Michael Blackson on The Arsenio Hall Show

Michael Blackson bills himself as “The African King of Comedy.” You got a problem with that, Modasucka? Blackson performed stand-up on Friday’s episode of Arsenio, and let us know that Compton has a new visitor. Please do not call him a booty-scratcher or anything that refers to the darkness of his skin. There are many more slang slurs for that than I knew about. And he’s not that dark-skinned, even? What do I know. Blackson wants you to know that wherever you may be from, take pride in your stereotypes. And don’t sell out. Unless you’re in Arizona. Then be whomever you need to be to get out.

Roll the clip.
