Asians aren’t mentioned in speeches
Blacks, Latinos, Muslims
Caucasians, too. They say this represents all
Do you really believe them?
Exactly no speech I've heard acknowledges
Faith and religion all
Gandhi? Sure we’ve heard of him.
He’s a great leader

Xi’an. Just try to pronounce that.

Zeal we come with, but you just us down because we sound a little “funny.”
