@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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
