Now, Adams says that ‘His words affected a lot of people, you know, myself included. I think by him taking ownership, and not just saying issue an apology and just going back to work the very next day like nothing even happened speaks volumes.’
She went on to talk about his apology and pointed out the parts that really resonated with her.
‘He said, ‘By excusing historical racism I defended it’ which is the total truth, and the fact that he called it out and owned up to it and he acknowledges that, really means a lot to me. Also the fact that he said, ‘This isn’t just a moment but a commitment to a much greater understanding I will actively make each day’ also meant a lot because it is not just a moment, like how Blacks Lives Matter is not just a trending topic on Instagram – it is a thing that is taking place every single day we should actively try to partake in and better.’
