Berhane Selassie (Bob Marley)

Blackheart not Blockheart

“I see a white system, a system I call Rome that we must overcome. I stand for the black, spelled b-l-a-c-k, not b-l-o-c-k, which means to block, but black, which is right. Anyone who accepts Selassie I in his heart is black. I don’t see white skin or black skin.”
