FORGET YOU OSAMA, AND YOUR MAMA.

YOU AL QAEDA PLAYA HATER!

WE AIN'T SCARED OF

NO TERRORISTS, MAN, THIS IS

NEW YORK CITY.

FORGET ANTHRAX.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

THAT'S RIGHT MAN.

WE AIN'T SCARED OF NO ANTHRAX.

ANTHRAX?

PLEASE.

I GET ON THE A TRAIN.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

LOVE THIS TOWN.

LOVE THIS TOWN.

I'M FROM BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

YEAH.

YEAH.

GIVE ME A RIDE HOME.

(LAUGHTER)

EVERYBODY'S LIKE, "SORRY, NEGRO,

QUEENS."

I LOVE BROOKLYN.

THERE'S A LOT OF BLACK PEOPLE

IN BROOKLYN.

OKAY.

(LAUGHTER)

EVERYBODY'S LIKE, "WHERE ARE

THEY?"

THERE'S SO MANY BLACK PEOPLE IN

BROOKLYN, EVEN AFRICANS COME TO

BROOKLYN LIKE...

"OH, NO, TOO MANY BLACK PEOPLE.

I GO BACK TO ZIMBABWE."

NOW I LIVE ON THE

UPPER EAST SIDE OF MANHATTAN.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

NOW I'M THE ONLY BLACK GUY.

THE ONLY OTHER BLACK I SEE

IS MY SHADOW.

HE RUNS HOME.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT THIS WHOLE COUNTRY'S

CHANGING NOW.

YOU KNOW, EVEN LIKE WHITE

PEOPLE.

AS Y'ALL USED TO BE.

"YO, WHAT'S THE DILLY, SON!"

I'M LIKE, "HOLD--

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE DILLY IS."

HANDBOOK, OKAY?

OKAY, NOW I SEE 'CHILLIN'.

OH, THE DILLY.

A GREETING USED BY AFRICAN

AMERICAN GHETTO DWELLERS.

OH, HELLO!

I'M STILL SCARED OF THE COPS IN

NEW YORK.

YEAH, BECAUSE I'M TALL.

OKAY, BECAUSE I'M BLACK.

THEY SHOOT BLACK PEOPLE A LOT,

MAN.

AND THEY SHOOT US A LOT EACH.

THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU NOTICE THIS,

TOO.

IT'S LIKE WHENEVER SOMETHING

HAPPEN IN THE BLACK AREA,

THE TV NEWS, THEY ALWAYS SEND

THEY NEVER SEND THE WHITE

(SOUND OF HELICOPTER BLADES)

"OKAY, FROM UP HERE!
