A white New Yorker, a white Redneck and a black Nigerian are
sitting in a hospital in Alabama. Their wives are giving birth
at the same time.

After a while, the doctor comes and announces that they all have
a son, and that everything went well, except for a little problem.
In all the confusion with three women giving birth at the same time, the babies got mixed up, and the mothers are still unconscious.

So he asks them to look at the babies and pick one. "And,"
he says, "because we're in Alabama I'll ask the Redneck
pick first."

The Redneck takes a baby in his arms and walks out into the hall, where his family is waiting. They immediately see that he is carrying a black baby.

After he explains what happened, they all shout: "You idiot! You picked the Nigerian baby! Didn't you see it's black?"

"Of course I did", the man replies, "but this is the only way to be sure we don't go home with a New Yorker".
