langston hughes might be talking also about the racial issues no matter how
someone look at it they might interprete it in a way that suit them best
eg: i am 2 you are 4 divide by 2 are you not the same as me? blacks for
example was viewed as less than white it proble was that it took 2 black
men to make a white man is actually the same as a one of them, isn't a
black man and a white man still men.

Langston Hughs is a great poet! In the poem "Problems," it talks about the
issues that people have. NO matter how small it is, it's still a problem.
No-matter how big it is, it's still a problem. In such a big place or small
place, problems still comes along the way. All you have to do is just deal
with it!

Hey Anna, listen Langston Hughes is just trying to say that problems are
problems no matter how small. See how the simple ones (such as the poem )
can confuse someone? Never underestimate.
