America will have to do a MAJOR systemic change in order to dismantle racism. A lot of this work is economic. We need 14 trillion dollars invested to Black Americans in a generation.

The broader issue with US Black people will be distributing the funds. This is a sensitive topic between ADOS and Black immigrants but we need to give ourselves the space to imagine a future built on a new system that would serve us.
