      This comment reeks of one who takes foolish pride in their ignorance…from the mountains they have come…barbarians at the gate, once again seeking to desecrate our creative works and culture…but you know we can’t be stopped, right?

    Take care Maya, and thank you:-)

  • The_Good_Life

    This is not said because She lived a full life and had way more accomplishments than writing poetry. Her memoir (caged bird), MLK’s and Malcolm X’s biographies are the three most powerful book you can read, black, white or indifferent. I was introduced to her work through the “Roots” series. Also, google the house she got in NC. That house would make a dope boy pic up book instead of zips…

    • Killuminati

      blah bl;ah blah

  • Killuminati

    wtf does this have to do with hip hop????????? get some real news~!!!!!!!!!!

        You need to seek some mental health. Honestly if you stop the BS for a second and watch the news you will see that there are folks like yourself that are losing it. Chill the F out with that dumb shit.

      • Killuminati

      • meanygreene

        no you don’t. one thing that racists need to understand is that for 400 years of hate, vitriol, racist rhetoric we became immune to your filth.. you have done everything you can to us and we are still here, and thriving at an exponential rate. it is people like you who are in an uproar when you look on tv and see an afro-American(albeit half Afro-American) as commander in chief, and there aint a damn thing you can do about it. after all that, I will still say I wish you nothing success and the best. and with that, I will say As-salamu alaykum, my friend

      • Killuminati

        thriving at an “exponential rate” ur killin me over here lol…is that what u call mass producing and leaving all these single mothers out there lol….i am not a racist i just kno that when i say anything on these sites the first thing u people do is either call me a “saltine” or “cracker” which whos the racist then? unreal
