doesn't understandwhat we go through
is necessarily racistor bigoted.
That's--That's a far jump.
It's a lot of folks that juststraight-up don't know
what it's like.
And you gotta educate 'em.
You gotta educate 'em onthe kind of America you live in.
I had to go to Best Buy and givea dude some straightening.
Straighten his ass out, yeah.
Dude at Best Buy gonna decideI don't need a bag
with my purchase.
"You just have an iPhone case.
I figure you could justpop that open."
No, I ain't popping shit.You put it in a bag.
I need that in a bag.
"What do you need a bag for?
"I don't understandwhy you need a bag.
Don't you careabout the Earth?"
I go, "Sir, this has nothingto do with the Earth.
"I'm a black man in America.
I gotta leave this storewith a bag, bro."
(cheers and applause)
It's about safety.
I'm black, I don't getthe luxury of just walking out
with shit in my hand.
That is a roll of the dice.
That is a horrifyingday if I--
No, not only do Ineed that bag, bitch,
I need that receipt!
And staple itto the outside.
I don't want a receiptin my hand.
You staple my receiptto the outside
like Chinese carryout,
and I'll hold it up in the air,I'll "Lion King"--
I'll "Hakuna Matata"an iPhone case
out of Best Buy.
And it's not his fault.He just didn't understand.
He thought he wassaving the Earth,

'Cause, see, you might bea cool person.
He might-- The cashiermight be a cool-ass dude,
but we don't knowwhat the security guard

I come prancingout of Best Buy
with this naked-assiPhone case in my hand.
And here comes security.
