    When it come to society
    da world live in this fomality
    of such media

    by da color of da skin
    dat haven't yet mend
    only destruction and sin

    Are there such color blend
    when we say black & white
    dark and light

    yellow and red
    from da many scales of blood we bed
    how do we structure what's not had

    Talking radical racism is sad
    who the villian in a world gone mad
    where da majority is mis-lead

    For coloration / colour
    absorption, reflection, or emission spectra
    of lightz upon da eye

    Not of da shades of skin my my !!
    to this myth i cry , i cry !
    I guess it will be til da day i die



    Another foot note​
