  2. "being an African wasn't easy in those days, but it was worth it." Well I agree that it wasn't easy being an African in those days but, you're talking like it's nothing!It wasn't just not easy, it was excruciating, hard work, painful! No break, no money in return nothing! My dad is from Nigeria in Africa and his ancestors went through all that. :(
