America's Quandary In A Nutshell - Owsley County Kentucky...Delta Mississippi Blacks


Owsley County Kentucky
..Delta Mississippi Blacks
Got so much in common
Still so much..out of whack

...Same lack of income
Identical wants and needs
Pitted one against the other
'Tis the moment bigotry breeds

That divide and conquer
Their sole deliberate aim
Democrats and Republicans
And hatred's old 'skin' game
