"See how proud and eager we are to “work” for our Colonizers. Now they don’t even have to “force” us. We have been conditioned to love our “oppressors” that we jump at every opportunity to worship them. We see the son of the President of Liberia Weah playing for USA.
"The son of the only African man to ever win the World Best player doesn’t even represent his fatherland doesn’t even try to help Liberia FA. Why should his father the President invest in sports for Liberians when his son can enjoy the best opportunity in life right."
