And I know that the police have attacked, and that America is racist in general. And I understand that when we came to say ‘Black Lives Matter’, that thought felt good to us together as a community.”

“When the idea of ​​Black Lives Matter came up, it brought us together as people. Now, yeah, there were some things [con] the destination of the money, there were some things where it was used to push us to vote Democrat. There were people behind it… That’s what happened, but the general sentiment… When I said that, when I was questioning the death of George Floyd, it hurt my people – it hurt black people.

“So I want to apologize [por] They are hurt. Because God has shown me right now, through what Adidas is doing, and what the media is doing… that I know what it feels like right now to have a knee on your neck. So thank you, God, for humbling me and letting me know what it really feels like. Because how could the richest black man be humiliated, if not to become a billionaire in front of the whole world for one opinion?”
