Black is me, But not my name

Look at the color of my skin and tell me what do you see

 

Do you see a (NIGGER)or do you see a color in me with the face of a human being

 

No color can’t describe my physical appearance it only shows what you see

 

I am what you see but I’m not what you call me

 

I stand to be treated the same no matter what the color of my skin represents or maybe what you say about me

 

If you can’t see the person within the color then don’t call my name or what you think you see.

Because it’s not me
