I went to a park near Atlanta. They had a plantation, which had the White man’s house and a Little cottage where the slaves lived. People were walking around the grounds, looking reading the historical posts and seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Once I realized it was a real plantation, I started freaking out and yelling at the black people to run away.

I couldn’t understand why people would want to make a plantation a museum. My soul felt the evil of slave ownership nothing to be proud of, but in Atlanta, at that park, the plantation was something to visit... beats the s.h.i.t. out of me why.

Tell people to stop beating you on the head.
