I Am ETHIOPIA!
The Builder and Moulder of Southern Culture and Aristocracy.
Taught I all of her -Presidents- Great Men and Women from babes and sucklings.
I am Ethiopia, The South's Black Mother.

At her feet:
Ethiopians must be Judged, Tormented, Lynched, Disenfranchised, and Humiliated.
They must not be respected.
Signed--
The South.
