Analysis and comments on World, Take Good Notice. by Walt Whitman

Comment 2 of 2, added on April 14th, 2014 at 11:03 PM.
As far as "White guy

As far as "White guys as mass killers go," well in Rwanda from April to
June, 1994, a scant three mohtns, Black Hutus killed Black Tutsis and
"moderate" Hutus to the tune of about 800K to one million. In three mohtns.
By mostly machete and stones. You had to pay money to get shot. And killed
old people, infants, neighbors, friends, often relatives. Up close and
personal. This three month mobilization of Black mass-murder stands against
the three year record of Auschwitz with the most modern industrial killing
machinery available.Let no one say Africans are any slouches in
mass-murder. Black men in Africa hold the per-capita record in mass
murder.Then there is Omar Thornton, Cookie Thornton, that Black guy at
Socal Edison, Lee Boyd Malvo and John Mohammed, that Black guy in the Bay
Area, a few others. Mass murderers all. But of course, Black so down the
memory hole.

In this short work, Whitman seems to be warning the world to look out for
the arrogance of the United States. It seems very appropriate today.
