Who governs what you say and how you say it?

The slaver.

The conqueror.

In the US, white people who say they govern what anyone says or how they say it are slavers or conquerors. They don’t like how you say something or what you say so they claim you have no right to say it. White people do…




Because the moment a child is born, a parent is born, too.
