Everyone should stop being racist . . racism should be a crime, and crime
is for NIGGERS!

Oh wow. People are just...wow. I love this poem, not only because its
written amazingly, but because it caught my attention. so EVERYONE needs to
chill, its just a poem, dont be stupid about it. its only racist if YOU
make it that way. so leave it alone.

oh god this is so funny, i've read a few pages of comments and i have to
say that i find them quite hilarious. i personally thought it was very
genuine and genius of sandburg to write this poem. the title itself is
quite striking and i have to say that the word nigger is really why i
clicked on the link in the first place. but to skim through and see
comments left just about broke my heart

it seems to me that people really have their heads up their asses. and i
agree that most people with negative comments accusing of racism really
didnt read the whole thing, and if they did they only took from it what
they wished. example: "Lazy love of the banjo thrum" oh looky there, he
used the word lazy along with the word nigger, he is most obviously calling
niggers lazy right? oh posh, some of you really need to grow up.

second, in retaliation to the "confounding racism" in this poem i noticed
several of you referred to white people in a derogatory way, does this not
contradict the point you are trying to prove? your own racism completely
outdoes that of sandburg, for he wasnt being racist in the first place. but
you my friends are taking it to the very level you are accusing.

but what do i know? i'm just a "Kraker" after all. yet i've always believed
racism has existed more in the minds of those that believe they are subject
to it...
