      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.

      So happy to see that in our society there's not only a place for bad rap but now also for bad poetry.

      sounds like a bunch of people haven't been exposed to art or poetry in any capacity before

    8. Hannah Young

      All I can do is list off double standards and hypocrisy over and over and over again...

    14. Lorrina Lloyd

      She is way over-rated. Any student of acting, and any woman who hosts a talk show, news show, gives the weather or gives CNN or Fox news or commentary, could read a poem just as effectively. Any theatre actress, theatre student or woman who's used to speaking to large groups can read a poem. Many school teachers as well. Don't ya'll think it's MUCH MORE than a coincidence that Amanda Gorman is YOUNG and PRETTY? Come ON, people, if she were middle aged or obese or homely, she would NOT have been selected to read a poem at the inauguration or SB, and you stinking know it. I also have to believe that is she were WHITE, she would NOT have been selected. But these days, young, pretty, and especially black -- gets you lots of privilege. But even if AG was white, I'd STILL be saying the same thing: There is just too much hullabaloo over her. For godsake, she recited a poem with passion. This is not a one-in-a-million capability. Any adolescent involved in school plays can do this.

      Can someone not woke explain to me wtf this is???? How is this a poem? Absolute garbage.

      🖤💛💖Thank God for this unifying moment around the 🌏. Sorry for long winded comment- But I haven’t commented on KGup yet because I’m not usually logged in. this is a channel I watch from time to time; 🏙🚅. ( mile high city) Since standing in front of the tv holding hands with my soulmate- as we watched - goosebumps on our arms...I feel much more hopeful thinking of Colorful Colorado’s beautiful statues. I often felt creative and hopeful but with undertones of despair in 2019 when I sat under some stoic, stunning, funny & also ugly statues as I wrote in journals, letters , bits of poems, and started to read Stephen Kings “ on writing” . Now I’m actually putting his advice to use “ for real”. He dared me on a certain page of the book that I was now RE- reading. I was under a tree in Gillette, WY reading, social distancing- so afraid of covid that I sat on my jacket in case there were droplets. ON THE GRASS IN GILLETTE . In Gillette Wyoming. I still feel I was right to do my research and trust the truth. I am “vulnerable “ which is a term some human beings with disabilities would like to change someday. 👛👛👛👛👛👛👛👛 Thank you soooo much Lord for #Amanda . Maybe we will get a handle on covid if more people built one another up & came alongside to understand. So far no COVID-19 and still so far not a vaccine option for me that I would feel comfortable with. Waiting for science. And my doc.

      She wouldn't have a job, career, or contract if she wasn't talking about 'muh black victimhood, muh vagina vs the patriarchy'. Stop rewarding these race baiting bitches.

    19. Joanna India Harris

      Though the outside of her poem was great, pls try to look inside to find the real meaning.

      I find it truly unbelievable that since the inauguration I have not seen anything mentioning this poem in any way, shape, or form? That day it seemed any news channel I saw was enthusiastic or even gushed about how spectacular this reading was. And I agreed wholeheartedly! But since that day I’m sort of shocked not to see more ... I dunno, some sort of recognition at the very least. I know I interpreted the poem to be a monumental moment for not only the people of the USA but I would hope the world. Her words I hope and I do not doubt will one day be celebrated for being a sort of guiding light for those who find the truth in it.

    35. pretty pink

      fitting that she has no audience ... affirmative action in action. way to go harvard, this naïve uneducated ignoramus is your creation. she could have been something. instead she is another diversity hire with no understanding of how she came to be.

      Tutto perfetto, ci saranno dei microfoni potenti e sofisticati anche un po' più piccoli no? Cioè, ha solo un primo piano unico e deve essere impallata da sti due meloni? Caspita x essere un momento di comunicazione mondiale fatta dagli Stati Uniti.... 🙄😒.....lo capirebbe anche Topo Gigio che impallerebbero anche Larry Bird. 🏀

    43. Bjorn Lind

      Poetry people are already annoying. Then she added hand gestures.

      1. David

        @Regdu Geht simply everyone loves her because of her story

      2. Regdu Geht

        I am trying to understand- isn't it too much hype? Isn't this full of cliché? Sort of a sermon? Can somebody who is an expert on poetry give an honest opinion?

    60. DONNIE Trump

      This was laughable


      I’m going to say it again, Articulate, eloquent and meaningful, I’m amazed it was created by someone so young Her use of the spoken word will become truly legendary .... watch this space Well done Amanda

      1. cnmmd qiuoo

        She is amazing. A natural speaker. Beautiful.

    68. byffo

      Speech or poem...what a pretentious and insufferable individual!...just watching and listening to her for a couple of minutes was nauseatingly enough to know anyone who has to communicate with her needs to be aware of this individuals ‘neediness’ for ‘adoration’…’clever’, yes, but omg will she ever find anyone that will be able to love her a fraction of how much she loves herself…and at her age, that is worrying…she needs to get over herself or she’s in for a world of perpetual disappointment…that others will pay for! All the drivel…sorry comments here will not be helping this already confused poor girl…all written with the best intentions I’m sure.

      1. byffo

        @cnmmd qiuoo OK?…not really sure if you want me to reply…I’m happy someone has been able to express 'your' views for you?...but for ‘OMFG…I lurv me so much, I’m wet!’, I think she is going to have to work very hard to ensure her veneer doesn’t peel away while riding the wave of ‘tokenism’. It is possible that you are able to see something beyond the shallowness of a puddle that I see. But unfortunately, to me she comes across as more than a bit extreme, unhinged and a potential ‘bunny boiler’ for any poor guy that gets sucked in…but hey, we all see differences in each other and that is what makes the world so diverse and fun.

      2. cnmmd qiuoo

        both express our views.

    69. Mÿlord

      I love her poem so much I translated it into my first language (French). It's on my channel. ^_^

      1. cnmmd qiuoo

        I didn't get it.

    70. Chandra Gupta

      Beautiful poem and laureate ! A laudable moment indeed for a nation to have such a beautiful poetess

    71. Boubacar Dramé

      I was jealous of the people who were while the speech of Martin Luther King "I HAVE A DREAM", but now i am not anymore, because i was too there when Amanda reads her poem at inauguration of Biden and Harris! This for History! Thanks Amanda!

    72. Stefan Hansen

      Rhetoric rather than poetry.

    73. Pawel Kostulak

      I am trying to understand- isn't it too much hype? Isn't this full of cliché? Sort of a sermon? Can somebody who is an expert on poetry give an honest opinion?

      Thanks to our First Lady who introduced us to a great and wonderful young talent. God bless President and Dr Biden.

      She was introduced as the "nation's first national poet laureate" but shouldn't he have said "National youth poet laureate"? She isn't the first poet laureate America has had. Robert Frost and others comes to mind.

    87. Oilda Vazquez

      The best thing that i will see on this 4 years with biden. When ever i want to have hope, i ll go back to your poem amanda.

      I’m a history teacher in rural WV. I showed the inauguration in my classes, as I would have regardless of party. WV is a 2+/1 Trump state. Many of my students’ beliefs and words on political issues come from what they hear at home. However, this young lady captivated most of them regardless of beliefs. As I stood at the back of my room, I saw students who had earlier been upset that we were watching Biden’s inauguration, start to smile and have a look of awe on their faces. Most, I don’t think truly listened to the words but were in shock by someone so young, having such poise and presence on stage. Others, who I know were happy about the inauguration were listening to every word she said and they took it to heart. The next day, I showed this to all of my classes that didn’t get a chance to see it the day before. I have a few black female students and I made a point to watch their reactions. I saw a change in all of them as Amanda spoke. You could see a change in posture, you could see their back straighten, their chins rise, and huge smiles on their faces, as they took it all in. I honestly had to step out in the hallway and wipe the tears from my face after witnessing this. I think they realized in that moment, they can do anything they want and shouldn’t feel held back by the people around them. I couldn’t imagine being a young black female in rural America. I feel an obligation to show those students how much bigger the world is. I feel that showing them Amanda’s poem has been the biggest success yet. Thank you for giving your Words and Wisdom to us, Amanda! You truly are changing the world one word at a time! You’ve made this 35yo, white male history teacher in rural America cry tears of happiness many times over the last few days. You’ve opened hearts of many and the eyes of young girls who are beginning to find their way! So much love to you!❤️

        Teachers rock ! You’re such a great teacher . Keep on the good works sir . Your hard work and dedication will never go unnoticed.

      Very nice, a shame the optimism is BS

    93. Bushwhacker 1861

      What is garbage I can’t remove from my youtube wall. Was this a poetry jam contestant? Racism

    94. Quantock Beech

      Are the people of the USA as deeply and dangerously divided as a few of the comments under this video would suggest? Consider the number of such comments. It's a tiny number, even when compared to the number who have viewed this video, let alone the wider population. They seek to create a smokescreen to reason. The vast majority, whose persuasion or at least the language they would use is more moderate, are not represented by the extremes expressed here. It's time for the majority, the core, the great and good, the powerhouse, the equal, the united, to take the country forward once again, as they have in the past. Good on Amanda Gorman by the way; that was well worth a listen.

    96. Wynds of Change

      “Harm to none” and yet the first days in office he left the military out in the cold freezing garage and Prez T offered his hotel for them to stay in. If this isn’t the biggest kind of hypocrisy I’ve ever heard. Two faced lying, talking out of both sides of their mouths. Forked tongues. For those who can’t see it, and choose to turn a blind eye, may god have mercy on you, for you know not what you do.

      She’s amazing. I read that she wrote it the night of the Jan 6th attempted Insurrection
