Not one word of social criticism that’s been leveled my way has ever changed one word of any script or any story I tell.

In an episode of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight Show

his whole thing of the, this “war on drugs,” and the mass incarcerations that have happened pretty much for the last 40 years has just decimated the black male population. It’s slavery, it is just, it’s just slavery through and through, and it’s just the same fear of the black male that existed back in the 1800s. And uh, you know there’s a reason – I mean, especially having even directed a movie about slavery, and you know the scenes that we have in the slave town, the slave auction town, where they’re moving back and forth. Well that looks like standing in the top tier of a prison system and watching the things go down. And between the private prisons and the public prisons, the way prisoners are traded back and forth. And literally all the reasons that they have for keeping this going are all the same reasons they had for keeping slavery going after the whole world had pretty much decided that it was immoral.

I do believe in past lives and stuff like that. I know I must have been a writer in a few other lives. I know I was a black slave in America. I think maybe even like three lives.

Possibly Pro Adults Having Sex with Minors

JEZEBEL.com

In an interview with Howard Stern, talking about Roman Polanski’s sexual assault of a 13-year-old in 1977

He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape...he had sex with a minor. That’s not rape. To me, when you use the word rape, you’re talking about violent, throwing them down—it’s like one of the most violent crimes in the world. You can’t throw the word rape around. It’s like throwing the word ‘racist’ around. It doesn’t apply to everything people use it for. [...] And by the way, we’re talking about America’s morals, not talking about the morals in Europe and everything. [...] Look, she was down with this.

In an interview with The Guardian

I kind of grew up surrounded by black culture. I went to an all black school. It is the culture that I identify with. I can identify with other cultures too; we all have a lot of people inside of us, and one of the ones inside of me is black. Don’t let the pigmentation fool you; it is a state of mind. It has affected me a lot in my work.
