This video discusses Kevin O’leary, the white guy who referred to two black women as “cock roaches” on the CNBC show, “Shark Tank.” There is much to be said about this clip within the context of systematic racism, which has denied African Americans access to capital, as well as the fact that black women are called “ugly” by so many media outlets.

While O’leary’s remarks may have been innocent in his mind, the fact is that there is ugly and hurtful imagery associated with hte idea of a white guy referring to black women as cock roaches on television.
