Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The black characters on TV are the sidekicks, or they're insignificant. You could put all the black sidekicks on one show, and it would be the most boring, one-dimensional show ever.

Sometimes, counter-intuitively, it's easier to make a major change than a minor change.
