“Because I have my own show, I have a responsibility to say things that people need to know,” Ruffin said on her Peacock show Friday night, per The Wrap. “That aren’t being said. It’s a cool opportunity that I don’t take lightly. There are big, obvious truths that no one wants to say on TV. But I will. Now, just a few minutes before we started taping this show, Kyle Rittenhouse, the man accused of shooting three people during a Black Lives Matter protest, was declared not guilty on all charges." She added: “It’s not ok for the judicial system to be blatantly and obviously stacked against people of color. It’s not ok for there to be an entirely different set of rules for white people... But I don’t care about Kyle Rittenhouse. I don’t care about that racist judge. And I don’t care how f*cked up that jury must be...White people have been getting away with murder since time began. I don’t care about that. I care about you. And I can’t believe I have to say this, but you matter."
