Jesse Owens: His Race Was Superior

Born today was Jesse Owens,
Among Olympian well-knowns.
In '36 before the Fuehrer
ProvedĀ  the Aryan wasn't purer.

Owens won the gold medal for the 100 meters, the 200 meters, the 100 meter relay, and the long jump. Oddly enough, FDR did not honor him for his achievements. Hitler sent him an autographed photo of himself to commemorate the event.
