Am I the only one who is colored or is that just a saying? Sometimes I drop to my knees praying, asking the lord, why do some people call me names? Is it true we all evolved from the same place? Does my skin really turn or does everyone's skin change colors? When white people get mad their skin turns bright red like it's been burned. When white people get a bruise, doesn't their skin turn purple and green? Mine stays the same.
If we can hold hands and pull through this struggle, no one can separate us, my sisters and brothers. What I wish is that you could walk a day in my shoes and be tormented not physically but emotionally. You would know what it means to be judged by something as silly as color.
