“If you ask a white person, the thing that will keep them from going is being told that they are not white, and they might be thinking, ‘well, I’m white.’ When that happens, how do you turn around and say that we’ve got to talk about race because that’s what this generation needs to hear? It has to be, ‘we don’t look like other white people. We’re not this kind of racist, racist, racist society in general.
