Encourages young people of color

 

Moving back to Columbus after 36 years, I remember reading an article in the paper or seeing on the news where Leroy Brooks made allegations that Harry attended a racist meeting.

 

Well looks like Leroy might have been right, because Harry decided to show his true colors.

 

 

Harry stated that Blacks have been dependent since slavery. No Harry, the slave owners were the ones dependent on the Blacks for our labor and our inventions to get rich.

 

They never wanted us to be educated or be able to vote, because that's one thing they could not take away. I encourage all Black and brown young men and women to get your education, register to vote. That will be your power.

 

Black and proud.
