you know young folks who are marginalized, who are in minority groups to be able to see that they can accomplish things when white supremacy has convinced them and their parents and their grand parents for, you know, generations that they're not capable of leadership. I think that is important. I also think that we have moved to a point where economic conditions are so critical. Um, and you know, economic despair for for folks all over the country are so critical that we have to focus on policy next. So if you're leadership hinges on you just being a black face and a high place and it's not ideologically sound, if you are not devoted toe, you know, providing a riel affordable housing, that's the issue. We deal with the New York City all the time. People say it's affordable. It's not really affordable. They're just kind of giving these giveaways to developers. Just create more or, you know, market rate housing. You say you know that you want to see, you know, black folks just have small businesses. But what about like the masses of working class black people? If you are not focused on, you know, giving folks really, really material benefits. Like, at this point, I do not care. I really don't. I do not have, you know, that central mental feeling in part? Because I think I had the privilege of seeing it all of my life. Um, but also because I've seen so many of my people struggle, and I'm tired of seeing that too.
