The statement reads, “We’ve never had to worry about preparing our kids for different rules of law or what might happen if we’re pulled over in the car. We don’t know what it’s like to experience that life day in and day out. We can’t imagine feeling that kind of fear and anger. We’re ashamed that in the past we’ve allowed ourselves to be uninformed about how deeply rooted systemic racism is.”

The statement further mentions, “We’ve been teaching our children differently than the way our parents taught us. We want to educate ourselves about other people’s experiences and talk to our kids about everything, all of it… especially our own complicity.”

“We talk about our bias, blindness, and our own mistakes. We look back and see so many mistakes that have led us to deeply examine who we are and who we want to become. They’ve led us to huge avenues of education. We’re committed to raising our kids so they never grow up feeding this insane pattern and so they’ll do their best to never inflict pain on another being consciously or unconsciously”, the statement reads.

They also mentioned the reason why they decided to donate the large sum of money to the NAACP Legal Defence Fund. They said, “That’s the least we can do to honor not just George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and Eric Garner, but all the black men and women who have been killed when the camera wasn’t rolling.”

For the unversed, Ryan and Blake also donated $ 1 million back in March to million to Feeding America and Food Banks Canada. They also donated $400,000 to the hardest-hit hospitals in New York amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
