After running through the track, bullet holes pierced the backdrop and audio from Malcolm X’s 1962 “Who Taught You to Hate Yourself?” speech pierced through the sound system. “The most disrespected, unprotected, neglected person in America is the black woman. Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair? The color of your skin? The shape of your nose? Who taught you to hate yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet?” he questioned.
