The Parks and Recreation star first expressed his support for gay marriage ("Why is anyone against gay marriage? You know you're on the wrong side of things..."); then went off about how he thinks of civil rights progress during pumps of interracial sex; and concluded by delving into the Chick-fil-A controversy.
