Spoken word artist Dow Kevin Buford explains why he’s so angry at the New York Post’s decision to publish a controversial cartoon and what made him come out to Thursday’s protest.
“I’m here because I’m angry at that racist cartoon that the Post put in the paper. I also brought my poem because I want people to see that it’s a Black man that invented the advance printing press that they print that rag with. It’s a Black man that invented the elevator that goes upstairs to those buildings. It’s a Black man that invented a heater for that building. Black man who invented practically everything and we need to know that."
