You Haven’t Seen Everything John Cho Can Do
"They’ll say, 'We can’t cast an Asian because this other person is Asian,” or “We’ve got another Asian.' The fact that people are very open about it is very surprising to me, because you assume it, based upon the product. It would be weird to be in human resources and say, 'Oh, we can’t hire another Asian in accounting, because there’s a black dude in accounting, so, thank you very much.'"

RuPaul on His First Emmy Nomination, Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton
"If you're a politician — not just in Washington but in business and industry, you have to be a politician — there are a lot of things that you have to do that you're not proud of. There are a lot of compromises you have to make because it means that you can get this other thing over here. And if you think that you can go to fucking Washington and be rainbows and butterflies the whole time, you're living in a fucking fantasy world. So now, having said that, think about what a female has to do with that: All of those compromises, all of that shit, double it by ten. And you get to understand who this woman is and how powerful, persuasive, brilliant, and resilient she is. Any female executive, anybody who has been put to the side — women, blacks, gays — for them to succeed in a white-male-dominated culture is an act of brilliance. Of resilience, of grit, of everything you can imagine. So, what do I think of Hillary? I think she's fucking awesome. Is she in bed with Wall Street? Goddammit, I should hope so! You've got to dance with the devil. So which of the horrible people do you want? That's more of the question. Do you want a pompous braggart who doesn't know anything about diplomacy? Or do you want a badass bitch who knows how to get shit done? That's really the question."
