    The world knows many forms of slavery. The slavery from ‘Roots’ may be the most prominent but by no means to most prevalent, certainly not today. However, please keep in mind there are still millions of people living in slavery today. You just have to look more carefully.

    He’s a terrible interviewee. Yes we get that you’ve been doing press for a while but he made it seem as if trevor was forcing him to talk about stuff

    I won’t be surprised when this book turns into a screenplay and is made and distributed through Tyler Perry Studios or Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios.
