Mozart was a Moor! This is what Mozart actually looks like. The image was found in a radio station in Belgium. The Moors (so-called 'Black' people) brought Classical Music to Europe. Not only that but when you read the REAL bios of him, he’s described as having brown skin, “negroid features” (broad, wide nose, etc) and wiry hair.

One of the most moving and thought provoking pictures I've ever seen. Blessing to those who are able to overlook blatant ignorance. I pray that one day we will be able to move past prejudice and learn to celebrate one another.  Life is too short to be ruled by hate.
