    ...And my idea here was to do a piece based on an experiment done using black and white dolls. 1940's experiment done using dolls to study children's attitude about race. Kenneth and Mamie Clark.

    Imagine that these two particular dolls are human but pass for dolls. Like Chuckie, Just not that fucked up.

    Disclaimer: Dis ain't your grandfather's poetry dis ain't dat roses are red violets are blue. You may not hear about rolling hills and mountains. Sometimes everything was blue. Also, these dolls could be male like Chuckie just not that fucked up.

    From the series, we spell words any way we want to
