Ken Williams said this summer that he had reason to believe things would be different.

In an emotional interview posted by the White Sox, the team's executive vice president and architect of the 2005 World Series team shared stories of his own experiences with racism as the United States wrestled with these all-important issues following the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis.
