"We've suffered a lot of psychic damage. The problem is that we don't know our own history. I saw the news of a Martin Luther King Day parade on television and they asked a little black girl what King meant to her, and she said 'Martin Luther King, is he a ballplayer?' Maybe this president can help us start valuing ourselves again. We're going to have to see a lot of Magic Johnsons come down and put money into South L.A. I'd love to have 103rd Street and Central Avenue to go back to, to see the Club Plantation, the Club Alabam and the Dunbar Hotel happening again. If someone put money in, I think people would come."
