    There is more to me
    than the color of my skin
    scratch me
    ~just a little
    to break the skin
    then you will see
    ~my color ends
    just beneath my skin

    blood and veins~maybe
    they are the same
    but then again, what
    appears to be the same
    ~is only similar

    color blind?
    ~see me, see my color

    Look at life through my eyes,
    ~witness my view
    acknowledge the difference
    ~perhaps
    you will cease trying
    to convince me
    I don't see what I see

    Color blind?
    ~see me, see my color

    Remove the blindfold
    which blocks the vision

    to my
    still tender wounds
    trying to heal
    my struggling culture
    trying to survive
    my wounded spirit fighting
    to hold on to my soul

    color blind?

    Please! Don't take that from me
    ~see me, see my color
    see the inner me
    see me, the me
    who seeks equality
    see me, the me
    who only wants
    to be free
    to live
    like the rest of
    HUMANITY.

    So true..

    these words Coco...

    to be seen simply as a colour and not as a person, how wrong is this...

    and why should anyone have to pretend to forget/hide their history, their past, because someone else doesn't like the colour of the skin...

    the only thing advanced about this world...is the tecnology..everything else is going backward...

    yea

    throwing dem hints
    hard to convince
    that some lives are spent
    in under the choke hold of the establishment

    it's hard to measure when your place is already reserved
    that's why they call it sub-urbs
    not knowing it's all the same
    just without curbs
    in the long run if you thinks it's different, that's totally absurd

    peace my
    DLSS

    you see look deep
    and speak
    so correct

    it's all different seasoning flavoring the same meat so to speak if you may
    allow me to be so blunt

    Peace
    DSSNY

    was this too short????
