Louis C.K. thinks white people are too afraid of Harlem. (2:35)

PEOPLE ARE TOO AFRAID OF UPTOWNTHOUGH, REALLY.

A LOT OF PEOPLE TELL YOU,"DON'T GO TO HARLEM YOU CAN

NEVER GO THERE BECAUSE AS SOONAS YOU GET THERE THEY KILL YOU."

(LAUGHTER)THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE THINK.

AS SOON AS YOU ARRIVE IN HARLEMSOMEONE JUST STABS YOU IN THE

FACE RIGHT AWAY.

"HEY, WELCOME TO HARLEM.

HAVE A GOOD TIME.

NEXT.

GO BUY SOME WIGS, WHATEVERYOU'RE GONNA DO."

THAT'S PEOPLE'S IMAGE OF HARLEM;JUST EVERYONE JUST STANDING

AROUND 24 HOURS WAITING FOR LOSTWHITE PEOPLE TO KILL ALL DAY.

"DID YOU SEE ANY?

I DIDN'T EITHER.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE..."

PEOPLE ARE SO AFRAID.

I READ SOMETHING IN THE PAPERTHAT REALLY CONFUSED ME THE

OTHER DAY; IT SAID THAT 80%OF THE PEOPLE IN NEW YORK

ARE MINORITIES.

(LAUGHTER)SHOULDN'T YOU NOT CALL THEM

MINORITIES WHEN THEY GET TO BE80% OF THE POPULATION.

THAT'S A VERY WHITE ATTITUDE,REALLY.

YOU KNOW?

YOU COULD TAKE A WHITE GUY TOAFRICA AND HE'D BE LIKE,

"LOOK AT ALL THE MINORITIESTHEY GOT OVER HERE.

JESUS.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

WE GOTTA DO SOMETHINGABOUT THEM."

IT'S WEIRD.

THERE'S STILL A LOT OF RACISMBUT PEOPLE ALWAYS HAVE A REASON

FOR BEING RACIST.

I MET A GUY, A REALLY RACIST GUYAND I ASKED HIS FRIEND

AFTERWARDS, "WHY IS HE LIKETHAT?"

AND HIS FRIEND GOES, "WELL,HE WAS BORN ON A FARM."

(LAUGHTER)

WHAT KIND OF FARM WAS THAT?I MEAN, GET RACISM FROM A FARM.

WHAT?ARE THE ANIMALS RACIST?

(AS A COW) "JEWS, JEWS"(AS A SHEEP) "BLACKS, BLACKS"

(AS A COW) "JEWS"(AS A SHEEP) "BLACKS"

(AS A CHICKEN) BAUK, BAUK, BAUK,BAUK, "MEXICANS".

(LAUGHTER)

THAT'S A PRETTY RACIST FARMOVER THERE.

THOSE ANIMALS HAVEAN ATTITUDE.

ONE THING THAT'S CONFUSING TO MEIS ALL RACISM IS NASTY.

LIKE IT'S IGNORANCE,BUT IT'S ALSO

ALWAYS PAIRED UPWITH NASTINESS.

WHY CAN'T WE HAVE RACISMTHAT IGNORANT

BUT NICE, YOU KNOW?

YOU HAVE LIKE STEREOTYPESTHAT ARE POSITIVE ABOUT RACE.

YOU COULD SAY LIKE,"THOSE CHINESE PEOPLE...

THEY CAN FLY."

(LAUGHTER)

"YOU KNOW ABOUTTHE PUERTO RICANS...

THEY'RE MADE OF CANDY."

(LAUGHTER)
