What is America?


United States
27° 57' 29.2788" N, 81° 56' 33.252" W

What is brown?
The richness of the earth
Tough like leather, smooth like wood.
brown is America

What is white?
The light of the sun
Silkiness of milk, paleness of a dove
white is America

What is black?
The silence of night
Stealth of a panther, slumber of a child
black is America

What is female?
a caretaker, a gentle spirit
she is America

What is male?
a leader, a laborer
he is America

What is America?
America is one
