We can't have shrines. Had Baldwin been white, they'd have the house encased in gold somewhere. All over the world, there's a white something or another on a horse, in some statue form or another. Why don't the two rich black people of the world buy the house and make a museum or something? Whites don't need another condo. They need to go somewhere and live in forests like they were intended.

I'm sure you know the answer to that.
