Ted Alexandro wants his own PSA against racism. (1:46)

I THINK WE ALL ARE. A LITTLE MYSTERY,

KEEP THINGS FRESH. LIKE THINGS YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN.

LIKE YOU GO TO MEXICO THEY TELLYOU "DON'T DRINK THE WATER."

YOU GO TO ANY DINER HERE, WHO BRINGS YOU THE WATER?

- [LAUGHTER] - IT'S A MYSTERY.

YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN THAT.IT'S A MYSTERY.

I GUESS THEY WANT TO BEPART OF THE SOLUTION.

[LAUGHTER]

YOU EVER SEE THOSE RACISM PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

WHERE THEY HAVE AN ATHLETE SPEAK OUT AGAINST RACISM

BUT THEY'LL MAKE ITSPECIFIC TO THEIR SPORT?

LIKE A BOXER WILL SAY, "WE GOT TO KNOCK OUT RACISM."

OR A BASKETBALL PLAYER WILL SAY,"WE'VE GOT TO SLAM DUNK RACISM."

I WANT TO DO ONE OF THOSE EXCEPT AS A COMEDIAN.

I'LL BE LIKE "RACISM'S NOT FUNNY...

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

"EXCEPT IN SMALL GROUPS OF CLOSEPERSONAL FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

KEEP IT WHERE IT BELONGS."

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

I HAD A RACIST THOUGHT THE OTHER DAY.

IT KIND OF MADE ME LAUGH.

I WAS WALKING DOWN THE STREET HERE IN NEW YORK CITY.

I SAW SOMETHING I'D NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

I SAW A TAXI CAB THAT ACTUALLY TURNED OUT TO BE

AN UNDERCOVER POLICE VEHICLE,

SIRENS, LIGHTS, THE WHOLE NINE YARDS. I THOUGHT TO MYSELF,

WOW, FINALLY A CAB THAT'LL PICK UP A BROTHER.

NOW-- YEAH, THAT'S A LITTLE RACIST BUT A LOT FUNNY.

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES.
