  • I find this sort of "poetry" pompous and self important. I hate the spoken word/slam poetry intonations. This is not good poetry and you all know it, you are just virtue signaling by acting like it is good. I hate our society.

  • A White Dutchman was forced to cease translation of her poem...because of his skin color. The BEST/WORST (depends on your point of view) racists I have ever seen or heard, are Democrats in the United States. Black Democrats are equally as racist as White Democrats. Those 2 groups of people are the MOST racist people among mankind. White Democrats vote for Democrats because they know their policies harm minorities, & Black Democrats vote for Democrats because they think they can gain enough power to harm White People. Most Democrats will go their whole lives & have not the slightest inclination that they are the epitome of RACISM. Everything mankind has been fighting against ever since the written word, exists within Democrats ideologies, & beliefs.

  • Go Head Israelite Baby: That's why your set apart: she broke down the history of this country elegantly without saying how destructive but how great it is and at the same time explained love & modern integration is possible at some point supposedly as to now vs then: Hope & initiative but the truth is this: she's very talented. Go Head Israelite Baby. He that have an Ear to Hear, Let him Hear.

    • ​@Communismisgreat Well English originated from England but you can't say it's not American, it's used by Americans and it's called American English. Also Gorman did this poem in American English. That's what this comment is based on. And you've got to face that two thirds of all English speakers speak American English, so it's kind of the face of many peoples' imaginations of "English"

Two sides of a flawed coin. Your not going to hear any mention of labor unions in this poet’s work. Just another sellout cashing in.
