In this VladTV Flashback from 2020, Freeway Ricky explained why he doesn't consider Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan to be black. According to Freeway Rick, the two basketball icons have managed to transcend race as a result of their on-court prowess and off-court marketability. While it didn't appear that Freeway Ricky was advocating for this type of racial transcendence, he makes a clear argument about how wealth and class can largely alter one's racial position.
