I never thought about what an American girl would look like.
I hate all beauty pageants.
Do Black women want to be considered the American Girl?
I have been thinking about the "American" title for Black people since lil dons election.

I think about swamp crawlers in the whitehouse, and I do worry that their disorganisation could leave the US open to terrorist attacks upon the people living in America. I live here.
