For those of you who don't know H.P. Lovecraft is a very well-known author from around the 1920's - 30's who is best known for the creation of the Cthulhu Mythos and other excellent poems and fantasy/sci-fi writings.
Yesterday I decided to trawl the internet and look through his writings and poems and immerse myself in his impressive worlds...then I found this poem...
On the Creation of Niggers
by H. P. Lovecraft
When, long ago, the gods created Earth
In Iove's fair image Man was shaped at birth.
The beasts for lesser parts were next designed;
Yet were they too remote from humankind.
To fill the gap, and join the rest to Man,
Th'Olympian host conceiv'd a clever plan.
A beast they wrought, in semi-human figure,
Filled it with vice, and called the thing a Nigger.
Now that is some high-quality, old-school racism right there...
