“Black people are very resilient,” he observed in a 2013 club performance for comedytime.com. “I read in USA Today that, since the recession, the rate of suicide has gone up. And I know this has nothing to do with my people, because we don’t let bills kill us. I’ve never seen a bill that made me want to kill myself, ever. My light bill could be $3 trillion, and I’d be calling them, ‘Hey, I’m gonna send y’all something Thursday.' … Because I’m not going to spend all my money on bills. My white friends are the only ones who do this…. Are you crazy? Something’s not getting paid.… I’m not sitting in my house broke on a Friday!”
