Kicking Doors Open (with Gina Yashere) – Episode 25 of Professional Troublemaker

This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with comedian, producer, author, and fellow Naija queen, Gina Yashere. She was the first and only British comic to perform on Def Comedy Jam and has three comedy specials on Netflix that she co-produced. She’s also a writer and series regular on the CBS sitcom Bob Hearts Abishola, which she co-created with Chuck Lorre.

“Black trauma is never given space to heal because we have to make sure the white people who hurt us don’t feel too bad about it. Even as victims, we’re told to care about the feelings of those who harm us.”
Luvvie Ajayi, I'm Judging You: The Do-Better Manual

“We are entrusting thousands of strangers with our innermost thoughts and feelings, and then we're expecting them to be careful with those feelings. As much as we want it to be, the Internet is not a safe space. It is not a place where we can lay our burdens down and heal. Why? Because there are too many people there who do not give an ounce of a shit about our well-being. They do not deserve our rawness, and they will not treat it with care.”
Luvvie Ajayi, I'm Judging You: The Do-Better Manual

“First of all, even nice people can be racists, because racism does not depend on malicious intent. It is not a requirement for you to consciously hate someone who is of a different skin color for you to be racist. Let me repeat. You do not need to actively hate someone who is of a different race than you to do racist crap and hold racist views.”
