Compromise is a bitch.
Because once you get stuck, it becomes very difficult to untangle yourself from that type of situation. Once you become the voice of the Corporate you become a different creature.
Alot of men & women struggle with the identity crisis that takes place with black people in America, basically black people in the western world. It is not just about "who am I?" but how to be "what I am" in that particular western paradigm and still remain true to yourself. They need courage & protection & the people to defend them in doing what they would instinctively do, if they felt safe enough to do.
