“I’m a firm believer that racism is ignorance, it’s something that’s taught,” Anthony shared at the press conference.

He added, “A child is not born racist and I feel that as a generation we need to get out of the way of the coming generation and allow them to be the best that they can be and not allow our sh-t to convolute their view of the world.”
