“Color”
When I born, I Black.
When I grow up, I Black.
When I go in sun, I Black.
When I scared, I Black.
When I sick, I Black.
When I die, I still Black.

And you white fellow.
When you born, You Pink.
When you grow up, You White.
When you go in sun, You Red.
When you cold, You Blue.
When you scared, You Yellow.
When you sick, You Green.
When you die, You Grey.

And you called me colored.?
