    Dedicated 2 my Native AmeriKKKan brothers & sisters who regard AmeriKKKa's heroes as their Nation's feared foes.


    General Washington...this land's 1st pres....
    Everyone knows the story of Custer's Last Stand.
    AmeriKKKa's heroes...
    AmeriKKKan murderers!

    Look all around at the statues dotting the cities,
    Then imagine if all those idols were images of your enemies.
    Men who slaughtered the majority of your people.
    If they didin't do it personally, they said the word...
    CHAAAARRRRGE!!!!!!
    Kill the men & take the women & kids.
    But let's label the Natives as savages.

    Pilgrims...pioneers...politicians...
    All plotters on a mision 2 make this land a paradise,
    But it's destined 4 failure cuz it's founding fathers were quick 2 bear a knife,
    wield a sword, & blast a cannon.
    Now, their images are standing in front of State buildings.
    When U see the war machinery proudly displayed
    as scenery on the greenery of museums,
    Do U ever think of the lives taken & altered of those
    who didn't ask 2 see them?

    That's like havin' a statue of Hitler in the park on display.
    I got it, let's make Osama's birthday a national holiday.
    Celebrate it with a huge feast with swine headlinin'...
    Climax it with fireworks 2 symbolize the twins' decline in
    the Rotten Apple's skyline.
    Matter of fact, let's make a movie highlighting his lifetime
    & thank him 4 being influential 2 AmeriKKKa's history in the bylines.

    How would that grab U?

    Just had 2 drop a little story behind this piece...

    While walking through downtown Denver, I pass a statue in front of the Capitol bldg., & on the plaque describing it, it speaks of how it is a controversial statue among the state's Native AmeriKKKan inhabitants cuz it is a statue of one of the Generals who led a savage massacre party on unsuspecting (sleeping) Native men, women, & children. But they will not remove this piece which causes so much grief among the state's citizens.
    And on both sides of this Gen. are cannons that were used in some battle, it doesn't say which.

    Flip side of the bldg. is a statue of a Native AmeriKKKan hunter standing over a downed buffalo with his bow resting on the animals side, & I think 2 myself, wow...both have been killed almost 2 extinction by the white man. Did they put this piece here as a message that many don't overstand? Or am I getting 2 much from it?

    Anyway, Denver has been extremely influential in a lot of my more recent pieces...Good & bad.
