In an uproarious appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, comedian Chris Rock makes a special overture to white voters who have been largely resistant to voting for President Barack Obama.

Rock satirically suggests that white voters should back Obama’s re-election because: he’s white.

He then illustrates by poking fun at his old moniker, Barry (“the third whitest name in history”), his upbringing by white grandparents and his work as a community organizer in Chicago (“How white is that?” Rock jokes incredulously).

The finale of the clip, in which Rock argues that Romney is actually “blacker than Obama,” is sublime.
