Dave said that posting a black box on Instagram doest help anyone and said “Let me be very clear… we have to get to a place in this country where it doesn’t matter the color of your skin. If you see a police officer walking down the street, you don’t think you’re going to be treated differently because you’re black or white. We have to get there.”

Dave Portnoy’s video has been viewed 900k times on Twitter and ended the video “So while on the outside, yeah, no-brainer noble cause, I don’t think really people thought it out. It is just like a quick, ‘Hey, I support Black Lives Matter. I put up a black box. I’m doing my part,’ but you’re really doing nothing. And I don’t think it’s intentional and I don’t even know that I’m right. But I think people need information.”
