In a recent interview with the New York Post, comedian and actor, Tracy Morgan said:
I’m glad I dropped out of high school, man. I wouldn’t be where I’m at. I would have had a net. I’m glad I didn’t have anything to fall back on, man, because that made me go for my dreams that much harder.
Unfortunately, most Black men will not become stand up comedians and actors, so hopefully people won’t use Tracy as a reason to drop out of school. Imagine how much funnier and powerful Tracy Morgan would be if he supplemented his brilliant sense of humor with a high school and college education.
