Kenya Barris In conversation with Tyler, ‘Why can not we tell our stories’?

Tyler, the Creator, and Kenya Barris both grew up in the same suburb of Los Angeles. As a rapper and hip-hop independent agitator Tyler has spent a decade creating music, borders and key presses. As an author, director and producer behind shows like Black-ish and the film travel Girls, Barris also won praise from critics and audiences. They both share a desire to create a cultural form to be where all the freedom to find yourself. Kenya Barris: One of my security men who make security for your business Golf Wang [in L.A.]. I was looking at your Tweet about black anger was destroyed after a shop window during the protests. What does it mean for you? I’m sure I calls from your white friends, “Hey, man, I just wanted to say I’m sorry.” Tyler, the Creator: My shop is solvable. I’m not too. That was a terrible time, but had a bit ‘of humor: “O. K. called” People like it is a strange sense of guilt that they had a lot of good intentions. Tweets and comments I have to say white youth, “You have to say something.” They’re like, “What,” I’m over 6ft I am dark .. You see those lips. This broad shoulders. How can you tell me to say something about me? KB: People will have an opinion about your place in this, and they never have a place in this era. I still have to ask permission to make a fuss of my people. This is not attractive. get whites to say ad nauseum [their] announcement stories, but select [them]. You can get all Wes Anderson to David Fincher for Spike Jonze. The result is many white versions. We get five stories: crime, slavery, the hood: “I have no husband” and “I’m looking out of the ghetto.” And a biopic of a hero. Why can not we tell our stories? TTC: All everybody thinks of Los Angeles, is lowriders and gang culture. I was not from Compton. We ran a skateboard and wearing Supreme, always in the field of photography and Tim Burton. We let people know that this is also a part of L.A .. If people do not let you use your voice, make your way. This is what I did. KB: I also grew up skating. But we are not monolithic. TTC: I like to see blacks children now with orange hair and paint your nails. But in 2003? No. KB: What part of delamination is an acceptance of diversity and different ideas. They have helped to create a track where children can be alone. It is formed before being. I have a show on Netflix this year, #blackAF that the best and the worst experience I had in my life. TTC: I loved the fourth or fifth episode, this discourse was Tyler Perry. This was one of those moments where I was like, this is what I feel, since I was born. When I started at 18, it was the intention of all the question everyone O. K. was with because everyone is different. KB: What did was lyrical satire. With my show, because the population was a little ‘older, it does not mind was so open. It ‘was like, “This is not a true black family.” They’re like, “This is my family,” It ‘sa problem that we are not able to expand on what people see us be used. This is the goal of my career, to push the conversation and culture forward. TTC: Everyone does not recognize that they live in a bubble. You make a black-ish and do this type of black family was very strong. Black Watch-ish character and seeing-I Junior associate. KB: We’re constantly thinking, Keep your head down, stay out of trouble. white culture is making free thoughts much more than allow us. We have not really done until we are able to criticize one another. Moderated by Raisa Bruner
