it doesn't matter if u're black or white..is it??

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 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 and when you die, you gray…
And you calling me colored?
— Written by an African Child, nominated for the best poem of 2005.
