I DON'T KNOW IF ANYBODYHAS SEEN ME ON DONAHUE RECENTLY.

HAS ANYONE SEEN THAT ?THANK GOD.

DIDN'T GO QUITEAS WELL AS I THOUGHT IT WOULD

BECAUSE I WAS UNPREPARED.

THE TOPIC WAS"ANGRY WHITE MEN".

SO THEY SAID, "WELL, LET'S GETDAVE CHAPPELLE FOR THAT.

MAYBE HE'LL BE ABLE TO THROWSOMETHING IN THE CONVERSATION."

I SAID, "WELL, OKAY,I'LL COME OVER,"

'CAUSE I'M THINKINGWE'RE ACTUALLY GONNA HAVE

A CONVERSATION, BUT WHAT HAPPENSON THESE SHOWS IS ALL THE GUESTS

HAVE AN AGENDA,THEY COME IN THERE,

AND THEY'LL SAY THE SAME THINGSOVER AND OVER AGAIN.

AND I THOUGHTWE WAS JUST GONNA BE TALKING,

SO HALFWAY THROUGH THE SHOW,I JUST GAVE UP.

I HAVE THE TAPE,

I'LL SHOW YOUSOME OF THE TAPE.

IT WAS EMBARRASSING, MAN.

( man )YOU KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENED ?

HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENEDBECAUSE OF THAT THINKING--

AS WELL INTENTIONEDAS IT MAY BE--

IS YOU HAVE TAKENTHE WHITE PEOPLE AND YOU HAVE,

"A", MADE THEM ANGRY,AND, "B", YOU TALK...

WHITE PEOPLETALK AMONGST EACH OTHER...

WHEN THEY SEEA BLACK PERSON

IN A JOB IN A COMPANY,

THEY SAY, "HE ISAN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION HIRE..."

( imitating nasally )"HE'S AN AFFIRMATIVE ACTIONHIRE."

THAT'S A LOT BETTER THAN SAYING,

"HEY, THAT NIGGA'SHOMELESS".

I'D MUCH RATHER BE CALLED"AN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION HIRE"

THAN "BROKE AND UNEMPLOYED".

AS YOU CAN SEE, THOUGH,FROM THE TAPE,

I REALLY DIDN'THAVE NOTHING TO SAY.

I WAS, LIKE, "SHOULD I JUSTCHOKE SOMEBODY, OR... ?"

ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT,LET'S TAKE ANOTHER LOOK,

SEE WHAT ELSE WE GOT HERE.

I THINK ONE OF THEUNDERLYING ISSUES HERE IS

AFFIRMATIVE ACTIONFORCES SOMEBODY--

YOU'RE FORCING PEOPLE,

AND ANYTIMEYOU FORCE SOMEBODY,

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOUGENTLEMEN,

BUT I DON'TLIKE TO BE FORCED.

WHEN I'M PUSHED,

I'M ONLY PUSHED SO FAR...AND THEN I PUSH BACK.

"FORCED."

OH, YOU MEAN,LIKE, "SLAVERY FORCED" ?

REMEMBER THAT THING WHERE YOUFORCED US TO WORK, HUH ?

WHAT DID YOU THINK ?BLACK PEOPLE WAS, LIKE,

"NO PROBLEM, BOSS,I'D LOVE TO !"

MAN, THAT WAS INFURIATING, MAN.

BUT, I, FOR ONE,I'M GONNA SAY IT PUBLICLY,

NOT ONLY AM I FOR AFFIRMATIVEACTION,

I WILL TAKEIT A STEP FURTHER...

I WANT MY REPARATIONSFOR SLAVERY.

( cheering and applause )

THAT'S RIGHT.

I'M TRYING TO GET PAIDFOR THE WORK OF MY FOREFATHERS.

DONE AND DONE.

THE ONLY THINGTHAT I WOULD SAY,

IS IF WE DO EVER GETOUR REPARATIONS,

WHICH I DOUBT,

BUT IF WE DO, WE BLACK PEOPLEHAVE GOT TO GET TOGETHER,

AND COME UP WITHA PLAN FOR THE MONEY.

THIS IS A CONSUMER-BASEDECONOMY.

YOU CAN'T JUST GIVEBLACK PEOPLE ALL THIS MONEY

AND TURN THEM LOOSEON THE STREETS.
