Lesson One: He Bleach His Self

He Bleach His Self

In college,  a professor asked the class why does the black community reject Michael Jackson?  (This was before MJ died and made his big comeback)  Most of the students looked puzzled. 

A lone voice spoke with authority stating, “He bleach his self.”

The professor said, “That’s right!”

I don’t remember what class that was, but I do remember the valuable lesson I learned that day. Grammar doesn’t matter once you reach 13th grade.
