QUESTION: remember when you humiliated your mother and sister; remember when you beat your daughter; remember when you raped your wife; remember when you murdered your girlfriend? Think about it…do something about it

Woman is the Nigger of the World

“Woman is the nigger of the world
Yes she is...think about it
Woman is the nigger of the world
Think about something about it

We make her paint her face and dance
If she won't be a slave, we say that she don't love us
If she's real, we say she's trying to be a man
While putting her down, we pretend that she's above us

Woman is the nigger of the world...yes she is
If you don't believe me, take a look at the one you're with…”

-John Lennon
