Toussaint Liberator, a raggea musician from the USA made this song dedicated to Recep Tayyip Erdogan – in response to the occupy movement and police violence…also in response to Erdogan’s speech in which he said “they [referring to protesters] think we are illeterature, ignorant, bottom layer, people who should be content with what’s given to them, in short, [they think] we are niggers” [zenci in Turkish, instead of siyah which would be translated as black]
