doesn't mean they are from a certain place.

I'm all African pride whatever, you see it
I'm like yeah, but I'm also from the sidelines
'cuz I'm not black.
'Cuz I get it, it's more about black pride
than African pride, but I do identify as African 'cuz I am.
- So my next question is do you identify as Arab?
- We're Arabs and African.
- Okay, I think I have a country in mind.
Your country is Tunisia.
