A New Point of View

To people in the US African music may sound like a strange chant, or something of the sort, but in reality it is a way to stick together as a group. In reading “They Poured Fire on us From The Sky” and watching “God Grew Tired of Us” we learned that the lost boys were often looked down upon, or shunned because of their unique qualities and habits. Alepho says that people would compliment him and he would get angry and frustrated simply because he didn’t understand what they were saying. So I advise to keep an open mind towards other people too, and their individual cultures or “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” Try to get to know the people and culture before you make assumptions or say anything that might start disagreements or bruise self-esteem.
