<quoted text>You've really got this thing for Maya Angelou, IG. She wasn't all that sexy, you know.
I can't explain it, maybe she reminds me of a maid my mammy had back on the plantation, in a previous life.

<quoted text>Louis Farrakhan was racist. Malcom X was not. Rising to the defense of an oppressed people does not make you a racist, it makes you a fighter for a worthy cause.
I always thought that malcom X looked a lot like Denzel Washington.

That's hard to understand. I'm told Ms Angelou hadn't even a single whiplash mark on her back. But you can dream, can't you?

No, that was Charleton Heston. Denzel Washington looked like Moses.

maya angelou did nothing good for America. She would rush to any and all black protests and spew the hate she held for America, and the love she had for the racist muslim louis farrakhan. She abandoned America for Africa in the '60's and only returned when farrakhan's boy malcolm X begged her come help him try to turn America into a muslim nation.

Of course we all know how that turned out for malcolm. He figured out that farrakhunt was the devil and went out on his own, so farrakhunt had him whacked. Even after all that internal bloodshed she held farrakhunt's nuts until she died.

I say good riddance.

How about her association with Malcom X and the building of the nation of Islam? Oh wait ... of course Malcom X wasn't a racist either. LOL
You got one right. Malcolm X was not a racist.
