    Without some WORKING BASIS even a SONG we would be HOPELESS in the NATION...

    Which I see alot of PEOPLE BLACK WHITE HISPANIC otherwise.

    But to be BLACK and HOPELESS, I would say you are WITHOUT EXCUSE.

    Dont let a DNA test be YOUR ONLY HOPE to your LEGACY.

    Being HOPELESS in the NATION, OUR ANCESTORS have the GIFT to cure that.

    Thanks...
