ASP.Net MVC 4 C# -- Roles.GetRolesForUser() "LIKE" statement ?

I have 20+ roles that start with "BUICK"
How can I get the below "LIKE" statement working ?

I am MVC4 simpleMembership with the below SYSTEM generated database tables.
  webpages_UsersInRoles
  UserProfile
  webpages_Membership
  webpages_Roles

                               if (User.IsInRole("BUICK_LeadMan")) --below works
                               -- trying to do this instead, but it fails --> if (Roles.GetRolesForUser().LIKE("BUICK"))
                                   {
                                       <li>@Html.ActionLink("About1", "About", "Home")</li>
                                   }

Hi finance_teacher;

You can try using the Linq method to achieve what you need.

if (Roles.GetRolesForUser().Any( u => u.StartsWith("BUICK")))
{ 
    <li>@Html.ActionLink("About1", "About", "Home")</li>
}
