Raised by an irresponsible mother during the Great Depression in the Jim Crow south, my father was on his own from the age of 13.
Everyone knows I'm black. I am who I am. This is the person that Lester Sr. and June Holt raised, and I make no apology for it. At the same time, I'm never going to pull a race card to get what I want. You can't have it both ways.
