American gal you are not a poet a poet would not be so idiotic as to
suggest for another toleave the country that they came to. Maybe if someone
took your rights away you would understand but what else could any of us
expect from white trash. I am sure its probably becouse you are inbred
trash, you should tell your mother to stop messing with her brother and
having kids by him because you are the ending result. poet you are not
ignorant you are.

Let America Be America Again

I read this to a gathering on the 4th of July. This poem is more relavent
now than ever. He speakes of all those who made America but have yet to
realize the dream we all perceive to be America. Let America be America
Again speaks directly to our time now as well as the depression era when it
was written.

I often introduce myself as a person of no specific ethnic or national
background... calling myself a "Universal". When asked where i'm from I
usually reply "from a land yet to be discovered" so, what Hughes wrote in
his poem resonates with everything that I am about. Add to this the fact
that I am of African descent. I agree that this 'nation' of ours has been a
fraud for all of its history, making grandiose claims of being a 'melting'
pot where the profits of democratic freedom erases the divisions of race,
nationality,religion, and so forth.
Really? The ways this country has failed in profiting all of its citizens
are too numerous to count whereas, the ways it has are easily counted.
Things now are coming to a head; the democratic experiment is starting
finally to sag under its own ponderous mass like a tower too tall with too
shallow a foundation. A massive collapse is imminent and much of the world
will collapse with it, unfortunately.
I agree and reach these conclusions not merely from my own veiwpoint but
from that of humanity itself being an avid student of all histories-I've
educated myself in the histories of many nations: Rome, Greece, Russia,
China, Japan, Europe, Northern AFrica, America, Canada... And every year I
add more to the list. I wont stop till I can no longer read a book! Why?
because I believe that the story must include all sides; not only the point
of view of the Victors.
If America today can't be remade, remodelled, and reformed to what it
should always have been, let it be recycled to create what should be!
Question is: can a true utopia ever be as long as profit is God? Can it
ever be as long as men are corrupted by power? Can it ever be as long as
party loyalty holds more wieght than talent and creativity?
