"I couldn't even do it for black politics - and I was there."

If someone were to offer me 2 million dollars to do a black startup,
would I take the money? The answer is hell no, and the reason can be described in one word, Solyndra. I know how race works in this country, and I understand the presumptions about accepting money for trading in on you position in the race. You now have 2 million reasons to represent, and for me, that would become the biggest payday in my life. Eddie Murphy can afford to do that kind of clown movie, I cannot. I could never face my family saying I got paid for my looks and that's how I'm feeding you. == Obligatory Seriousness on Racial Bias, Silicon Valley & G - Cobb
