“I want to be fairly and I’m a human being. I don’t think I look better than everybody else. “I’m a regular person and I don’t expect to be treated with special privileges. I believe that you should greet the janitor with the same respect you give to the CEO.”
Likewise, Tammy added,
“Treat everybody fairly. You sat there and you racially profiled me. It’s crazy because I see a lot of black and brown people … we go through it a lot”
