In Living Color alum David Alan Grier joined Jimmy Kimmel Live to “educate” viewers on how to tell black people apart.

In the fake promotional video, Grier talks about his educational book: How To Tell Black People Apart.

How To Tell Black People Apart will help you discriminate without discriminating,” Grier says while holding the book.

Pegged to the white entertainment reporter who confused Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne, Grier created an acronym to help white people tell the difference between black people: “PATWWFLLM.”

Watch the skit above to find out what the acronym stands for.
