    ....A Lott of them still exist
    i can't believe that they still want to give me facial scars
    by spittin' racial bars at me...
    in 2003 not even closing out a half sin[/]tury when the South had a word of mouth system...
    no fair trial
    or federal interventions just "bring that ****** out"
    sounds ugly but
    some of them would love to go bakkk..
    if they could, they would no doubt...
    i can't believe a Lott of them still exist
    in that pretense
    false sense
    of superiority and power
    darker than the hour than when Governor George Wallace saw the light..
    i believe he was allowed to live to see the University of Alabama's
    black graduates take flight
    to remind him of the day when he tried to block their entrance only to find himself in repentance
    vengeance is God's....
    some of them would love to go bakkk
    to bias education
    segregation no longer remains in policy but in heart and mind...
    the legislation bear those remnants
    who speak publicly like Trent Lott... blame the Freudian slip...
    what he said
    was taken from america's lip and it's wrong and sad they feel that way
    but
    a Lott of them exist on Capitol Hill this day...

    a Lott of them still exist

    man you know I am going to come back with another spin off this one
    for real though the only thing Trent Lott did wrong was to be stupid enough to speak the veiwes of himself, his party and his voters in an open forum. I hope America is not thinking that we were surprised he felt this way, I think he is surprised that so many of his closed door comrads are openly denouncing his veiws when just last weak at the gulf course they were in complete agreement.

    Like the word play!

    I like the way you worked it...speak knowledge and feed the masses with spoonfuls of truth from the aged to the youth...
    we must never forget....and it still makes me hot....that there
    are still..."A LOTT"!
    Blessings on Ya House!
