It is those LEAP YEARS,
That really have the blacks jumping for joy!

Although I do value any and all comments made by others regarding my poetic contributions, my observations come from an African-American point of view and do not feel a need to qualify them. It is Mr. Dupree's totally right to feel he must find a reason to attack my 'views' as a citizen of Brazil AND find my experiences as a black man one he feels he can attack from an environment I am sure celebrations of American Blacks OR their contributions to American culture are not given the month of February to sustain their pride! ?
