What they really mean is.....Community Capital Funds to black businesses only!
I guess they think we are stupid to know what is really going on and what they really mean to say. Keep pushing the hate whitey narrative you know BLM even when it's anti American but yet they want the American dream. May borrow the money from Susan Rosenberg and see how far you get with that, after all she is head of BLM even though it has nothing to do with black lives.
