Anthony Anderson Says Trip To Africa Made Him Consider To Stop Using The N-Word, Talks To Big Boy

As some cross their fingers for the first family to make an appearance on Blackish, Anthony Anderson talked with Big Boy earlier to tease the new season. Previously it was mentioned that the series will tackle controversial topics like gun control, health, and the N-Word. When discussing his use of the N-Word, Anthony expressed that he really considered to stop using the word after hearing it repeatedly on a trip to Africa.

When I went to Africa that was the first word that came out their mouth.. and the way that they use it just struck a cord with me…..reminded me of when Richard Pryor went to Africa and said he didn’t see any N-words over there, so thats why he stopped using it

Continuing their conversation he spoke more on his background, health, and more about season 2.
