Black vs Colour

Sandhya sent me this poem sometime back (Alright, Happy Sandy ??). It seriously deserves a post . Supposedly this one got nominated as the best poem for the year 2007. Written by some African Kiddo. A very simple poem with an amazing message.

When I born, I black.
When I grow up, I black.
When I go in the sun, I black.
When I scared, I black.
When I sick, I black.
And 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 the sun, you RED.
When you cold, you Blue.
When you scared, you YELLOW.
When you sick, you GREEN.
And when you die, you GRAY.
And you calling me COLOURED.
