I am sick of him talking about me, I am sick of him saying, 'this is a coon, this is a buffoon.' I am sick of him talking about black people going to see movies.

American Indian and Alaska Native and Black (12 percent) as well as American Indian and Alaska Native and White and Black (10 percent) were also common combinations reported among the Native population."
