> Written by an African Kid...

> When I was born, I was black

> When I grow up, I am black

> When I go in Sun, I am black

> When I am scared, I am black

> When I am sick, I am black

> And when I die, I will still be black


> And you white fellow


> When you are born, you are pink

> When you grow up, you are white

> When you go in sun, you are red

> When you get cold, you are blue

> When you are scared, you are yellow

> When you are sick, you are green

> And when you die, you will go gray


> And you are calling me Colored??
