3034 Notes

nprfreshair:

“When I started doing my solo show one of my good friends, Martha, said to me, she’s like, ‘Kamau, you can’t end racism and make sexism worse.’ And I was like, ‘What do you mean by that?’ And she went through my solo show and pointed out all the different parts of it that she felt were sexist. And that’s a good friend, a friend who will tell you that in a way that you can hear. And that was a real revelation for me is that you can’t sort of pick your issue over other people’s issues — that if you want to end the ignorance of something, you have to end all the ignorances or at least not make some of the ignorances worse.”
- W. Kamau Bell on being called out on prejudices he didn’t realize he had

WKB is good people.
