Ovid seems to be the greatest ancient poet. At least to me, so far. More poetic than Homer and Hesiod in my opinion. Greater than the Egyptians and the Sumerians, haven't read the Persions or Chinese yet. Anybody know of something 8 should read?

If ALL and ONLY Black countries in 1965 let hundreds of millions of non-Blacks into their countries and encouraged the non-Blacks to assimilate. Then 90 years later, Blacks are expected to be minorities in those countries; that's not done by accident. It's obviously a plan to wipe out the Black race. AKA genocide.This has been done to my people, White people. It's GENOCIDE!

I was exiled from Britain - by the price of staying alive - 8 years ago. So - even though I haven't managed any begging letters - if I should die next year - God forbid - would someone please write "Went the same way as Ovid - but built a fuckin brilliant wind-energy system first" on my Tombstone - should I have one ? Thank you.
