Eric Andre ABC Fact

On the occasion of National upheaval caused by COVID-19, American comedian Eric Andre’s parents want their son to look out for the crowd, and COVID rather than race apocalypse. 

The comedian slash actor was born to a Jewish mother and a Haitian father.

In an interview with Interview Magazine, Andre talked about his comedy and heritage. He revealed the time their parents lived in as a very discriminatory time when people weren’t allowed to share a water fountain solely based on their race.

As a result, the present scenario of black and white didn’t come as a shock to them since they have lived it before. 

Andre was asked if his parents imparted him with any wisdom relating to racial issues. Andre answered his parents have always been politically minded people and are more worried about him getting the coronavirus. 

 My parents are more worried about COVID. They’re like, “Don’t go out into large crowds, you’ll get COVID!” And they’ve been very politically active and politically-minded their whole lives. So, they’re more worried about the virus than the race apocalypse. 

In addition, the 37-year-old also spilled beans on racist cops. He said he has been rightfully arrested sometimes, and the cops are way more racist inside the jail than they are outside. 

I mean, if you think cops are racist outside of jail, once you’re in jail, they say every pejorative in the book. They’re dropping N-bombs. They’re calling Mexican prisoners “Burritos” and shit like that. 

In a Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Andre has humored about being bluish given his father and mother are black and Jewish respectively. 

The comedian is apparently quite close with his family. His father, Pierre Andre, is a psychiatrist. His mother is LGBTQ and women’s rights advocate. In 2016, Eric’s mother, Natalie, won Susan B. Anthony Feminist of the Year Award.

Natalie’s children, Eric and Amy, presented her with the award. The comedian also congratulated his mother on Instagram.
