" and every day slaves were being slaughtered and carted away"
thats not funny
Me: Oh well at leat it doesn't effect me! 😂😂😂
Xander: his mother went quick
Someone in the audience giggles: DO YOU HAVE NO HEART!?!?!? 😱😡😱😡😱😡😱😡
look at where you started
By the way, it isn't in this video, but I love the musicial's repeated use of, "I'm not gonna throw away my shot," knowing that Hamilton was ultimately killed in a duel, while firing his own pistol up. He literally threw away his shot, and it cost him is life.
"our hamilton kept his guard up"
"his name is alexander hamilton"
"theres a million things he hasnt done"
and then theres just
"ME IM THE DAMN FOOL THAT SHOT HIM"
instead of all the other people
"waiting in the weeds for you"
"you could never take the deeds from you"
"in our cowardice shame we will never will destroy your name"
"yeah im the damn genius that shot him"
