African kid.

” When I born
I black

When I grew 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 u white fella

When u born
u pink

When u grow up
u white

When u go in sun
u red

When u cold
u blue

When u scared
u yellow

When u sick
u green

And when u die
u gray…

And u call me
COLORED?
