Back 4 more. Just love this jazz infused ...rap n gospel plea for self pride &respect& unity to make positive changes& he is not advocating negativity towards other ethnic groups. The majority of Black people are a mixture of African, white Europeans and Native American. That is the reality of the African slave trade that lasted 100's of years. Africans were taken to North America&Sout h America and Europe. So, wherever YOU R...B PROUD. People who are world travelers accept this TRUTH!!!!!!! ! Th
