Help ‘Em Come To My Page

“It took me long time to trust white people. Really long. Because they were commanding us, telling us they were the bosses and stuff. It took a while. But now I’ve dealt with my Residential school and I can talk to people, but I also let em know.

That’s how I get comfortable with white people, help ’em come to my page.”
