Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently sat down with Katie Couric to chat about a whole slew of controversial topics.

In the new Yahoo! interview — released on Monday — the journalist asked the political figure how we can eliminate the racial divide within our country, especially the far-too-often police shootings of unarmed black men.

The 83-year-old responded:

"I think there are serious efforts to educate the police and local communities to the importance of rapport. … We are dependent on police officers for our security, but they should also be cognizant of the community that they serve."

But the conversation quickly changed to Colin Kaepernick's powerful protests against the National Anthem.

When asked her opinion on the San Francisco 49ers player's strong stance against the song, the New York native straight-up SLAMMED the sports star's demonstration, saying:

The statement, signed by Your Friends at Ben & Jerry's, reads:

"Systemic and institutionalized racism are the defining civil rights and social justice issues of our time. We've come to understand that to be silent about the violence and threats to the lives and well-being of Black people is to be complicit in that violence and those threats."

Twitter was on fire immediately after the political statement was posted, with many on a sugar rush of celebration over the company's firm stance on the controversial issue.

Of course, the declaration didn't sit well with everyone, as many racists from the opposing side had some not-so-sweet responses.
