Nate Hill is the New York artist behind the Free Bouncy Rides, Death Bear, the dead body dead body, and other, sunnier projects. Hill is biracial, and his latest work has a racial theme: for the next several months, Hill, in whiteface, will travel to Harlem as "The White Ambassador," prowling the streets to talk about important issues such as how white people are or are not stank. In the video above, watch as absurd performance art turns into an earnest and heartfelt conversation with a man on the street.

This is what talking about race in America looks like. I mean... it doesn't necessarily look like this, exactly. But progress takes many forms. This shit is awesome. Catch him uptown tomorrow, racist Americans!
