Can We Send All “I Am Not My Ancestors” Shirts to Mars?

After watching “Judas and the Black Messiah” I came to the conclusion that I’m just a regular black person, doing regular black people shit. And that’s because our ancestors and nem weren’t regular. In fact, they were so irregular, that the worlds greatest superpower, the United States of America, was petrified of their power That power ain’t just Black power.
