I don’t like that word ‘discovery.’ … Sinatra was the first one to call Ray Charles a genius, he spoke of ‘the genius of Ray Charles.’ And after that everybody called him a genius. They didn’t call him a genius before that though. He was a genius but they didn’t call him that. … If a white man hadn’t told them, they wouldn’t’ve seen it. … Like, you know, they say Columbus discovered America, he didn’t discover America.
