Yay, a side-by-side comparison :D
"For me, the tattoos, the beard, the bald head-it’s just an image that gives a little tilt to everything. At first, a lot of people are a little standoffish, but when they get to meet me, they’re surprised to see that I’m a cool guy, that I have my head on my shoulders."
“What do you see yourself doing 10 years from now?”
“Ten years from now, I want to run an uplifting program. There are a lot of people from the inner city just like me. White, Black, Hispanic-it doesn’t matter. They often follow a certain path, a certain image. People say that if you’re black, by the time you’re 25, you’re either dead or in jail. I would like to break that stereotype.
In 10 years, I want to be a spokesperson for the young people coming up. I want to show them that it doesn’t have to end on the corner, or selling drugs, or doing the opposite of what you should be doing. You can be from wherever you’re from, and still do the right thing. You don’t have to necessarily do what’s in front of you. I’ve tried it. We’ve all tried it. I was lucky enough not to get into trouble, to get out of it and keep moving forward. It wasn’t for me. I learned that fast. You move on, you get a job, and slowly but surely you separate yourself. That’s the key. It’s always been something I take a lot of pride in.
I see young kids walking around, talking loud, swearing. Guys, that’s not the image you want. You don’t have to do this. I know you watch a lot of movies and a lot of TV. But 10 years from now, when you look back at your 16-year-old selves, you’re going to laugh at yourselves. You’ll think, I was a real asshole; I was a real fool. You don’t want that image to stick with you when you’re 25, and 30, and 40.
So, with my tattoos, you can think what you want, but when you walk up to me and shake my hand, you’ll say, Alright, this guy has his head on his shoulders.”
