“Saying that I’m obsessed with race and racism in America is like saying t hat I’m obsessed with swimming while I’m drowning. It’s absurd.” Hari Kondabolu
of “Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell” fame on race in America.
Kondabolu has a debut comedy album out called "Waiting for 2042" that is described on the iTunes page as "a wonderful mix of progressive (to the point where you can call it "lefty") and approachable (to the point where you can call it "warm," "fuzzy," and "cuddle-able"), where a trip to the store to buy cocoa butter (he's a proud, attractive cuddly fellow with "skin that's so f*cking beautiful")" turns into something akin to Noam Chomsky giving surly observations in a drug store's "ethnic needs" aisle ("Great! An end to police brutality, more access to health care, more educational opportunities...").
