the white invasion

i think bontemps was talkin about the white invading africa for slaves,on
being brought to the islands the loneliness and harsh treatment that
welcomed them was terrible.

You are correct in stating that this poem was about Arna Bontemps's
homosexual tendencies. However, your immaturity was unwarranted. You suck

Oh but that glaze of pain swepted upon the river of niles, I rise upon the
black rivers, feeling the spirit of the almighty God, but that chain that
wrapped upon my feet, and the blazing fire that stood before my dignity,
but yet I stood tall as a man, Spoke as a man, Lead as a man, and the
furnace that awaited my body, vanish into the air, Oh yea, Oh yea, who am I
to cry, as they slayed my brother to the cross, who walked the mighty fire,
and felt the pain of de' devel, I still walk tall as a man.
