    my blood that hates
    but they mix so well
    keeps me alive
    but doesn't fight like hell

    my hair striaght but curly
    solf to touch
    long but swervey
    thick but not rough

    my skin so evenly blended
    tan at site
    dark enough
    to know i'm not white

    my eyes that are brown
    nose that is wide
    ears that take racial sound
    lips that speak pride

    my body that is thin
    breast men want to touch
    my legs slightly with a bend
    my butt that walks with a strut

    so if two races
    can live inside me
    and not think of places
    where hate is deep

    why people fight like hell
    about surperior skin tone
    when in me blended well
    they live together and not alone.

    GeeGee...you said a lot with these few words...a whole lot. Thanks so much for sharing.

    so if two races
    can live inside me
    and not think of places
    where hate is deep

    why people fight like hell
    about surperior skin tone
    when in me blended well
    they live together and not alone.

    this was an outsanding piece right here gee gee...
    that self hate of which you speak about was bred in us
    since our first days in this country...hopefully, one day
    we will put aside all our differences and be able to get along...
    we are all beautiful in different ways...

    one love
