* On Indian History: “Indian people were taken to South Africa as slaves. Who the hell uses an Indian slave? Do I look physically ready to do hard labour? My people don’t work that hard. Give us a calculator-we’ll do your taxes, man.”
* On Growing Up in a Multicultural Society : “When I was a kid, I wanted to be Jamaican so bad, I started dressing like a Jamaican. I started wearing a little red, yellow and green belt. I started talking like a Jamaican. I started listening to Reggae music. I started having kids I didn’t know about….”
* On Inter-Racial Marriage: “Hook up a Jamaican with an Italian: they can have little Pastafarians. I could hook up with a Jewish girl: we could have little Hinjews. You get a woman from the Philippines, a guy from Holland: little Holapenos. A guy from Cuba, a woman from Iceland: little Ice Cubes. A French and a Greek: Freek. A German and a Newfie: little Goofies. It’s going to happen.”
