On July 4, Colin Kaepernick talked about his trip 'home' to Ghana

If the NFL is waiting for Colin Kaepernick to give in to some ridiculous notion that he must tell the world he’s focused on playing football and nothing else, that’s not going to happen.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
