LETTER TO MY WHITE FRIENDS WHO CALL ME NAMES

Colour...
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 U White fellows;
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;
When U die, U grey;
And U call me coloured...

Very clever. I have no idea what color I really am, but it certainly isn't white. I have seen a few "black" people who are actually black, but most are different shades of brown. I saw this young woman one day, completely black, but with the features of a caucasian, usually when a black and a white have a child, it is a blend, but this one was just unique.conversing purple heart dancing bartender troll please transport

I enjoyed this greatly. I come from a family of multiple races through marriage, adoption, etc. My daugther in second grade said it so wisely. When asked what color she was and was prompted with "white" she looked up quizically and said "No, I think a bit more light brown." Thanks for sharing this. hug

I do get this as i was with an african american and i am caucasian we did not fit in. They called my kids name and i could not fit in. This is direct and to the point.
