Because they like to put this whole rioting narrative on the black community. Like that's our thing. And like, rioting is not a black thing. Resilience is a black thing. Overcoming the odds is black thing. Frying chicken, barbecuing, durags, that's black shit. (audience laughing) But riots, that's not our thing, okay? That's not, it's... and it's not like we wanna do it. 'Cause I don't like in the news when they're talking about these cases and these verdicts that are about to come out, they're always like, "The verdict will be read at 04:00 PM. We'd advise you to stay inside, board up your windows, evacuate the city if you can." Like it's some kind of hurricane warning. It's like, rioting is not plan A, it's plan C. Plan A is telling America, "Ay, there's some messed up stuff going on." And we hope they hear it. Plan B is showing footage of the messed up stuff we have been talking about and we hope that's digested. But if plan A don't work, and plan B don't work, (grunts) (audience laughing) We gonna have to burn something. (audience laughing) I'm not a rioter, or one who riots. Too much smoke, I got asthma, you know? It gets in between me and my message, I can't even get the full slogan out, you know? So what I like to do is let the rioters do their thing, and then when they go to sleep, then I hit the streets, go to racist people's cars and take off their current registration sticker. Yeah, yeah. (audience laughing) I'm not gonna fuck up your property, I'ma gonna fuck up your day. I'ma send you to the DMV 'cause black lives matter. And then I'ma key your shit. 'Cause I be mad but I don't wanna like, be a riot person, but I do wanna strike back. Like I don't know. I just wanna be like, a petty rioter. Like, next time somebody does some messed up stuff, shoot some unarmed black dude, I'ma be mad but I'm not gonna burn the city down, I'ma just find the house of that cop and break in, and take they best wine (audience laughing) and throw it in the freezer, you know? (audience laughing) I'ma just mess up their next celebration. "Grab the wine, honey." (James screaming) (audience laughing) - To me, the only difference between a good comedian and a good reporter is a neck tie. You see a issue, gather the facts of the issue, you deliver an opinion and perspective on the issue that you hope will educate people. And some cases with some comedians that (indistinct) change. (upbeat music) - I know black people are tired though, we really fucking tired. So we just voting for black people right now. And I know white people try to make us feel guilty. Like, "Oh, you only voted for Obama because he's black." Fuck yeah! We voting for everything. Jamal, Trey, Ray Ray, Little Rell, all them n****s, we voting for them, yeah. If there was a candidate named Niggi Niggerson, I would vote for him, do you understand? Like, (audience laughing) white people vote for white people too, that's why the fuck y'all still in power, ain't enough n****s voting, so we gotta get out and vote. Where the camera at? (audience laughing) You know it's like Kevin Hart talked about it, right? He says he don't wanna do anything too political. He's experiences these things, but he wants to just, you know, have fun, and people come out to see him and have a good time, and I understand that. I just don't wanna be that because you're saying things out of your mouth that people are picking up with their ears and digesting. - I like watching Trump rallies, yeah. 'Cause for the first time in my black life I get to see white people be embarrassed by other white people. Now you know how we feel when we watching news and they always pick the worst eye witness. They're like, "Live from the fire, sir with the missing teeth, and the cornrows on the side with a bald spot, would you like to tell us what happened tonight?" (audience laughing) He be like, "Yo news lady, bitches shit was crazy, yo. I was pushing my cart across the street, I saw a fire. (audience laughing) They'll be like, "Do you know how the fire started?" "It was me, it was me." Over the course of the past four years of traveling I've definitely seen a change. Like, I knew Trump was going to win before everybody else that I knew knew. Because I would be out there for the past two years driving, cornfields miles, hours, huge Trump signs. I'm not talking about like, a little thing in the front yard, I'm talking about like, 10 by 10 erected in the cornfield. It was kinda like white people just woke up and was like, "Oh, we don't have to hide the way we feel anymore. We have somebody that's gonna back us up." - There's a turn back the clock agenda going on in Washington DC. N****s have gotten a little too far, you know? Eight years of a black man coming out of the White House drove certain people to madness, all right? 'Cause when you vote for a orange motherfucker, you know, that's madness. When you vote for a motherfucker who has the IQ of plant life, that's madness. - You know, I was working at the "Tonight Show" at the time and everyone was crying and everything. And then some of my friends were like, "Well, I'm not even going home for Thanksgiving. This is crazy." And I was like, "Why aren't you going home for Thanksgiving?" And they were like, "'Cause Trump is a racist, and they're racist, and they voted for a racist." And I was like, "Oh, cool, cool cool. Your uncle was racist last year. Like, nothing has changed." Like, I don't know why we give this dude all this credit. Maybe 'cause he puts his name on everything, we're letting him put his name on history. - We are living in a weird political time right now. I know 'cause I'm on Facebook. A lot of people get in political arguments on Facebook called Facebook drama. If Facebook is drama for people who've never been in a fist fight. (audience laughing) I don't think Facebook is drama 'cause I been in a fist fight. Like, I'm from the projects, the only time I've seen words hurt someone is when I saw a girl get hit with a belt buckle that said Denise. (audience laughing) In the era of Trump I kind of already act on my impulse to turn my anger and make it productive for me. So a lot of people who are like, the age of Trump or talk about that in a way, I feel like just started getting angry in November. And I've been angry the whole time. Like, going to five high schools, seeing my grandfather die when I was 10 years old, not growing up with my dad in the house, growing up in the projects, knowing friends getting killed when I was a teenager. Everything that, you know, could have like, broken me down, has made me like, someone who overlooks all the political stuff, and is just like, you don't understand like, what I escaped. I'm a lot stronger than whatever this four years, age of Trump whatever bullshit. Niggers don't got time for that. - Yeah, I mentioned it, you have to because this is the world we're living in now, but I'm not spending my time talking about that man. I'ma let you guys get used to the voice, 'cause I can see some confusion. (audience laughing) He's looking at me like, "Is that Idris Elba? What's happening? (audience laughing) You didn't know before Idris, that there was black people in England. You didn't know, you didn't know. I've been living in America 10 years, and for nine and a half of those years, people thought I was an Australian Aborigine. (audience laughing) I get into a lot of twitter fights with people going, "You immigrants, you guys come into our country and taking our jobs." I'm like, "The only reason I'm born in England is 'cause you guys came to Nigeria and fucked it up." When you come to someone's house and mess it up don't be surprised if they turn up at yours, we're family now. - People are taking obvious sides. They either incorporating politics into their humor, or they're not. - I'm not a political comic at all. I have opinions, but it's not like I consume politics on a daily basis. I wish we could have a break, just a break. - The way that cops describe black men after they shoot us is insane. It's like, "He looked like a beast from hell." "He charged at me like a linebacker." "I feared for my life." - Let us not forget the classic, "I thought he had a gun." vintage law enforcement. - Oh yeah. That's their catchphrase. That's their version of, "Did I do that?" And you're like, "Yeah, I saw the video." (audience cheering and applauding) - Our experiences in England as black people are very similar. You forget the Brits were the best racists. They were the most prolific slavers. The Americans did the equivalent of like, if you rob someone's house, or you steal something, and you take it back to your own house. Whereas the Brits rob someone's house and hid it somewhere else. The experiences in England as black people, it's the same. The only reason black people don't die at the same rate in England at the hands of police, is 'cause our police don't carry guns. - But one time... this is actually how I was stopped by the cops in a cab. I was pulled over by the cops in a cab on the way to another comedy show. And I was in Brooklyn, and I felt like they were working with this cab driver I should say, to just like, stop brothers who were surprised that they got a cab in the first place. I had to go to another show and still process that. Of course, I have to joke it off, but it still like, that pain, it doesn't really fully leave me, or I'm not over it 'till I can like, you know, write a joke about that. This actually happened to me recently. I was pulled over by the cops in a cab. Yeah. I didn't know they could do that either. And they put on the lights, boop.
