    I will never forget Maya Angelou reciting this poem at the inauguration of Bill Clinton. Simply amazing, I watch the video over and over again. (Report) Reply

    Try to forget because you are judged by the company you keep. Yes, of course, it's your choice to praise Angelou who praised Margaret Sanger who referred to negroes as human weeds.
