“The other 75 percent are in the class that would be the large class of folks who might want to do something. And there were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution and to protect and defend who didn’t do it, who were in the insurrection. So, it does concern me, (inaudible)—”
If we really want to get rid of racism in America, we’ve got to get rid of all of it. Not just racism against people of color, but white people as well. It’s a two-way street. Likewise, if we want to get rid of sexism in America, we’ve got to get rid of it against men as well.
