My Brothas N' My Sistas

My Brothas N' My Sistas I detest racialism, because I regard it as a barbaric thing, whether it comes from a black man or a white man.

Stephen Bantu Biko (18 December 1946 – 12 September 1977) 
Today would’ve been Biko's 66th birthday had he not been murdered by the Apartheid police in South Africa from injuries he sustained after being tortured whilst in custody in Pretoria.
RIP
