    1. breakout 459

      POV: you are in high school you have to write an essay

    2. Agent NHR

      Behold, everybody. The single smartest American

      1. Th3Snipe

        That says enough about America.

    3. Lance Smith

      Where is her mask? 🙄

      1. Lance Smith

        @a cats covid is airborne and is spread by speaking, coughing, sneezing and so on. Wind can spread it from the microphone to the next speaker. TBH, she should wearing a mask.

      2. a cats

        @Lance Smith unless the next person touches the microphone I don't think it would cause a problem. They probably clean the microphone too.

      3. Lance Smith

        @a cats yeah but she's talking into the microphone which someone will use after her.

      4. a cats

        probably in her pocket since it would be impractical while reading a poem since there isn't anyone directly in front of her and her voice needs to be clear

    4. Ka-Pow!

      Time to cancel her because of the expectation that only a black person could translate her poem into Dutch. Bye bye. Contact her modeling agency if you disagree with that nonsense.

    5. Minaya

      Hope this works for your essay, feel free to make any changes as you see fit. “The Hill We Climb" by Amanda Gorman is the 2021 Inauguration Poem, it is a well-written composition that talks about the problems of America and what the future holds for us and the world. Here we cover events that are affecting our nation as of right now, (Like covid-19) and events that happened and threatened our nation’s sovereignty and democracy (Like Ex-President D. Trump’s raid); but, it goes through all those problems without making us doubt or despair, because it does so in a way that makes us feel like we’ve managed to survive and overcome all the obstacles that came, and that we’re able to succeed in what is to come. There are also some lines of encouragement that show that your race, gender, or beliefs don't matter and that everyone has a chance at life and we shouldn't waste it.

    6. Martin T

      Never say no to a word-salad!

    7. Kyaw Lin

      How is that a poem? Or black poem ?

    8. It's the squad

      we are all here for a assignment

    9. Matt O'Dowd

      Great message Amanda! Go USA

    10. noronha4223

      Well, now the united states seems to be america's bruised but whole...

    11. B0omer96

      I find this sort of "poetry" pompous and self important. I hate the spoken word/slam poetry intonations. This is not good poetry and you all know it, you are just virtue signaling by acting like it is good. I hate our society.

    12. Harald Harster

      This isn't a poem; it's an essay.

    13. K.m

      Hey what’s your teacher that sent you this. Mine is ms.mentry

    14. Sarah

      POV: Your creative writing teacher said that watch this video because you got a quiz on this 😖🥱

    15. Michael Sandoval

      A White Dutchman was forced to cease translation of her poem...because of his skin color. The BEST/WORST (depends on your point of view) racists I have ever seen or heard, are Democrats in the United States. Black Democrats are equally as racist as White Democrats. Those 2 groups of people are the MOST racist people among mankind. White Democrats vote for Democrats because they know their policies harm minorities, & Black Democrats vote for Democrats because they think they can gain enough power to harm White People. Most Democrats will go their whole lives & have not the slightest inclination that they are the epitome of RACISM. Everything mankind has been fighting against ever since the written word, exists within Democrats ideologies, & beliefs.

      1. Loluz

        so you are trying to say that black democrats are racist because? do u assume someone is racist because of their political views and skin color?

    16. Delish_Taco*

      1.99% watch this because they want to see it 9.99% came here because of their English Teacher

      1. a cats

        what about the other 88.02%?

    17. Cutlass Supreme

      Go Head Israelite Baby: That's why your set apart: she broke down the history of this country elegantly without saying how destructive but how great it is and at the same time explained love & modern integration is possible at some point supposedly as to now vs then: Hope & initiative but the truth is this: she's very talented. Go Head Israelite Baby. He that have an Ear to Hear, Let him Hear.

    18. ya boi koi

      wait a second everyone else is also here for school?

    19. ella morow

      this is a good poem but my ( ig our teachers) teacher making this an assignment is a no no😀

    20. Kamala Harris's Neck

      Fast forward to a month later, "uproar" that a white woman DARE translate her beautious poetry into Dutch. How inappropriate to have a whitey, it's like symbolizing white supremacyyy.

    21. Aniga W

      Love her

    22. TheCass

      Is she also translating it into sign language?

    23. Mihaela BORZOSH

      Golden Globe? Good...but not enough!😐

    24. Timmy Corbitt

      I knew it would be bad, but this bad I did not expect

    25. cj wins

    27. Nephele Torres

      POV: all these comments say something close to “POV: U have a writing Assignment about this”

    28. rd609

    36. Henk Rijkse

      Impressive. This is American energy on its way to the Great Republic. The Shining City on the Hill. But first some healing must be done. Begin with the JFK murder. See what it was. A coup d'etat to reach an imperial state. See what has happened and make the turn.

      1. SmellyNotSlim

    63. Spectacle

      POV: Looking for answers to the question your teacher asked you for your school assignment. The Guidance you are looking for: Talk about her being a girl raised by a single mother descended by slaves who wants to be president.

    64. TranscendingEuphoria

      2. CJ Gaming

        @ya boi koi stop crying

      3. ya boi koi

    86. pearl harbor

      Typical oppressed racial rhetoric. She also did not say anything poetic and she stole from Maya with her 'rise" stanzas. So cliche. Most people just eat this stuff up. I had to mute her just to shut her up and read the comments in peace.

    87. Betty Johnson

      Ugh she looks so gorgeous

    88. Carter-hot pockets

      All y’all here for an English assignment, anyone here for an art assignment??

    90. Spoonzity

      My English teacher teaches me more and black history than my history teacher (who just so happens to be a big trump supporter.) Really says something huh?

    91. Nasir Uddin

      Joe 1.🇺🇸💙👫hi

      nobody: teachers: let's make this homework like if you agree

    95. Jan Krynicky

      I feel like I traveled in time. Back. A bit more than thirty years. Back to the time communists ran my county and "actresses" recited poems exactly like this one.

      1. Jan Krynicky

        @SoftNut America wasn't, the country I live in was.

      2. SoftNut

        Yes cause America was under communist regime in the 80's lol

    96. En Win
