      Why you gotta make everything about race? I’m a black American, not Africaan-American. The very thing that you think brings us together, separates us. Your live matters, Black lives matter, ALL lives matter. Don’t buy into what democrats have told you, unless you want to spend your life on the plantation, sister..
