Brown tells People's Every Day podcast he came across people in Texas "who are very blatant about like, 'I don't interact with Black folks. I don't interact with brown folks. I don't interact with y'all gays. You're in a dress. I don't understand this,' Vocal. Vocal. Vocal. To be very honest with you, this is the first time I've ever had people tell me after, 'I hated you.' Literally have said that twice now. And it's because no one has ever challenged them when it comes to their emotional or mental health. And then on top of that, and this is just me, I think that a lot of times these individuals have never been challenged by someone who is Black. And so you now have someone who's Black making you open up and talk about your feelings."
