Tonight, he’s brought some of Earth’s biggest stars to his home. Kanye West is home … Dave Chappelle is home. This is Canada. This is what black Americans call the finish line. Niggas fled slavery all the way to this place. And tonight we feel free in my nigga house. My God, man. “

I believe this event will not only raise awareness of our cause, but prove to people everywhere how much more we can accomplish when we put our pride aside and unite. â
