

DEFENDED YOUR FRIEND.

THAT'S AWESOME.

NICE TO HEAR THAT.

YOU KNOW WHAT? I HAVE TO SAY, IREALLY CAN'T BELIEVE THIS.

BECAUSE THIS IS EITHER THE WORSTKIND OF RACISM I HAVE NEVER SEEN

OR THE WEAKEST.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? TO BEHONEST, WITH ALL OF THE DEATHS

AND POLICE DRAMA WE HAVE BEENTHIS YEAR A CRAZY WHITE PERSON

THAT DOESN'T WANT BLACK PEOPLEDOING MANUAL LABOR FOR HER,

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO? IT IS SORT OF REFRESHING.

IT'S LIKE A SPOT OF RACISTSORBET TO CLEANSE THE PALATE.

SO GOOD FOR YOU, CRAZY LADY.

WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>> Larry: WELCOME BACK.

I AM HERE WITH MY PANEL,COMEDIAN AND SHOW RUNNER HERE AT

AUGUST 13TH THROUGH THE 16TH,COMEDIAN ALONZO BODDEN, ONE OF

THE FUNNIEST COMEDIANS AROUND.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>> Larry: LET'S GET STARTED.

WE TALKED ABOUT THE JESUS CHRISTSUPERSTORE.

THE TARGETS IS NOW CLASSIFYINGTOYS AS NOT FOR BOYS AND GIRLS

ANYMORE, NOW THEY ARE JUST TOYSAND BE MORE GENDER NEUTRAL AND

WITH BEDDING AND ENTERTAINMENTTOO.

SO SOME PEOPLE THINK IT IS PCPOLICE GONE WILD, BUT I THINK

IT'S JUST WHERE WE ARE RIGHTNOW.

>> I THINK THIS IS JUST WEIRD, ABIT OF AN ANTIQUATED SYSTEM.

THIS IS RESIDUAL STUFF FROM LIKEDICK AND JANE, EVERYONE NEEDS TO

JUST CALM THE (BLEEP) DOWN.

>> WE ARE TALKING ABOUT LIKETAKING A SIGN DOWN AND A LITTLE

REPAINT.

WE ARE NOT LIKE TRYING TO MAKEBOYS GIRLS AND GIRLS BOYS, WE

ARE JUST MAKING IT, PRESENTED ALITTLE MORE EQUALLY, LIKE HERE

ARE THE TOYS, TAKE WHAT YOUWILL.

DESPITE THE CRAZY PACKAGING, ASPARKLE HERE AND STAR WARS HERE.

>> Larry: THEY ARE JUST TOYS.

>> TOYS A.

>> THEY ARE MAKING TOO MUCH OF ABIG DEAL LIKE SO WHAT IF --

HOWEVER IT IS LABELED, LIKE KIDSARE GOING TO PLAY WITH WHAT THEY

PLAY WITH.

I DON'T THINK IT IS GOOD THATTHEY ARE TAKING THE SIGNS DOWN,

BUT I DON'T THINK IT IS THAT BIGOF A DEAL.

LIKE IF A GIRL WANTS TO PLAY

WITH A TOY TRUCK, SHE IS GOINGTO SEE THE TRUCK, OH, THAT'S A

BOY'S TRUCK AISLE, I CAN'T GODOWN THERE.

SHE WILL STILL GO DOWN THERE.

SHE CAN STILL PICK UP THE TOYS.

GIRLS, DON'T PLAY UP WITH CARS,WOMEN GROW UP LIKING FERRARIS.

>> A VERY GOOD POINT.

>> SOMEHOW THEY PICK IT UP.

>> AND THE MEN WHO DRIVE THEM.

>> THERE YOU GO.

>> AND A LOT OF KIDS CAN'T READ,SO IT DOESN'T REALLY IMPACT

THEM.

>> BY THE WAY -->> YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

>> YOU KNOW, TO ME IT IS LIKETHE SIGNS ARE, TARGETS ARE HUGE,

LIKE I GET LOST -- THERE ARESTORES THAT SELL LIKE CHAIN SAWS

AND LIKE DIAPERS AND LIKE TVS INTHE SAME AISLE.

>> YES. TO ME, THE MORE SIGN-- NO IT IS NOT THE SAME AISLE,

TO ME THE MORE SIGNS THE BETTER,I DON'T CARE WHAT THE SIGNS SAY,

ANYTHING THAT GETS ME OUTFASTER.

>> WE ARE NOT GETTING RID OF ALLOF THE SIGNS.

>> BUT IT'S A SLIPPERY SLOPE TONO MORE SIGNS!

>> DID YOU NOT HEAR BRIANKILMEADE?

>> ISN'T THE ISSUE MORE FOR THEPARENTS THAN THE KIDS.

LIKE WHEN YOU TURN A KID LOOSEIN A STORE, HE RUNS WILD.

HE DOESN'T LOOK WHAT AISLE TORUN IN

>> Larry: OR SHE.

>> SHE IS CAPABLE OF RUNNINGWILD AS WELL.

NO WORRIES.

>> GO AHEAD.

>> I SHOULD SAY I HAVE ADAUGHTER, AND I WILL SAY SHE IS

AT THE AGE WHERE SHE DOES READAND IT IS DIFFERENT BECAUSE SHE

WILL READ BOYS SOMETHING ANDTHEN SHE IS LIKE, NOT HAPPENING

SHE IS LIKE, NOT GOING TO GOTHERE.

BUT IF IT IS JUST SOMETHINGENGINEERING, IT IS THIS, IT IS

THAT, SHE IS INTERESTED BUT IFIT IS LABELED ONE OR THE OTHER,

THAT'S IT, WE'RE DONE

>> I THINK IF YOU LABEL A TOYENGINEERING YOU LOSE BOYS AND

GIRLS.

>> I AM WITH YOU.

I AM WITH YOU.

>> THE MINUTE YOU SAYENGINEERING, NO, THAT'S NOT FUN.

>> YOU ARE RIGHT, YOU ARE RIGHT.

>> IN THE TOY AISLE, LIKE WHEREIS THE ENGINEERING AISLE?

>> THAT KID HAS GOT BIGGERPROBLEMS

LIKE PICKING THE WEDGIES OUT,GIVING KIDS WEDGIES THAT IS NOT

OKAY, THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

>> YOU ARE GOING TO GET WEDGIESIN ENGINEERING.

>> JUST TO BE CLEAR --.

>> SO WE WILL GET RID OF ALLGENDER CLASSIFICATIONS?

>> ADULT TOY STORES DON'T HAVEGENDER CLASSIFICATIONS.

I MEAN --[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> YES.

AMERICANS -->> MAYBE THEY SHOULD.

>> YOU CAN SHOVE ANYTHING UPYOUR ASS --

>> I DON'T THINK IT MATTERS THATMUCH TO KIDS.

I THINK IF YOU TAKE 100 KIDS ANDJUST PUT THEM IN A ROOM AND LET

THEM PLAY, THEY ARE GOING TOFIGURE IT OUT AND SOME BOYS, THE

BOYS ARE GOING TO DO BOYS STUFFAND GIRLS ARE GOING TO DO --

SOME OF IT IS HARD WIRED INTOUS, YOU KNOW THAT --.

>> OVER THE YEARS LIKE THE EASYBAKE OVENS GIRLS ARE SUPPOSED TO

COOK, WHO PUT THAT IN YOURSECTION, IF UH YOU WANT TO

BUILD, BOYS ARE SUPPOSED TO BEARCHITECT, LOOK AT THE BUILDING

OVER HERE, THERE IS SUBTLEMESSAGING HAS BEEN IN THE

CULTURE FOR A LONG TIME.

>> IS IT THE CULTURE OR DNA? IMEAN, WOMEN LIKE NESTING, RIGHT?

SO YOU GENERALLY HAVE WOMEN --.

>> WOW.

>> YES.

IT IS TRUE.

>> I DON'T CARE IF THEY GET MAD.

IT IS TRUE.

I HAVEN'T HAD MY BOY SAY, YO,LET'S GO TO IKEA.

>> WOMEN SAY GO TO IKEA AND FINDWHAT THEY WANT AND THEN AS A MAN

YOU GET HOME AND YOU AREEXPECTED TO KNOW HOW TO PUT THAT

(BLEEP) TOGETHER.

>> YEAH.

>> AND THAT'S WHEN YOU RUN INTOTROUBLE.

>> HOW CAN A KID EXPLAIN GENDER?

>> YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT WHERETHEY STARTED KIDS AND WHERE THEY

GROW UP.

>> IF THEY DID MORE ENGINEERINGSTUFF WITH GIRLS, THEY WOULD BE

ABLE TO PUT THAT STUFF TOGETHER.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>> LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.

>> HOLD ON A MINUTE.

BOY OR GIRL, YOU CAN'T BUILDSOMETHING WITH A WRENCH THAT

SMALL.

>> AND THE AGE OF VIDEO GAMESLIKE DO KIDS KNOW WHEN YOU ARE

PLAYING ONLINE, THAT KID WHO ISKICKING YOUR ASS IN MADDEN MIGHT

BE A 12-YEAR-OLD GIRL.

THOSE GAMES, THEY DON'T CARE WHOPLAYS.

GIRLS WANT MORE GIRL CHARACTERS,WHICH I UNDERSTAND AND I THINK

IS GREAT.

>> BUT WHEN THEY GO TO PLAY, IHAVE NEVER SEEN VIDEO GAMES IN A

BOY OR A GIRL'S AISLE.

>> BUT THEY JUST BARELY PUT ANIMAGE OF A WOMAN ON ONE OF THOSE

FIFA BOXES OF SOCCER PLAYERS.

>> YES, IT IS TAKING TIME TOCATCH UP.

>> VIDEOS GAMES IS A WHOLE OTHERTHING BECAUSE PEOPLE WHO PLAY

VIDEO GAMES DON'T GENERALLY TALKTO GIRLS, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

>> IT FEELS LIKE IT IS ONE OFTHOSE THINGS THEY REALLY DON'T

WANT GIRLS TO BE A PART OF THAT.

>> OH, NO.

THEY ARE HAPPY WHEN A GIRL SHOWSUP.

>> REALLY?

>> I DID ONE OF THOSECONVENTIONS AND A GIRL SHOWED UP

AND THOSE GUYS -- THEY DIDN'TKNOW WHAT TO DO, BUT THEY WERE

ALL HAPPY.

>> THEY WERE HAPPY.

>> I HAVE OFFICIALLY LEARNEDNOTHING TONIGHT.

WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK.
