THINGS BLACK ACTORS SAY:
"I'd be a horrible pimp, because if my girl says she has cramps, I'd tell her 'well baby you need to go on sit down and rest' I care too much!"
"Be Careful What You Create, because a lot of times what you create, you'll have to maintain that..."
"I think sometimes people get too caught up too much in 'What method did you study', because if you and I see a movie, we ain't gonna go "that dude right there, I betcha he's a Meisner actor'...no, we're going to say that dude ROCKED THAT BITCH"
"As an audience member, I feel slighted if I go see a film or a play and there ain't nothing truthful about what I'm watching"
"Never believe anything you hear in a room that a casting director tells you, because at times things change and at times they are lying through their teeth..."
"The reality is, we as black actors have to be 5 times as good as them white boys..."
