It’s not like the government was like‚ ‘We’re going to send white people to jail and we’re gonna take white people’s houses and we’re taking white people’s money and things white people stole.’ Government was like‚ ‘no‚ let’s move forward okay. Clean slate. Let’s move forward. Let’s get this country to where it needs to be. The only thing we’re going to take away is this racist word. That’s all.”

WARNING: The video contains offensive language.
