Seriously, he speaks reason, truth, and factual data to the crazed nutcases. I feel so bad for him at the same time, being black and constantly called a traitor to his race or called an Uncle Tom by so many fellow black Americans who are forever stuck on the plantation. He needs to ditch Californication and rise wherever he is more appreciated. Honest dude, speaks from the heart. Engages opponents in a classy way, too. Those are true leadership qualities. One can only hope an honest soul still holds a high place in a deteriorating society.
