At a time when hate permeates every aspect of American life; it is so sad to lose such a beautiful and compassionate voice!
Your article frames her eloquent -if not majestic voice- God bless Maya Angelou- representative of human excellence.
/Thanks RonaldStill I RiseYou may write me down in historyWith your bitter, twisted lies,You may tread me in the very dirtBut still, like dust, I'll rise.Does my sassiness upset you?Why are you beset with gloom?'Cause I walk like I've got oil wellsPumping in my living room.Just like moons and like suns,With the certainty of tides,Just like hopes springing high,Still I'll rise.Did you want to see me broken?Bowed head and lowered eyes?Shoulders falling down like teardrops.Weakened by my soulful cries.Does my haughtiness offend you?Don't you take it awful hard'Cause I laugh like I've got gold minesDiggin' in my own back yard.You may shoot me with your words,You may cut me with your eyes,You may kill me with your hatefulness,But still, like air, I'll rise.Does my sexiness upset you?Does it come as a surpriseThat I dance like I've got diamondsAt the meeting of my thighs?Out of the huts of history's shameI riseUp from a past that's rooted in painI riseI'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.Leaving behind nights of terror and fearI riseInto a daybreak that's wondrously clearI riseBringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,I am the dream and the hope of the slave.I riseI riseI rise.Maya Angelou
This typical narcissistic liberal was only good at one thing - her self promotion.Her empty vacuous 'poetry' , her support for the usual liberal destructive causes made her a darling of the non productive Left. Then the usual liberal Caribbean copycats like Saunders who has contributed nothing to the development of our people sprouts the usual left wing drivel in support of this self promoter. She was more revered than read and as someone said was survived by her 7 autobiographies.The Left loved her politics and out of solidarity praised her efforts in the artistic field. A supporter of murders like Castro and Che and leftist icons like Malcolm CX and Clinton.As someone else wrote:"Maya Angelou - racist, US Hating, Anti Semitic Nut job, most overrated crappy writer."Without any 'credentials' but her ability to rise in a politically correct society through liberal self promotion, she found all the time to attack a society that gave her everything.The greatest pity is that 99% of our brainwashed Caribbean people going backward everyday continue to look at this left wing type of character through rose coloured glasses and are so 'offended' at the truth.In the same way they continue to follow all the liberal American agenda that has killed off our culture.
