18…….nice try, kid. Your illusions are about to be shattered

Do you care to elaborate on what you mean by illusions? Is there anything in this podcast that suggests this kid is living in a world of illusions. He is far from naive and you are ignorant for saying something after obviously not listening

Okay so my comments got deleted. Not sure why so I’ll be more polite. Do you care to elaborate on what you mean by illusions? The kid is obviously wise beyond his years, is there anything he said that suggests he’s naive?

I moved to Brentwood in 2000. I have never ever heard of the KKK in Brentwood in any way. What does he mean they were active in Brentwood? How did I miss it? It’s almost like he wasn’t old enough to really what Brentwood was like 20 years ago.
