No matter what they are

African: My friends, European and Asian.
European: My friend African, how are you?
Asian: My friend African, I hope you’re well.
African: Alight! It is a beautiful day, my friends.
European: Sorry to jump all of the sudden.
African: Don’t need to be sorry, European.
Asian: I stand here before you as a prophet.
European: African, I wanted to ask you something.
African: What is it, European? About me?
Asian: European wanted to know about your kind.
African: My kind? I don’t have one kind, but –
European: You have more than one kind, yes?
African: I have lots of blacks, browns, and a few whites in Africa.
European: Just like mine in Europe, but the opposite, yes, African?
Asian: I have so many browns but do have those colours as well.
African: Well, my continent represents Africans.
European: No matter what colour they are?
African: Yes, no matter what they are, as long as…
Asian: As long as they are red blood like us?
African: As long as their generations are from Africa.
