When the pandemic hit, choreographer and dance teacher Lizzi Gee found herself out of work.

That post exemplifies the root of the problem - a historical legacy of centuries of propaganda based on the premise of European racial supremacy. It portrays the white colonial master that is the savior to the ever thankful poor black slave.
