My grandmothers house in Iran is exactly like this! The toilet outside, the fridge magnets, the tree, the broken glass for protection, miss her soo much :')

Total bullshit. First of all, there's no "road joy" in South Africa. South Africa has tons and tons of road murders. Secondly, if apartheid was so bad, how come Ramaphosa said "I want to tie the White people to trees and BEG them not to leave. We can't let the White people leave." Mandela was pretty good, but honestly, South Africa was probably better under De Klerk than it is now.

I thought gogo was the 91-year old legally blind great grandma who smelled him shit on her kitchen floor when he was a kid. In his book, he called this gogo "gran". Ps. I wanna see his mum and andrew and isaac. I bawled my eyes out while i was riding my motorbike and listening to him tell how his mum got shot in the head.
Love the onomatopoeia just like my Haitian grandma she brings Kreole to life when she speaks
We have those glasses in Haiti as well and the market is the same way

I'm from Botswana (Southern Africa). I wonder how African Americans feel when they hear an African language. Does it spark something within them that says 'My roots' or is it just, "Eh..." Just curious...

How wonderful his grandma is. She's been thru many things for sure and still able to adapt life nowadays. Great sense of humour (Trevor has it too). She doesn't live in bitterness. I'm sure she lives a happy life. Wow 😍
we had the same fruit magnet in my home (denmark) XD

Manager of white people. That is impressive. Turns out Trevor is a racist. (Dis vieslik om te sien, maar nie onverwags, aangesien hy 'n swart Suid-Afrikaner is. Wat meer ontstellend is, is dat hy in 'n wit land, Amerika, leef en wit mense beledig.) Translated: It is disgusting to see, but not unexpected, as he is a black South African. What is more disturbing, is that he live in a white country, America, and insults white people. What a f@cking hypocrite.

Just know the white people so you know you don't own south Africa
Old ppl are like children in that they will tell ya the truth! I love their honesty I wish we didn't grown out of it and waited so long to finally just say what we meant. Also grandmas always there with the stuff that needs to be fixed.

Talk about humility, respect and honor no matter how far you make it in life. Knowing the roots of what grew you into the man you are today and not only not forgetting it but truly appreciating it, is a rarity. Loved this segment. Your grandmother has see and lived through things no human should, which is why she's Strong.

That's crazy he just realized that he's a white man. He is very white compared to the true black South African people. Coco is amazing the world needs more Coco's.

Wow! What a window into life in South Africa, the times then and now. Most important what a great grandma with a wit that is addictive, reactions like clicks and whistles to highlight life! Blessings and good health to grandma and all loved ones. Now make a clip with mom and dad to tell of their experience in growing a child who was white in grandma's neighborhood, mixed in others and wanted to be a black bro on the way to America! Cheers!!
