"Stop labeling everything. Everyone identifies themselves as something. The problem with that is that it's divisive. We're all the same creature, we're all human. Instead of going by race, we should consider each other as the same creature and the same family. We wouldn't be so divided but together. That's why I don't like labels. Like, my daughter's half Hispanic but she doesn't look half Hispanic but white. Someone will come up to her and say that she's white but she's actually half Puerto Rican. A lot of people wouldn't notice that and that's why I don't like labels.   It's hard to get away from labels because everyone is proud of their heritage. When you go to fill out your paperwork, they always ask you about your race. They should just do away with all that shit. It doesn't matter if you're a Pacific Islander or Latino. It's just silly. When people do the Ancestry.com, you see that everybody has a little bit of everything in them. I mean, some white people have a little bit of African and Indian in them. You can't tell by looking at them. If you're going to fill out your paperwork, you should fill in the 'other' circle. All that stuff is superficial.  One of the happiest moments in my life is raising my kid. That's what we're here for. Regardless of what you believe in, the human race needs to continue. If you believe in God, it's your responsibility, as a believer, to propagate the human race. If you don't, it's still your obligation to propagate the human race. So, we're on this earth to raise our kids and it's not about ourselves but watching how they go through life. I feel like I passed up a bunch of stuff to raise my kid. It's not about me, it's about her. It's my chance to sit back and watch her story unfold. All I do is make sure to help her out and see to it that she finds her own way through life. " - Lex, Russell
