A Japanese of Ghanaian descent born in America. The existence of this guy alone should solve racism.
I find it really worrying that many of us Africans do not know that we are truly the indigenes of this planet. Our ancestors have been everywhere; Australia, Asia, the Americas, the Middle East, you name it.
Born in the US, to a Japanese father, by a Ghanaian mother…3 continents in one man. He should just go to school in the UK…Then he will be nicknamed UN.
The black gene is powerful.
