Recently, David told his fans that if you don’t play the game, you cannot win.
‘If You Don’t Play The Game You Can’t Win I was having a discussion yesterday with a colleague about our ongoing struggle for equal rights. I found it ironic that we have to ask for something that’s ours! Yes, we were born with and have equal rights to justice, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness! So how ironic is it that we have to fight for something that is ours already,’ David began his important message.
Fans offered him gratitude for continuing to pose all kinds of inspiration and useful messages on social media.
