Black people can't get lighter in the sun. (1:56)

I LOVE YOU, TOO, BABY.

(LAUGHS)

SO IT'S GETTING COLD OUTSIDE.

SUMMER'S OVER.

DID EVERYBODY HAVE A GOOD

SUMMER?

GOOD SUMMER?

OKAY.

I LOVE THE SUMMER, MY FAVORITE

TIME OF YEAR, LOVE IT.

ONLY THING I HATE ABOUT

THE SUMMER, I HATE TO SEE WHITE

PEOPLE WALKING AROUND WITH TANS.

I FEEL LIKE THEY MOCKING ME.

(LAUGHTER)

I SEE 'EM AT THE BEACH, THEY'RE

LIKE, "WE JUST GONNA LAY HERE,

LAY HERE, GET DARKER AND DARKER

AND DARKER, BUT WE STILL WHITE."

(LAUGHTER)

THAT'S MESSED UP.

BLACK PEOPLE-- WE CAN'T LAY IN

THE SUN AND GET LIGHTER AND

LIGHTER.

LIKE, WE JUST GONNA LAY HERE,

LAY HERE TILL WE GOT GOOD

CREDIT.

DON'T WORK FOR US LIKE THAT.

IT DON'T WORK.

WHITE PEOPLE ALWAYS GET, UH, GET

SCARED WHEN THEY SEE ME WALKING

DOWN THE STREET BEHIND 'EM, TOO?

I HATE THAT.

WALKING DOWN THE STREET,

THEY SEE ME, UH-AH!

BUT I FIGURE THAT'S NOT ENTIRELY

YOUR FAULT.

YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS?

WHITE PEOPLE CAN'T TELL THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HARD, HONEST,

WORKING BLACK PEOPLE AND

CRIMINAL BLACK PEOPLE 'CAUSE

WE ALL BASICALLY JUST DRESS

THE SAME.

WE ALL BASICALLY WEAR JEANS,

BOOTS, SOMETIMES OCCASIONALLY

BASEBALL HAT.

Y'ALL CAN'T TELL.

BUT SEE, BLACK PEOPLE,

WE CAN JUST LOOK AT WHAT A WHITE

PERSON'S WEARING AND TELL THIS

GUY'S MESSED UP.

GET AWAY FROM THIS GUY 'CAUSE

ALL THE BAD WHITE PEOPLE WEAR

THE SAME EXACT THING,

POLICE UNIFORMS.

SO...

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

I SAID IT.

CRAZY.

BUT SEE, THAT'S THE PROBLEMS OF

SOCIETY, PROBLEMS OF THE WORLD.

PROBLEMS OF SOCIETY, EVERYBODY

STEREOTYPES EVERYBODY ELSE.

EVERYBODY'S ALWAYS LIKE,

"OH, WHITE PEOPLE ARE KNOWN

FOR DOING THIS.

OH, BLACK PEOPLE ARE KNOWN

FOR DOING THIS.

LATINOS ARE KNOWN FOR DOING

THIS."

WELL, THE LATINO STUFF IS TRUE,

BUT UM...

(AUDIENCE GROANS)

SHUT UP.
