“It is not surprising that the press involved failed to mention their share of the responsibility in the chaos. As for this horrible rumor that someone referred to a local man as a ‘bloody Indian,’ let me say this: I would never work with anyone that was derogatory towards another man’s race. My family is of mixed race.”
It doesn’t matter what the press was doing because they weren’t the ones pushing around children. You could throw a hundred photographers in my face and there’d never be a moment where I’d think to myself: “I really feel the need to beat up some kids and their parents.” I mean I might do it anyway, but I wouldn’t think about it. How else am I supposed to get their candy?
