Africa unite, world unite

Whats happening to the world.
My brothers & sisters what happened to the spirit of ubuntu ( humanity)
What happened to " umntu ngumntu ngabantu" (A person is a person through other people)
I'm sure this is not what my father Nelson krolihlahla Mandela & my uncle Martin Luther King fought for
This is not what my grandparents fought for. 
What happened to the saying it takes a nation to raise a child. 
Do u like destroying the future generation, abusing our mothers & sisters.
Come on maAfrica Amahle (beautiful Africa) go back to your roots
