    Garrett Morris is one of my favorite performers EVER. Before "Two Broke Girls," before Jamie Foxx, before Martin, before SNL (I think) he was in "Cooley High" (another classic.) And "cat daddy"? I haven't heard that in years LOL Nice interview!

    For the white people who gets offended via black people getting proper representation. Get over it this helps the racist and prejudice people unlearn their b.s. For the white people who enjoy learning about and accepting black people keep it up. WE LOVE YOU TOOOOO!!!!

      STONY MAC Month ago +1

      My life is great by the way but thanks for assuming it wasn't shit because I'm black.

      STONY MAC Month ago +3

      So if Mexicans celebrate their culture are they separating anything? No, when they have programs in America speaking nothing but Spanish are they separating no. We put the word black in front of something and then we're creating rascism and get prejudice generalizations.Have a seat man your response was moot, one sided, and sad.
