Why I won’t apologize to this Afrocentrist

On 20 December 2023, I uploaded a video entitled “Is this the worst Afrocentrist on Twitter?”, in which I critiqued an Afrocentrist twitter user called Great House. On 15 March 2024 he made two tweets in which he attempted to defend two of his previous claims, and demanded an apology from me. In this video I explain why I won’t apologize to this Afrocentrist.
