Worshiping Maya Angelou

She preached negro genocide. She promoted infanticide and South Africa's murderous communist regime. She sided with the murderers.

She lent her beefy hands in service to Nelson Madela who wrote:
'Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro... Cuban internationalists have done so much for African independence, freedom, and justice. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of a vicious imperialist campaign designed to destroy the advances of the Cuban revolution. We too want to control our destiny... There can be no surrender. It is a case of freedom or death. The Cuban revolution has been a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people.' - Nelson Mandela

She spoke lovingly of convicted murderer Winnie Mandela: *"With our boxes of matches and our necklaces we shall liberate this country." (A necklace is a gasoline filled tire placed around the neck of a bound political prisoner and set aflame.)
- Winnie Mandela, April 13,1986

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'Poetess' Maya Angelou NEVER denounced convicted child murderer Winnie Mandela, nor did Maya Angelou remove her support for terrorist Nelson Mandela whose organization specialized in bombing railway stations & open-air markets. Indeed, Amnesty International NEVER petitioned for Nelson Mandela's release as Mandela (who pled guilty to 156 acts of public violence) refused to denounce the mindless bomb attacks against families that his organization [Umkhonto we Sizwe ~ abbreviated as M.K., Zulu for 'Spear of the Nation'] practiced.

Maya Angelou spoke on behalf of Planned Parenthood whose founder Margaret Sanger wrote: 'We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.' - Margaret Sanger's December 19,1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble,255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon's 'Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America' New York: Grossman Publishers,1976.

'Maya Angelou enthralls Planned Parenthood Luncheon'
By Vincent T. Davis - Express-News: April 15,2010
Poet, author and civil rights activist Maya Angelou shared her wisdom and inspiration Wednesday at the 2010 fundraiser luncheon for the Planned Parenthood Trust of San Antonio & South Central Texas at the Grand Hyatt.
The author of 'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings' drew applause and laughter from a sold-out crowd gathered to hear her speak. The event raised $300,000 to help provide health care and other assistance to San Antonio families in need.
President and CEO Jeffrey Hons said he was "humbled and overwhelmed" when he thought about what it would mean to the collective consciousness of San Antonio for nearly 1,200 people to hear Angelou speak.

With 79% of clinics in minority neighborhoods, Planned Parenthood performs more than 1,400 abortions on African-Americans every day.

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
