What’s the problem, white people. Not every single individual white person, but in the macro, in the aggregate, who are the ones that who are making these decisions, white people. Who are the ones who won’t change their decision-making, white people. Who are the ones that only do anything in a different way when it comes to these matters at the threat of litigation, white people.”

I need to ask you all, what is it that can change? You are the ones who know these white people, you are the ones who hang out with these white people, you are the ones who know the ones who pretend to be good people and make all the same decisions as everybody else,” Bo further stated.
