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.
