“I want every US presidential candidate…to give me a list of what they are going to in order to address institutionalized racism. I want to know what regulations, I want to know the policies, I want to know the data. And I want to be able to review your plan. Give me a plan for that. How are we going to address inequity in education? How are we going to address the fact that we have books written for and by white men? How are we going to start putting things in that highlight more than slavery when it comes to Black people?”
