SLAVERY IS NOT A FOND MEMORY
Ah, the good old days...those days of sodas, and pretzels and SLAVES. I don't think so. Scarlett O'Hara was just another racist, plantation dwelling fluffed up white woman who liked to think of herself as something special. Her and all her " gentleman" slave owning, man friends are something to detest not long for. And as for John Wilkes Booth, white supremacist terrorist, a little pre execution water boarding would have been nice. So what does all this have to do with the Grammy Awards? Not much actually, but it is a fine kick off spot.
Burn, baby, burn!
