Your family is from Mexico, so for you, living in both of these worlds, what have these last five years been like for you on a personal level? Juan Toscano-Anderson: A lot of it makes me angry. But then again, I also have to realize that there are a lot of idiots in this world. And I stand firm on using that word. A lot of people are ridiculous people. A lot of people are evil people. I don’t understand how you could wake up and have hatred for a whole group of people. But then again, I grew up differently. I was raised differently. I was raised with a pure heart and by a pure person. I was never raised to hate anybody.
