Overheard at Table 2: Comedy Sketchbook - White Privilege and the Wal-Mart Receipt Checker


[Scene opens: Man on small stage with microphone.  Canned laughter sprinkled throughout the monologue]

"So I was at Wal-Mart the other day, and I'm buying my things at the self-check and I put them into bags and as I'm walking to the door, there's a lady there, Wal-Mart vest, who stops me and says, 'Sir, can I please see your receipt?'

"And I said, 'What?'

"And she says, 'Can I please see your receipt?'

"And I say, 'Why?'

"And she says, 'Cuz it's my job.'

"And I say, 'Well, can my White Privilege be my receipt?  Let's say you just saw my White Privilege.'

"And she said, 'Well, I'm sorry to tell you sir, but your White Privilege has expired.'

"And I lifted my fist in the air and said, 'Damn you, Obama!'"

[Scene closes]
