    This thing called cocoa, it has a flavour of love for it and human anguish! But all is utilised by someone who is greedy, who his/her value to human dignity isn't etched in his/her mind. it is painful to still see slavery at such a time,such a century, where civilization is passing us slowly. A world that is growing to ease the tensions of racism, radicalism, rigidity and absurdness. you would not expect a human to claim riches at this time yet they are a result of slavery, it's awkwardness, it is a train of human backwarsness. it is sad. But with you,me and all those others collectively who are respector of human, who value human dignity, Slavery is dying, it is being connered, soon we'll kill a burry it.
