The Actor Who Wants to Be ‘the Brown Al Sharpton’ – and the Muslim one too

Whenever a celebrity says something that’s perceived to be racist against black people, it seems they’re soon scheduling a trip to visit Al Sharpton to apologize — at least that’s how comedian Aziz Ansari sees it.

But what about “brown people?”

“The problem is, brown people don’t have a guy,” the “Parks and Recreation” actor told Dave Letterman Friday night. “I’m throwing my hat in the ring, I’m the brown Al Sharpton.”

Ansari gained international attention earlier this month when he responded with outrage to a Rupert Murdoch tweet about Muslims.

This is what happens when the media treats a person like Sharpton seriously. You get imitators.  There is a video at the link, should you wish be further disgusted.
