"Now it's the monkeys who rule us", says white Colombian woman speaking of black Francia Elena Márquez

Francia Elena, you are a real lioness. All self-identified black people congratulate and encourage you for your fight, your courage, your tenacity, your self-sacrifice and your sense of justice for all. At your young age, you are already a hero to us.
