Kamau Bell: White Supremacy Is a System Where 44 out of 45 Presidents Are White

‘So we don’t have the groups, we don’t have people, we don’t have the wealth around us to fund a race for presidency’

RUSH EXCERPT:

BELL: “White supremacy is 44 out of 45 American presidents being white men. That’s the system that has — they just, those happened to be — it just happened to be — white men happened to be the best president. That’s the system putting thing in place like we can’t get access to the Ivy League inner circle conversations that white people can. So we don’t have the groups, we don’t have people, we don’t have the wealth around us to fund a race for presidency. We don’t have the sort of social circles where we would wind up in places where somebody would be like you should run for president here’s how we’ll make it happen. That’s the. So white supremacy.”
