"All the racists in here make some noise," Cannon says to the audience. "I'm right there with you. I'm racist too. Yes, I am a racist, I'll say it. I stereotype. There's a stereotype for reasons. I'm prejudiced. All prejudice means is pre-judging. Yes, I pre-judge people, I do. If I meet somebody from India, I assume they house smell like curry."
Cannon goes on, "My Asian friends, I don't let them walk my dog. Because they might wok my dog! I'm racist! I am. If I see a middle-aged white man in some sweatpants by a school, pedophile!"
Cannon then touched on the subject of the Trayvon Martin murder, joking, "White people, you guys are scared of young black men in black hoods. I'm scared of old white men in white hoods! KKK, that s--t is real."
Cannon's surprising standup video comes days after he caused a bit of controversy by dressing up in whiteface to promote his new album White People Party Music. Cannon defends his whiteface costume on tomorrow's episode of Rachael Ray.
"I mean, I've been planning this over a year, to release my album on April Fools' Day, call it White People Party Music, and dress up as that character, Connor Smallnut," Cannon says on Friday's episode. "The funny thing is, if you listen to the album, or kind of go into the backstory of that character, that character is an ultra-sensitive character who hates Nick Cannon, and is offended by the album title ‘White People Party Music.'"
"Some people can't take a joke, but I wasn't trying to reach those people anyway," he says. "I'm reaching people that have a sense of humor and know how to laugh."
