There are some words that Rene doesn't respond to. (2:42)

MISSISSIPPI WHEN I GOT STOPPED

BY THE POLICE.

OH, I WAS SCARED, PEOPLE.

I'M NOT GONNA LIE.

BECAUSE IN THAT WHOLE TOWN,

THE WHOLE TIME I WAS THERE,

I DID NOT SEE ANY OTHER BLACK

PEOPLE.

I DIDN'T EVEN SEE A BLACK DOG.

(LAUGHTER)

I WENT TO A RESTAURANT.

THEY DIDN'T EVEN HAVE PEPPER.

(LAUGHTER)

AND IT WAS A CHINESE RESTAURANT.

AND YOU COULD TELL NO CHINESE

PEOPLE HAD EVER BEEN THERE,

'CAUSE I LOOKED AT THE MENU.

"SWEET AND SOUR GRITS" IS NOT

CHINESE FOOD.

(LAUGHTER)

IT'S NOT.

THEY DIDN'T EVEN GIVE ME A

FORTUNE COOKIE.

THEY GAVE ME A BISCUIT WITH A

HANDWRITTEN NOTE SHOVED IN THE

MIDDLE.

"NO, THANK YOU, SCOOTER.

NO, THANK YOU."

AND THEN THE POLICEMAN HAD THE

NERVE TO WALK UP TO THE CAR AND

GO, "HO, HO, HO.

YOU COLORED PEOPLE SURE LOVE TO

DRIVE FAST."

COLORED?

I SAID, "EXCUSE ME, SIR,

BUT I AM MAHOGANY-AMERICAN."

(LAUGHTER)

WHITE PEOPLE LOOKING AROUND

GOING, "DID THEY CHANGE THEIR

NAME AGAIN?

I DIDN'T-- I DIDN'T GET A MEMO.

DID YOU?"

(APPLAUSE)

I JUST DID THAT TO MESS WITH HIM

BECAUSE OF COLOR-- BECAUSE

AREN'T WE ALL COLORED?

ALL OF US ARE COLORED.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

ALL OF US ARE COLORED.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

IF SOMEBODY COMES UP TO YOU AND

THEY'RE TRANSPARENT, RUN!

IT'S A FRICKING ALIEN!

GO!

(LAUGHTER)

AND I THINK IT'S A TAD BIT

HYPOCRITICAL OF BLACK PEOPLE

TO HAVE NAMES THAT YOU CAN'T

CALL US ANYMORE BUT WE STILL

HAVE IN THE NAMES OF

ORGANIZATIONS THAT REPRESENT US.

"THE UNITED NEGRO COLLEGE FUND."

"OH, YOU CAN'T CALL US A NEGRO,

BUT WE WILL ACCEPT YOUR

DONATION."

(LAUGHTER)

I BELIEVE THAT IT IS NOT WHAT

YOU CALL ME, IT IS WHAT I ANSWER

TO.

AND YOU KNOW AFTER ALL THAT TIME

THAT I SPENT IN MISSISSIPPI,

I REALIZED THAT I'M AFRAID

WE HAVE NOT COME AS FAR AS

WE SHOULD AS A COUNTRY WITH

THE GAINS THAT WE SHOULD BE

MAKING CONSIDERING HOW GREAT A

COUNTRY WE ARE.

'CAUSE NOT ONLY DID I HAVE THAT

INCIDENT WITH THE IGNORANT

POLICE, BUT I GO INTO A CORNER

GROCERY STORE, GET READY TO WALK

IN.

THERE'S A SIGN ON THE DOOR THAT

SAYS, "NIGER, WHEN THE SUN DON'T

SHINE, I BETTER NOT SEE YOUR

BLACK BEHIND."

WELL, THAT DIDN'T STOP ME,

'CAUSE I DON'T ANSWER TO THAT.

I WALKED UP IN THERE ALL THE WAY

TO THE COUNTER, TO THE OWNER.

I SAID, "HEY, YOU SEE THAT SIGN

OUT THERE?

WELL, THE WORD 'NIGGER' IS

SPELLED WITH TWO Gs, YOU STUPID

ASS!"

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
