A Word To An Affrican....American....Kid

the battery of the

'Racism....what is up man....racism segregation..'

wont hold...
it is dying....out....
and we do not sell
and make
these type of old stuff batteries....

your only two exits....are:

to travel to Africa from any direction.....
and don't ask me how...when....and where to have the money for the adventure ....just take a back bag and go....

your second exit....
i mean your real... future....
not African future....

not african american furture....

is to know how respond to any condition without filtering or stereotype...

cause we are all our conditions, denials, and our setbacks....


please kid,
plan to go once in your north pole, south pole...Alaska....
go to China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Asia, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, New guinea....New America, new places, new planet....just stop the old stuff...stop the denial and setbacks

and try only to explore....
