An African American woke up one day and thought, "Today is going to suck". And it did. He was a teenager at the age of 16 and worked on a plantation owned by a slave owner, his slave owner. He got up and got dressed in his worn out clothes and left his little shed that was his sleep place. He was immediately put to work on collecting cotton from the fields. He worked hard throuout the entire day, being burned by the blistering heat from the sun. He wanted to be anything else in the world. He could be a normal white, mineral that was collected, maybe even a rock that no one has ever seen before. He would be anything else but what he is now.
