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.”

As Ansari told it, visiting Sharpton is a punishment in and of itself for racist comments.
Watch the clip below:
Ansari gained international attention earlier this month when he responded with outrage to a Rupert Murdoch tweet about Muslims.
Maybe most Moslems peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible.— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) January 10, 2015
.@rupertmurdoch, you're already a vaguely evil media conglomerate guy and THEN you're ALSO racist? FOR REAL?! You're an evil overachiever!— Aziz Ansari (@azizansari) January 12, 2015
