    The black American man makes the black American woman maybe not superfluous but just a little kind of decoration. Not really important to turning around the wheels of the state. Well the white American woman has never been able to feel that way. No white American man at any time in our history in the United States has been able to feel that he didn't need that white woman right against him, shoulder to shoulder.

    Swap the words 'black' and 'white' and you have a quote from that 'phenomenal' racist, Maya Angelou.

    I agree with Maya Angelou that the current inscription on the MLK memorial makes King sound like an arrogant twit. However, I think the solution is EASY. Fill in the first two words (I WAS) so that the fix reads: A DRUM MAJOR FOR JUSTICE, PEACE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. It seems to me that filling in those two words would be an inexpensive and proper fix. Further, even if someone who carefully looked at the fix could barely make out the old “I WAS” it would be a point of conversation and history and a further tribute to a brilliant hero. Happy MLK weekend! - Jerry Gorski

They Went Home

They went home and told their wives,
that never once in all their lives,
had they known a girl like me,
But... They went home.

They said my house was licking clean,
no word I spoke was ever mean,
I had an air of mystery,
But... They went home.
