    Lovecraft's first ever published work was "Providence in 2000 A.D.": the poem envisioned a future where proper people of English heritage were displaced by immigrants. It ends as such:

    "Last of my kind, a lone unhappy man,
    My name is Smith! I'm an American!"

    Well that just sounds completely out-dated and out of touch, coming straight from 1912 now does it?

    Unfortunately, bigotry, racism and bad poetry never go out of date.
