“You can’t talk about equal rights and land of the free when there ain’t no equal rights and nothing here is free.”
I was born in the Virgin Islands and although it’s a United States territory, the lifestyle there was more Caribbean than American. I definitely know because I was raised in Antigua. I came to America when I was in 6th grade. Now when you ask me about immigration, I’ll tell you it’s a topic that people brush under the rug too quickly. It is a very touching topic for many people and that’s why people don’t speak on it. Americans think they own America but they don’t because they did not build it. You can’t go into someone’s home and find treasure and automatically claim it’s yours. Although, that’s what America did. Immigrants built America and now they have to go through hell and back to come here for the same opportunities that’s offered to Americans. You can’t talk about equal rights and land of the free when there ain’t no equal rights and nothing here is free.
