“They don’t teach us that in school, they don’t tell us about ourselves, they tell us about the Queen of England. And you know, they tell us a bunch of stuff that has no significance to us that shows us, that puts in our head that, we have no power. All we are is inferior to these people.
Talking about him wanting to know the truth about our history before slavery and be our white man came.”

“I also want the truth of our history before slavery, and before our white man came and before all that’s told, this is not how it always was.
