Beyond the Variation of Black

Poem by: SGBanks

Summary

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
