XXL: Do you have a personal story of experiencing bigotry?
No, because y’all would be covering me going to jail. It’s not about being tough; it’s about having a spine. I truly believe it’s a sign of the times; it's really soft, everything going on is soft. It’s too passive. It needs to be a stand at times and now you don’t have anybody to lead the stand. Who’s going to stand up to what this man said? You’re going to wait on the NBA? There’s no pressure outside of conversation, there’s no drastic punishment. There’s no pressure because all we [are] going to do is talk about it. Same with Trayvon Martin and Florida; the community leaders didn’t do anything of substantial measure to make people feel pressure in doing anything. It's so easy to persecute each other, but you don’t want to stand up against bad laws? The Clippers players don’t want to stand up against racist owners? If you listen to this man, he sounded like he was talking about slaves. That shit was crazy. To see that and they took the court, I can’t believe it.

I’m just disappointed in the players; I really look up to Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, all those guys. A lot of kids do. A lot of black kids got the wrong message with them guys playing [Sunday]. It became [that] it was okay. Turn your practice jersey inside out, but your regulation jersey is showing. Everybody saying they're playing for a championship; they don’t even get the trophy, the owner gets the trophy. If they step out on the court, the owner makes money. The only way to hurt people with power is to hurt their pockets and they could have actually done that.
