I Am not Racism, She Is

The Unknown Father – Copyright 2012  
Part one
Live at the Apollo Theatre


Live at the Apollo Theatre: An Unknown Father

      “Hello out there!”[Crowd Cheers]
      “Thank you,” 
      “So today, ------ Madonna went on down to Africa!” [Apollo Theatre Crowd boo and jeer] 
         “Yeah, me too,” “…but I will say this… it’s time we start talking about our kids and our heritage! What do you all say to that?” [Cheers]
          “Okay, but before I get to talking about that tonight, would ya’ll mind if I took a little survey first?” [Crowd cheers again]
         “Thank you.” 
         “So again, and before there is yet another celebrity adoption of the week - I’ve got to risk a few questions of ya’ll.” [Cheers]
          “How many of you out there were adopted as a baby? And when I say adopted, I don’t mean taken in by your grandparents - cause your momma was a crack ho’ and you don’t even know who your daddy be!”[Crowd Erupts Laughing]
         “Uh huh, just as I thought, if any at all - only a few and that one black gentleman who accosted me earlier tonight.” [He points far away… crowd looks confused, some laugh]
“It was one look at that dude… and I instantly knew he was adopted…!”
         “Anyway, if all ya’ll were adopted, ya’ll wouldn’t be in here - with me – inside – Live! - …at the Apollo Theatre!” [Cheers] 
       “No, no, no, ya’ll be outside - out there right now – somewhere in Queens.” And as that same black man, you’d all be trying to sell Hassidic diamonds and dressed like an orthodox Jew!” [Laughter]
        “Okay, okay, I’ve got one more question, but I must warn you now, it’s gonna drop like a bomb on everybody…”  
          “Now tell me…, in these United State of America, has anyone ever, EVER heard of a 'black baby’ having been intentionally abducted in a real extortion for money kidnapping case?” 
         “...Seriously, I'm talking about real life, Hollywood, or even voices coming out of those puppet mouths over at Hannity’s Fox News Network?” [Laughter]
         “Just think about what this means for a moment?”
[He’s Staring directly at a man sitting in the front row]
