and what

Barack Obama

they mad he was awarded the nobel peace prize.

but white people have been receiving recognition and praise for things they didn’t do for centuries.

we still celebrate columbus day like he actually discovered something.

not only was the land he “discovered” already inhabited by people.

i heard he wasnt even the first one in his crew to see land.

i heard a slave saw land first.

but i digress.

obama could be given the keys to the taj mahal,  the title king of all the world,  and five noble peace prices.

and it still wouldn’t be as ridiculous as the stunts whites have pulled in this country since its founding.

some whites still believe we are soulless creatures who are undeserving of a life and we should toil for their betterment until our death.

    I’ve been crying ever since; I’m crying now
