While chatting on the Pod Save America podcast, Will opened up about times when he’s dealt with racist people.
He said, “I’ve been called [N-word] to my face probably five or six times. And fortunately for my psyche, I’ve never been called [N-word] by a smart person. I had never looked into the eyes of a racist and saw anything that I perceived as intellect.”
He added, “So I’ve always been encouraged that the process of education and understanding could alleviate some of the more dangerous and difficult aspects of racism that have unfortunately been embedded in the very fibers of our country.”
