AFRICANGLOBE - Tell your white friends, neighbors and coworkers that whites in England, France, Belgium, Holland, Portugal and in other European countries are imperialist devils that spread colonialism worldwide, stole land, not crab legs, and raped women of color any time they saw fit and see what response you get.

March On Washington: Dr. King’s Dream And Obama’s Realpolitik
