Chris Hardwick:As a black performer, what if someone says "oh, he's a black comic." would you go "why did you have to say that, why didn't you just call me a comic?" And other times, do you go "No, I am a black comic and I want to own that part of my heritage."
W. Kamau Bell:Anyone whose in that sort of other category in America, which is like you know, if you're black, weirdly women are sort of an other even though their most of the population, gay, could be religion, could be Jewish if you're in the wrong room, sometimes you're an other, you have to sort of reconcile what that means. And so for me, the moment I step on stage I'm a black comic. The moment I step on stage, and then it's up to me to sort of decide how do I want to play into that, or subvert that.
