Stephen Colbert has a solution to help all of his black viewers to change how scared white people like himself feel about them -- become Senators.
COLBERT: Nation, it's time we Caucasian Americans accept that when it comes to furthering the racial dialog, the ball is in our court, even though having the ball on a court has never been our strong suit. President Obama had taken the first step by frankly discussing, as a black man, how it feels to be in a room full of white people who are scared of him.
Now I believe it's my turn to be honest about the white experience... black people are scary. And, folks, that's not just me saying that. I mean, just ask the TV. […]
That's not prejudice. That's just math. Okay? So, if in 2011, out of 42 million African Americans, 4149 were arrested for murder, which means we can reasonably be scared of .009% of African Americans.

This is the same reason I assume all Arabs are terrorists and all Irishmen are leprechauns. […]
Now that I've done this, in the dialog of racial understanding, white people have done our part. Okay? We have shown the courage to admit we're terrified, but it's a two way street black people.
Which is why, right now, I would like to address all of my African American viewers. Folks, it is your responsibility to change how white people feel about you and according to President Obama, there's a simple way you can do it. […]
So the answer's obvious. Black people need to become Senators.
