blamed the whites for the abnormality.

“To think that some of our teachers flogged us back then in school for speaking our language. calling it vernacular. Can you imagine? You speak your own language you get flogged. All those teachers should be ashamed of themselves. Oyibo people really messed up our brains,” he wrote.
