We're all in fact, Colored People

"When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every tenement and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old spiritual, "Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last."

Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most inspiring people in the History of the United States. Every single time I hear one of his old speeches, it gets me happy, makes me cry, I want stomp my feet and clap my hands! His words get me high, saint defy like an old lady in church I want to jump up raising both hands in the air and say, "Sweet lord, speak to me, speak to me, speak to me!"

I see the beauty in the tones of our skin. This planet brings us together like a family reunion. We eat, we drink, we laugh and we play. All of us are human, we're all in fact, colored people and deep in my heart I do believe we shall overcome some day!

I don't understand what's disgusting about it? are you a afraid of male parts?
if he has the body to pull it off, no pun intended. then don't worry about what he wares . it doesn't seem to offend anyone else but you. or your company would have ask him to change his attire.
usually when someone wears form fitting clothes they work hard on their body's and want to show off their hard work.
