RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
MATTHEWS: “That’s the picture I like. I hate talking ethnically, but I am going to do it. The white player who puts his hand here over his chest with his left hand so he can put his other hand on his fellow player.”

MATTHEWS: “A white crowd.”

It has to do with his lizard brain that looks at his audience that said I know what they’re going the respond to in Huntsville. He wasn’t counting on the brotherhood. He didn’t know it would spread.”
