He is known for being highly opinionated in his interviews
concerning topics, such as race, economy, and politics. In an interview, he
once spoke on the economic conditions of black people, as well as
the majority of them being lazy:
||Let me help Black people
understand something. I don’t just talk this s**t. At least for two
hours out of my day I’m reading or watching Claud Anderson or John Henrik
Clarke. Go google them to see what they have to say about a
Black economic agenda, a Black socialization agenda. For those who say
why we need a Black agenda, I want you to get your dumb ass up in
the morning, look at them clothes and see if any of them are made
by Black people. No, they not. They made by little Brown people who
are underpaid and overworked. Then I want you to go to the refrigerator. You
didn’t buy that s**t from a Black coop, you bought it from a White
chain grocer, a corporation. So you didn’t produce none of
the food because they have taken over 30 million acres of land from
Black farmers over the past 70, 80 years. Then you go to the gas
station and you think he look like you, so you say "Hey wussup
brother." And he don’t respond to you because he ain’t on your
agenda. Why? Because he’s on the East Indian agenda.
He’s on the Saudi Arabian agenda. So it sounds to me
like, n****s, you need to make one. Nothing that you do during the
day benefits you. And if all you have to be proud of is a Black president. I
feel sorry for you lazy, worthless, shiftless n****s.
