Billionaire businessman and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban took to Twitter on Monday to share thoughts about the national response to the killing of George Floyd. While sharing a post written by Emerson College President M. Lee Pelton, Cuban stated that white people face a “moral imperative.”

“Dear White People: We are the ones that need to change,” Cuban posting read. “This is not one man’s story. This is almost every black man’s story. Which is why the problem is ours. We need to find OUR way to change what we do. There is no quick fix. It’s a moral imperative.”

Later, in response to one Twitter user calling on him to elaborate on what he will change, Cuban explained his stance.

“I used to think treating people equally meant treating them the same. Like it was a math equation,” Cuban said. “I was wrong. I’m learning that treating people equally means treating them with equal amounts of respect, for who they are and what they have experienced.”

Earlier on Monday, Cuban also attended a memorial vigil for Floyd held outside the Dallas Police Department. He explained that he wanted to attend the event in order to get a better sense of what the African-American community goes through. Mavericks players Jalen Brunson, Maxi Kleber, Justin Jackson, and Dwight Powell also attended the vigil.

Cuban, famed for his appearance on the popular reality show, "Shark Tank," has a sizeable Twitter following of 7.9 million. His postings received roughly 19,000 likes.
