Black vs. White




This poem was nominated for best poem of 2005 written by an African child:

When i was born, i black
when i grow up, i black
when i go in sun, i black
when i scared, i black
when i sick, i black
& when i die, i still black

& you white fella..

when you born, you pink
when you grow up, you white
when you go in sun, you red,
when you cold, you blue
when you scared, you yellow
when you sick, you green
& when you die, you gray

& you calling me colored??
