Jarrett: I'm thinking of a time where we were in a social setting, and a white male decided to call me "my nigga." I knew this person, but he wasn't my friend. I'll love them regardless if they're white, black, yellow, green — it doesn't matter." Our country has some catching up to do.

My plan is that this country continues to have multicultural babies until they're all a shade of brown. In the beginning his mom asked me, before we went out, "Oh, what about your hair? So I grew up with the mentality that we need more liberties. We're both the type who would leave a fancy, romantic restaurant to go get a slice of pizza.
