I was listening to the FUGEES today and in their song "Nappy Heads" they do a shout out to Frederick Douglass. Frederick Douglass was one of the foremost leaders of the abolitionist movement, which fought to end slavery within the United States in the decades prior to the Civil War. Douglass was a brilliant speaker and served as an adviser to President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War and fought for the adoption of constitutional amendments that guaranteed voting rights and other civil liberties for blacks.

He changed our country for the better and yet when the FUGEES mentioned Frederick Douglass' name I couldn't help but laugh hysterically! Why? What's wrong with me? I think I was just caught off guard because it was so random. The FUGEES also mention Bob Marley and Harriet Tubman in that song but for some reason when they said "Frederick Douglass Yeah yeah!" I spit my V8 Strawberry Kiwi Splash out of my nose.

Am I an asshole? Remember it's the holidays so be nice :)
