Just an Italian girl with a lot to say and share!

Thanks Kanye for posting “Ten Little Nigger Girls”

Even though some people may be hating on Mr. West for posting the pages of the book on his blog/site but kudos to him for doing so.  “Ten Little Nigger Boys” and “Ten Little Nigger Girls” is a book published in 1907 (from what I’ve found) by British author, Nora Case (surprise, surprise) and I’m glad he has shown the book/poem to the world.  This just goes to further show how unbelieveably racist and demeaning they (those mangia cakes!) were in the 1900’s and how this was a norm during those days, where people (obviously cakers) accepted.  To think a woman wrote this poem too, being that women didn’t really have many rights at all during those days.  I didn’t know this existed; but we’re all quite familiar with the poem “Ten Little Indians” and now we can all be familiarized with this one.
