In his most recent appearance on Conan O’Brien’s show, Louis C.K. tells an absolutely brutal anecdote about a radio appearance in Arizona where the person giving him a ride started complaining about “the Mexicans” and what happens when he told her about his experience coming to America after years of living in Mexico and speaking mostly Spanish:
We’ve talked some about C.K. and race, and the extent to which he does or doesn’t claim his Mexican heritage, so it’s nice to hear that he uses his powers of Mexicanness for good. I’m seeing C.K. in Baltimore tonight, so in keeping with this video, I promise not to tweet through the experience. Though I will take notes so I can give y’all a full report on Monday.
