“Our young black babies are putting their freedom and lives on the line to try to change s**t,” he continued. “And if you are a black business that is destroyed and you are not insured, I’m starting a fund with 25k of my own money to help rebuild. And I’m asking my friends in fashion to donate as well,” he said.
