W. Kamau Bell runs into a big problem when he brings his mixed-race daughter to the playground. (1:46)

Uh, I'll start, uh.I have a mixed race kid.

Anybody havea mixed race kid

or is a mixed race kid,by applause?


Thank you. All four of you.Sweet.

You got to geta mixed race kid, everybody.

That is the thing to have.

It's like having the new phone.It's awesome.

A mixed race kidis like walking around

with a conversation starter,

whether you want to havethe conversation or not.

You know whatI'm talking about?

"Look at that, look at that!

"Look at you,look at that!

"Look at you, look at that,look at you!

"I want it, I want it,I want it, I want it!

"Oh, jeez!

"I don't even like white people,but look at this right here!

It's so weirdthat we hate them."

It's awesome.It's awesome.

Weird thing about havinga mixed race kid,

not enough peopleknow this:

people who have mixed race kidsknow this.

Mixed race kid never looklike their parents

but they all kind of looklike each other.


I don't know if that's God'ssense of humor

or Darwin's last rule.

I don't know what it is.

It just makes it weird

when I go to the playgroundwith my daughter,

like, because when we movedout here--

We just moved to town:me, my wife and my daughter.

And we havea mixed race kid.

And people are like,You have a mixed race kid,

you got to go to Brooklyn.

That's the homeof mixed race children.


So we go to the-- Like,the playground in Brooklyn.

And I let my daughtergo play.

And I turn around,and all mixed race kids

kind of look likeeach other.

And I look back and go,Oh no.

Oh, man, where's--Which one's my daughter?

All right, I'm going to justtake this yellow Afro home.

Come on, let's go.

Change the diaper.There's a penis here!

Oh, come on!

I need to tradethis Lenny Kravitz, Jr.

for a Lisa Bonet.

Lenny Kravitz, Jr.for a Lisa Bonet.
