“I dream a world where man
No other man will scorn,
Where love will bless the earth
And peace its paths adorn.
I dream a world where all
Will know sweet freedom’s way,
Where greed no longer saps the soul
Nor avarice blights our day.
A world I dream where black or white,
Whatever race you be,
Will share the bounties of the earth
And every man is free,
Where wretchedness will hang its head
And joy, like a pearl,
Attends the needs of all mankind—
Of such I dream, my world!”—I Dream a World, Langston Hughes
uhh, i just watched nicki minaj’s grammy performance. i actually feel kind of embarrassed for her. the set was cool, but no amount of makeup and costumes could ever stand in for the lack of musicality in that song. seriously. what the actual fuck?
