Melbourne-based stand-up comedian Aamer Rahman says a lot of white people don't like his comedy because it's kinda racist.

They say things like, "Hey Aamer, you get on stage. You make your jokes about white people -- don't you think that's a kind of racism? Don't you think that's .... *whispers* Reverse Racism?"  

Aamer, who is one half of a comedy duo called Fear of a Brown Planet with Nazeem Hussain, didn't laugh in the faces of "racially oppressed" white folks.  

In fact, he agrees that there is such a thing as reverse racism. And here is the only way you can become a reverse racist: 

"I could be a reverse racist if I wanted to. All I'd need would be a time machine, and what I'd do is get in my time machine and go back in time to before Europe colonized the world and I'd convince the leaders of Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Central and South America to invade and occupy Europe, steal their land and resources."

"In that time I'd make sure I'd set up systems that privileged black and brown people at every conceivable social, political and economic opportunity..."

So there you have it guys, every time you see anyone trying to play the "reverse racism" card, simply send them a link to this clip. Go on, you'll brighten up their oppressed world.
