“I wanted to open up the conversation about how there are still very much these spaces where the attitude of the majority is that these things are expected and they don’t even question it,” Cedric tells Deadline. “The conversation is what happens when people in this culture try to act like there’s really not racism anymore.” The comedian says he hopes The Neighborhood will continue to push the envelope when it comes to discussing race next season. "We’re not HBO or anything,” he says. “But they (CBS) do want the show to be interesting for America and to have a bit of an edge, so we plan on trying to up that ante in the second season.”
