“Yes. I believe that any person with color from back in the day that went through slavery. … It’s a matter of everybody being equal.”

Rory Perkins


“Yes, because we built this country and I feel that it’s overdue.”

Kim Zinsmeister


“I think we should. We struggled a lot and things have been taken away and we deserve it. It is owed to us.”

“Absolutely. I think some of the other ethnicities have been getting that. The Indians … and also the Japanese. … I think African Americans should get theirs.”
