Beyond the Variation of Black

Poetry By: SGBanks
Poetry



I wrote this after watching a show on tv where it showed how blacks were racist to each other based on their skin color. Does it really matter whether someone is light skin, brown skin, or dark skin. Either way were the same race and we need to take pride in ourselves and stop the hatred. I know racism still exist, but why in our own race though -___-

BLACK

Black is beauty

Light, brown, and dark

We say the times of slavery is over

But there are still a few a stray

Those who use their color to define sociality

To all my brothers and sisters ,

Light, brown, and dark

Even white

Why do we continue to lynch our minds of this hatred

Instead of being separate lets be one...

One nationality

One nation

One race

Under one God
