Color Shouldn't Matter

Tue, 06/16/2015 - 11:41 -- Rockiii

No kidding, I’m black
And you’re white
And she’s Hispanic
Don’t lose your head
We’re all just colors
No need for all the panic
The only difference between us all
Is the complexion of our skin?
But just like in a coloring book
All that matters is what lies within
Give me a reason, as to why I just don’t compare
Am I too dark? Am I too light? Or am I even too fair?
Pardon me if my race offends you in any kind of way
Come on its been 60 years and we still act like yesterday
I’m a danger to the world, I’m against fighting and I love to learn
But as a black individual let’s get real that sounds absurd
Stereotypes and racism is why we all can’t stick together
But when all is said and done my blood won’t bleed any redder

This poem is about: 
Our world
