I don’t like talking about this f–kboy cuz it gives him more power…but comments like #ShitholeCountries etc. are actually giving US more power. You can’t have Moses without Pharoah. 😏
I pray that we as Africans & people of the African Diaspora continue to work tirelessly to build more beauty in our land(s) so that no one can find any single reason to call our nations #ShitholeCountries. Let this be a catalyst for courageous leadership and righteous governance.
I’ve lived & worked in predominantly Haitian neighborhoods for more than half my life from Mattapan, Boston to East Flatbush, Brooklyn. I want to thank you 🇭🇹 for raising me via your Diaspora and teaching me more than a #ShitholePresident ever will
🇭🇹 was the First Nation in the African Diaspora to win its independence. It paved the way for freedom fighters not only in the Diaspora but on the Continent. 🇭🇹 will always be a beacon of light for me in the face of the neocolonialism that tries to create #ShitholeCountries
