I just wanted to say thank you, one, to everyone who participated. Two for everyone who helped to organize this. There was a lot that went into it. (coughing) And my big hope is that we can continue this momentum. I always think of Nina Simone, she had a song called Mississippi Goddam.

And in that song, she talked about how people said, go slow, go slow. Well, this is not the point to go slow anymore. This is the point to drive forward, fast and furious. And I want the discussion to continue. My feeling is that I don't want it to be...

I don't... It's not saying that anyone feels this way, but I don't want it to be a fad. I want this to be something that people think about and discuss with their children and make a change. You know, sometimes people don't even realize when something is insensitive and sometimes when people are insensitive, I'm not saying that they're being racist or might even have right racist attitudes, but just always empathize with other people. Acknowledge if you have any sort of privilege. And you know, with that privilege, you know, you have to have some sort of responsibility.

And so I would just say, keep going forward. And this was a great, great event. I'm so happy to be a part of it. And thank you guys so much.
