    "Living on the northern side of the U.S.-Mexico border, it’s easy to view Latin America as another world, isolated from the United States. But the truth is that the U.S. government has historically made life in Latin America harder by overthrowing democratically elected governments, financing atrocities and pushing trade policies that undermine Latin American industries, dealing blows to local economies. Perhaps instead of building walls, the United States should focus on being a better neighbor."

I’ve noticed something during my day job…. lots and lots of dude eyebrow raises. If women are known for the duck face, men are guilty of the eyebrow raise. It just doesn’t have a dehumanizing name yet.ALTERNATE CAPTION: These comics aren’t hacky but their eyebrows are.

    I had the opportunity to be a guest on Stephanie Mickus’ podcast recently and, boy, did I open up. I talk about my dad passing away and how comedy has helped me deal with it, and how wonderful the response has been from strangers in the audience. I talk about getting my ass dumped last year, too. I mention a few things I probably shouldn’t, but that’s how it goes when you just start rambling. Basically, I talk about all of the shitty things that happened to me last year and what it is taking for me to keep pushing. I hope you enjoy listening to it.

    Let me know what you think and don’t forget to subscribe to her podcast!

    Thanks, friends.

"I’m giving a presentation tomorrow on the experience of African American males growing up in America.""What’s the thesis?""Hundreds of interviews have been conducted, and we’ve found that not only do most African American males fail to acknowledge institutional racism, they mainly tend to blame themselves for their failures. They say things like they didn’t work hard enough, or made too many mistakes. They don’t understand that they weren’t afforded the same opportunities."

    I don’t know if some of you have been to these live reads at LACMA, where a classic film is read live on stage by actors who just sit and read the script. We did one recently of American Pie, but we reversed the gender roles. All the women played men; all the men played women. And it was so fascinating to be a part of this because, as the women took on these central roles — they had all the good lines, they had all the good laughs, all the great moments — the men who joined us to sit on stage started squirming rather uncomfortably and got really bored because they weren’t used to being the supporting cast.

    It was fascinating to feel their discomfort [and] to discuss it with them afterward, when they said, “It’s boring to play the girl role!” And I said, “Yeah. Yeah. You think? Welcome to our world!
