It's kind of redundant for a black dude to wear a Barak Obama t-shirt or a white dude to wear a Coldplay t-shirt. (2:06)

WHEN OBAMA GOT ELECTED,I WAS SO EXCITED.

IT WAS AWESOME.

I REMEMBER I WOREAN OBAMA SHIRT, RIGHT?

I WORE AN OBAMA SHIRTTHE DAY HE GOT ELECTED.

I WAS EXPECTING HIGH-FIVE CITY,YOU KNOW?

NOBODY DID ANYTHING.

NOTHING.

I KIND OF REALIZEDIT'S KIND OF REDUNDANT

TO HAVE A BLACK DUDEWEARING AN OBAMA SHIRT.

EVERYBODY'S LIKE,"YEAH, WE KNOW."

[ LAUGHTER ]

"YOU LIKE OBAMA.WE GET IT."

'CAUSE IT'S LIKE, YOU KNOW,I DO THE SAME THING.

I REALIZED -- IT'S LIKE,"YEAH, IT'S KIND OF REDUNDANT."

I DON'T GO UP TO WHITE PEOPLEWEARING COLDPLAY SHIRTS LIKE,

"YOU LIKE COLDPLAY?

"HUH. FOR HOW LONG?

FOREVER?"

THE ONE THING I DIDN'T GETABOUT OBAMA

THAT KIND OF MADE ME MADWAS, LIKE,

WHEN HE WAS COMING UP,PEOPLE WERE LIKE,

"WE HAVE A SERIOUS BLACKCANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT."

THIS IS CRAZY.

"WE HAVE A SERIOUSBLACK CANDIDATE."

AND THEN WHEN HE WON,THEY WERE LIKE,

"OH, OUR FIRSTMULTIRACIAL PRESIDENT."

AND I WAS LIKE,"THAT'S NOT FAIR."

I MEAN, LIKE, LET'S SETTHE RECORD STRAIGHT, OKAY?

IF YOU WENT OUTSIDE TONIGHTAFTER THIS SHOW

AND BARACK OBAMAWAS STEALING YOUR CAR,

YOU WOULDN'T YELL, "HEY!SOMEONE STOP THAT MIXED GUY!"

[ LAUGHTER ]

YOU WOULDN'T.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

YOU WOULDN'T SAY THAT.

OBAMA LOOKS BLACK,SO PEOPLE TREAT HIM BLACK.

IT'S LIKE, IT'S NEVER BEENABOUT WHO YOU ARE AS A PERSON,

'CAUSE THAT'S UP TO YOU.

YOU GOT TO CHOOSE THAT STUFF.

IT'S ABOUT HOW PEOPLE TREAT YOU.THAT'S WHAT RACE IS ABOUT.

LIKE, YOU KNOW, I GOT A LOTOF MIXED FRIENDS

WHO JUST DON'T KNOWHOW THEY FEEL ABOUT STUFF.

THEY'RE JUST LIKE,"I'M CULTURALLY CONFUSED."

AND I'M JUST LIKE,"MAN, NO, LISTEN.

IT'S ABOUT HOW PEOPLETREAT YOU, OKAY?"

IF YOU'RE MIXED AND YOU'REWALKING DOWN THE STREET

AND SOMEBODY ASKS YOU,

"HEY, WHAT DID YOU THINKOF THE MOVIE 'JULIE & JULIA'?"

YOU'RE WHITE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOBODY'S EVER COME UP TO MEAND ASKED ME ABOUT MY OPINIONS

ON "MAD MEN"AND "REVOLUTIONARY ROAD."

NO ONE, OKAY?

NOW, IF YOU'RE WALKINGDOWN THE STREET AND YOU'RE MIXED

AND SOMEBODY'S LIKE,"HEY, WHAT DID YOU THINK

"OF LAST NIGHT'S EPISODE

OF 'THE REAL HOUSEWIVESOF ATLANTA'?"

YOU'RE BLACK.

OR GAY.

[ CHUCKLES ]

IT'S ONE OF THE TWO.
