their pens as swords and their notepads as shields. This is just what
we need in the world today. A perfect fit. The New Word Order."
Oyewole (The Last Poets)
I don't have prejudice against myself. My father was a white and
my mother was black. Them call me half-caste or whatever. I'm not
on nobody's side. I'm not on on the black man's side nor the white
man's side. I'm on God's side, the one who create me and cause me
to come from black and white. ......."BOB MARLEY"
