Black culture is a fight. We want to hold on to what we are, but sometimes the things that we are can be totally negative. You have to think: can't we try something new and not be seen as suspect?
We put stereotypes on ourselves. Everybody does that. But I think it's just a little harder for black kids to just be who they are.
I call 'Community' the best day job in the world, because between takes, I get to write music. I get to write sketches. I get to write movies. It's the best job ever.
But I just think I was lucky enough to figure out early on that I wanted to do comedy, so that's what I put all my effort into.
