Max apologizes to Helen, he tells her that he has a better proposition, she can be his partner, a co-Medical Director. She tells him to stop talking. She tells him that he can’t come up with a quick fix because systemic racism is not about him, but he wants answers, then hold still, be quiet and just really listen to the people that he says he wants to help. It is not revolutionary, outside the box, and it will not be a quick fix. If he can’t handle that, then he shouldn’t be helping.
