EP 19 - "S***hole" Africa



In This Episode:

I woke up a few days ago to hear that some certain individual, had referred to my beautiful continent Africa and Haiti as a s***hole continent and country.

Instead of getting angry, I decided to respond with positivity. Which is what I have decided to do all of 2018. I will not give power to people who try to bring me down, and that’s exactly what we African’s need to do too.

I’m proudly African, and I love my s***hole continent!
