As I said, my parents loved that when they came to America, if you worked hard, the only things that could stop you were the limits you placed on yourself.
I try to find the core values that are so fundamental that they transcend ethnic identity. That doesn't mean I run from it. I embrace African-American culture and I love it and embrace it, but it is a part of a human identity. So I'm always trying to make a larger human statement.
