Poems and Poetry

I am black not colored

When I 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
And when I die, I still black

And you white fellow
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
And when you die, you gray

And you calling me colored?

NOTE: IF YOU ARE WHITE, PLEASE TAKE IT EASY, IF YOU ARE BLACK , PROUD BE BLACK
