Xavier Woods recently spoke with Alfonso Castillo of Newsday for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On how pancakes becoming a part of The New Day’s act: “I said, ‘Well, if I’m a lumberjack, what do they eat? They eat flapjacks. “It was hilarious. So, we said the next week, ‘Are we going to do pancakes? Yeah, sure. Why not?’ And that’s where the pancakes came from. If there’s ever any source of contention or anything like that, I think that it’s a situation where you should take a look at yourself and think about how deep you are looking into something that’s not really there.”
On not wanting The New Day to be viewed under a racial lens: “All we want is a blank slate, and if people continue to refuse to give us one, then they’re doing nothing more than continuing to hold up the social constructs that we’re trying to break down.”
