1 – Who is Mr. T?
"So you want to meet Mr. T, personal and up close. The man with the gold, not just around his neck but also deep down in his heart…
So here is the unadulterated truth, told, written and spoken in such terms that even a fool can understand what I’m talking about…
It might not grab you straight off, but when you read it through, you’ll know something about this character, this Mr. T…
You’ll learn how I went from rags to riches, from welfare to faring well and from the ghetto to the get more…
Everything I have done was in the name of survival, so don’t try to question my judgment on any certain occasion but put yourself in my position at the time of the decision…
My hairstyle is from Africa, it’s from the Mandinka tribe, the Mandinka warriors, a proud people… The gold chains are a symbol that reminds me of my great African ancestors, who were brought over here as slaves with iron chains on their ankles, their wrists, their necks and sometimes around their waists.
I turned my chains into gold, so my statement is this:
The fact that I wear gold chains instead of iron chains is that I am still a slave, only my price tag is higher now.
I am still bought and sold by the powers that be…but this time they pay me on demand, millions and millions of dollars for my services. Yes, I am a slave in this society, but I am free by God…
Read on, open your heart, enjoy the book and, most important, go in peace, my brothers and sisters.
