Yes, they both write like English was a second language to them.

Have you ever noticed how often the user below (in the comments she posts here) repeatedly imitates the writing style of ManMachine? I sure have noticed this. And, I'd say that what she is doing here comes pretty close to being downright plagiarism a lot of the time. And recently I've noticed that this style-theft from this unoriginal little "copy-cat" lifter (who smugly hides behind her anonymity) is becoming more and more obvious.

Originally produced as an episode of PBS TV program in 1991, this 90-minute documentary delves into a long-lasting forced labor after the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863.
The film shows how, for more than 80 years, thousands of African Americans had to work just like a slave.
Tolerated by both the North and South, forced labor lasted well into the 20th century.
Amazing, shocking and enlightening!

As old as I am and who's family is from Georgia. I often wondered why so many of my family hauled butt from the south, now I know!

This history of involuntary servitude of mostly African-Americans in the South after the Civil War is unknown by most American whites. They do not know that it existed all the way to WWII when it was ended by FDR so that the war against Hitler could be won. In his documentary, we find that innocent Blacks could be picked up in the South, imprisoned, and then rented out to famous companies like US Steel for sums like $12 a month. In some locations, this form of slavery meant literally working to death in mines where the death rate was 30-40%. This truly one of America’s dirty little secrets.
