Elliot Anderson:
So, yes, we're different, you and I. You want to submit that? Submit it. We have different skin colors. Is that the first thing I notice when I see a black man, the color of his skin? Yes. Submit away. Because I can go ahead and submit that that's the first thing you see when you see a white guy. Now, I don't know why that is any more than I know why when I see a good looking woman the first things I notice are her breasts, because I do. But if I move on to my next thought quick enough, I'm not a pervert, alright? I'm not a bad guy. I'm just mildly flawed. It's the same thing with race. It's not my first thoughts that count, it's my second, third, and fourth thought, and each and every case I'm in, it comes down to the same thing: the action and interaction I'm having with the person that I'm interacting with!

Transcript:
You've wanted to ever since
Rowena first dragged you into this.
So yes, we're different, you and I.
You want to submit that? Submit it.
We have different skin color.
Is that the first thing I notice when I
see a black man, the color of his skin?
Yes. Submit away.
Because I can go ahead and submit
that it's the first thing you see
when you see a white guy.
Now I don't know why that is
any more than I know why
when I see a good-looking woman,
the first thing I notice
are her breasts. Because I do.
But if I move onto
my next thought quick enough,
I'm not a pervert, all right?
I'm not a... I'm not a bad guy.
I'm just... I'm just mildly flawed.
It's the same thing with race.
It's not my first thought that counts,
it's my second,
third and fourth thought.
And each and every case I'm in,
it comes down to the same thing:
the action and interaction I'm having
with the person
that I'm interacting with.
The interaction I've had with Reggie,
in case you haven't noticed,
hasn't been all that great.
And I don't need a math tutor to know
that it doesn't make me a racist
just because he's a crack addict.
That column doesn't add up.
It just simply totals him out as a...
...a drug-addled criminal,
a liar and a...
...a thief with no moral compass.
He may be able to play you,
fool his mother,
may be even able to
get one over here on Judge Cummins.
But he can't fool me, because I see him
for exactly what he is.
And to this day, he's never once
apologized or shown one bit of remorse
to me or my wife
for the death of our daughter.
All right?
His mother wants to
mollycoddle him, fine.
The whole world wants to treat him
like a wounded, put-upon child,
then do it.
I don't really care.
I just don't want him infecting Eloise.
So, no, Jeremiah,
I'm not racially prejudiced,
I just don't happen to want your
little nephew's broken-down black ass
anywhere near my granddaughter.
What's your next question?
I don't think I have one.
