LOS ANGELES -
"It's my face as a child in the commercial...Me when I was little. Why would I want a white child to play me? I'm a black American. I'm a black American. I'm proud to be a black American. I am proud of my race. I am proud of who I am. That's like you wanting an oriental person to play you as a child. Does that make sense? Please people stop believing these horrifying stories."
