When I speak of diversity, I don’t mean replacement of white comics. I don’t mean acceptance by white comics. We comics who weren’t born into the white guy paradigm of ‘funny’ don’t need a handout. We don’t need a PC push. We don’t need ‘a look.’

It’s important to remember that the animals are not grieving with us. They’re very accepting. They’re not lying there thinking ‘How could you do this to me? Why aren’t you keeping me going?’ Pets don’t do the human things of guilt and anger and recrimination that we do. They come and go with great acceptance.
