As a result of you already know, who ain’t gonna defund the police officers? White neighborhoods and wealthy neighborhoods. In order that perception they preserve announcing that … I’m like, wait a minute. Who’re Black folks intended to name — Ghostbusters? — when now we have crime in our neighborhoods? We want police reform. Like I say, White folks — particularly wealthy White folks — they’re at all times gonna have police officers, so we want to forestall that ‘defund’ or ‘abolish the police officers’ crap,” he stated.
