Recently read a poem by Maya Angelou but can't recall title. It talked about products being bought without knowing where it originated from....something about TIMBERLANDS and the persong who owns it being the President of the KKK, NIKE, and others.....then pointing out that FUBU is created by Blacks but we run to buy Timberlands, etc....

Please, anyone knows the title of this poem???? Thank you

    Maya Angelou did not write the poem attributed to her. It has been debunked as an urban legend. See:
