Once riding in old Baltimore,
Heart-filled, head-filled with glee,
I saw a Baltimorean
Keep looking straight at me.
Now I was eight and very small,
And he was no whit bigger,
And so I smiled, but he poked out
His tongue, and called me, 'Nigger.'
I saw the whole of Baltimore
From May until December;
Of all the things that happened there
That's all that I remember.

My sweet grandmother (white) recited that poem to me shortly before she passed away. She learned it as a child in school. She knew what love was and only hated hate.
Not only do I feel dumber for trying to verbalize what you try to type, but I'm slowly losing the will to live. I do not want to live in a world where people like you are given the opportunity to work or have a say in anyone's future, let alone reproduce.
You are completely racist! This is an article about how African Americans are abused and you make a joke about it? NOT FUNNY!
It's not a joke, this was meant to express that the writer's vacation was ruined and that he was deeply impacted
