-- In-depth Questions --
Q1: Never interviewed before.
Q2: Never been charged with any crimes. Never been employed by government.
Q3: No restricting ailments.
Q4: Started getting serious about politics at 14, believed some “out there” things at that time because he didn’t know what he was thinking about. He is now more mature in his beliefs. When he was younger his beliefs were more “angry.” He was a nationalist but he couldn’t really put a name on it. He saw that people of his skin color were being put at fault for things. His family experienced discrimination for their race. He became more quiet/careful - now people actually listen to him. Nothing has really changed about his beliefs. Nationalism hasn’t changed, neither has what he acknowledges about his identity. He became a nationalist by seeing that it was wrong to be one, if the media disliked it then there must be something right with it.
Q5: He saw a news article on the organization about the Philadepphia action. Liked the organization and presentation. He knew that when the media says something negative that means they were the opposite.
