    Maya Angelou wrote of being a prostitute, a whorehouse madam, a communist and a lesbian. She hustled for racist/State eugenicist Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger referred to negroes as human weeds. Planned Parenthood kills 1,400 unborn negroes daily. Maya Angelou supported the South African husband/wife terrorist team of Nelson & Winnie Mandela.

    From the story of your life,
    I learnt so much about life.
    One need not to despair,
    Even life itself is unfair.

    So, we have to prepare
    As learn more that make us greater.

    So some day we can be great like you.

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
