'Big Brother' Contestant Speaks (Almost)

In his first press interview since viewers booted him off CBS’s reality show “Big Brother” last Thursday, former New Black Panther Party official Hiram Ashantee — or, youth counselor William Collins, as he is known to TV viewers — refused to say whether or not he still shared the hate-mongering party’s views. Asked at a TV critics news conference over the weekend if he regards white people and Jews as the enemy, Collins replied, “I consider all people who are evil or unrighteous or against God as my enemy.” On the show Collins had riled his fellow contestants by staging pranks, as well as instigating heated debates on race. As for being voted off “Big Brother,” Collins held a copy of the Bible when he told journalists, “There wasn’t enough mental stimulus for me to want to stay there.”
