May also supports gays in the military. He often asks audiences if they would have less respect for the Navy SEALS who captured Osama bin Laden if they were gay. ''Hell, no! We'd all be like, 'Hey, homo, you're a hero! Give that boy some ribbons; them gay people love ribbons.'''
May builds much of his stand-up act around race relations, pointing out the illogical aspects of racism. On Arizona's longtime rejection of Martin Luther King Jr. Day: ''Arizona would rather hate on people than take a holiday.'' May, who grew up in Arkansas, says it's actually class rather than race that divides us. '''What's your color?' 'Ah, poor.' Hating people because they’re the wrong color or wrong religion, that's just dumb. Get to know them as an individual. Then you can hate them for some shit they really did do.''
