Must Read Poem

This poem was nominated by UN as the Best Poem of 2008 written by an African Kid..

When I born, I black,
When I grow up, I black,
When I go in the sun, I black,
When I cold, I black,
When I sick, I black,

When I die, I still black and
you white people;

When you born, you pink,
When you grow up, you white,
When you out in sun, you red,
When you cold, you blue,
When you scared, you yellow,
When you sick, you gree,
When you die, you gray,

and you call me coloured?
