Comments

"I have a lot of experience with them. I grew up with white [people]. I have socialized with them and I’m used to them...in comparing them, I find white folks to be better because I have good connections and relationships with them... Am I against anyone? No. We’re all same….Whites are good [to me]...I have experience with both."
