This thread reminds me of a lovely poem from my youth by a nappy hoe who went by the pen name, the 'Lady of Rage':
I rock rough and stuff with my afro puffs (Rage!)
Rock on with your bad self
I rock rough and stuff with my afro puffs (Rage!)
Rock on with your bad self

I rock on with my bad self cause it's a must
It's the Lady Of Rage still kicking up dust
So umm, let me loosen up my bra strap
And umm, let me boost ya with my raw rap
Cause I'm-a break it down to the nitty-gritty one time
When it comes to the lyrics I gets busy with mine
Busy as a beaver, ya best believer
This grand diva's runnin :censored2: with the speed of a cheetah, meet a
Lyrical murderer, I'm servin em like two scoops of chocolate
Check it how I rock it

I'm the one that's throwin bolos, ya better roll a Rolo
To find out I'm the number one solo, uhh
The capital are-A now take it to the G-E
I bring the things to light, but you still can't see me
I flow like a monthly you can't cramp my style
For those that try to punk me, here's a Pamprin child
No need to say mo', check the flow
Rage in effect once mo', so now ya know

I rock rough and stuff with my afro puffs (Rage!)
Rock on with your bad self
I rock rough and stuff with my afro puffs (Rage!)
Rock on with your bad self

Now I'm hittin MC's like Hoo-yu-ken!
Ain't no doubt about it, I'm the undisputed
So what you uhh, wanna do is back on up
I'll tap that butt, wax the cuts, pass the bucks
So put your money on the bread winner
I kick lyrics so dope that the brothers call em head spinners

I got the tongue that has outdone anyone
From the rising to the setting of the sun
Or the moon, I consume the room with doom
When I hear the kick of a 808 bass, poom
Boom, bam, God, damn!
I'm hittin so hard you could say it's a grand, slam, dunk, punks
Get broken off for chunk when they feel the funk
Of the rhythm (fresh) that I give em
Let it hit em, split em, did it now I'm rid of em, yeah
I put that on my unborn kids
Rage in effect so you know how it is

I rock rough and stuff with my afro puffs (Rage!)
Rock on with your bad self
I rock rough and stuff with my afro puffs (Rage!)
Rock on with your bad self

Now ever since my debut, I've continued to lay you
Flat on your back from the raps that I spat, spit
Oh :censored2:, I'm the :censored2:!
You can't get with the Rage then tough tit-ty
I pi-ty the fool, that gets
With the lyrical murderer cause my :censored2: is rude (ooooh!)
You wanna get with the wickedness, with that
Big body girl that's kickin it, rippin it apart like Jason
You'll be chasin a dream like Freddy
Are you ready for the cream de la creme?
I'm steam pressuring those who ain't measuring up
I keep competitors stuck
In the muck with they butt up, what you wanna nut up
Like cashew, don't you know that I will mash you? For real,
That's the deal, I'm straight out of Farmville, VA
(So what you gotta say?)

I rock rough and stuff with my afro puffs (Rage!)
Rock on with your bad self
I rock rough and stuff with my afro puffs (Rage!)
Rock on with your bad self
I rock rough and stuff with my afro puffs (Rage!)
Rock on with your bad self
I rock rough and stuff with my afro puffs (Rage!)
Rock on with your bad self

Huh
I am the roughest, roughest, roughest (Say what? Say what?)
I am the toughest, toughest, toughest (Rage!)
I am the roughest, roughest, roughest (Say what? Say what?)
I am the toughest, toughest, toughest (Rage!)
I am the roughest, roughest, roughest (Say what? Say what?)
I am the toughest, toughest, toughest (Rage!)
I am the roughest, roughest, roughest (Say what? Say what? Say what?)
I am the toughest, toughest, toughest (Rage!)
Get with the uh, roughest, roughest
Get with the uh, toughest, toughest (Rage!)
Get with the uh, roughest, roughest (Yeah)
Get with the uh, toughest, toughest (Rage!)

Get with the uh, wickedness, roughest
I am the uh, wickedness (Rage
Yeah, one-nine-nine-four
The indo blow and the grass grow
Snoop Doggy Dogg still don't love a hoe
But you gotta give credit when credit is due
Women back down and bow down to my mother:censored2:ing homegirl
The Lady Of Rage
She rocks rough and stuff with the Afro Puffs
Handcuffed and she busts
And trick :censored2:, she's guaranteed to tear :censored2: up
You know what I'm saying?

Poignant, wasn't it? So vital and so fresh, all these years later, timeless really.

Joe Biden's comments slamming slavery reparations, school busing resurfaced by WaPo

“I do not buy the concept, popular in the ‘60s, which said, ‘We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race.’ I don’t buy that.

“I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather,” he continued at the time. “I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation. And I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.”

In the interview, Mr. Biden also opposed government efforts to desegregate schools by “busing” white children to majority-black schools and black children to majority-white schools.

“I oppose busing. It’s an asinine concept, the utility of which has never been proven to me,” he said. “I’ve gotten to the point where I think our only recourse to eliminate busing may be a constitutional amendment.

“The new integration plans being offered are really just quota systems to assure a certain number of blacks, Chicanos, or whatever in each school. That, to me, is the most racist concept you can come up with,” he said. “What it says is, ‘In order for your child with curly black hair, brown eyes, and dark skin to be able to learn anything, he needs to sit next to my blond-haired, blue-eyed son.’ That’s racist! Who the hell do we think we are, that the only way a black man or woman can learn is if they rub shoulders with my white child?”

You would think that someone with your professed wealth could afford to take their Lithium.

I wouldn’t say they’re necessarily wrong. I don’t feel beholden to agree that the Second Amendment gives anyone the right to arm themselves with any weapon of their choosing.

I don’t think that a if your ancestors went to a lynching, that makes you a racist (plenty of other evidence proves that).

Live in the day. Maybe you can learn something from history today, that’s not living in it.
