SuperNegro of the Day – Barry Sanders

I, the man of color, want only this: That the tool never possess the man. That the enslavement of man by man cease forever. That is, of one by another. That it be possible for me to discover and to love man, wherever he may be.”

For all the children seemingly stuck in a system that they can never break out of, this post is for you. Never let the tool possess you. The tool rather it be school, poverty, social injustice, class, race, or ethnicity, always know your worth and love yourself. These #SuperNegro post will highlight some of the most talented African-Americans to ever grace the world by entertaining the majority. No sort of Black Face can imitate the beauty and grace of being black. Be proud for you have the will to endure in a system that does not want you to be great.
