They are taught ugliness

    Hi, my name is Olivia and I´m studying Willow Moon Pearce and his poem called ¨Taught Racism" for a school poem reading. After I read the poem I need to tell more about my author. However the problem is that his page does not tell much about Willow Moon Pearce, so I was wondering if someone that knows Willow or Willow himself could maybe reply back with some basic information about him. Thank you! (Report)Reply

    The colour or race of an individual does not matter, what counts is that one is born a worthy person. Brave utterances set aside for honest reflection. Thanks for sharing Willow and do remain enriched. (Report)Reply
