    How come when I was born I was black?
    How come when I grew up I was black?
    How come when I'm sick I'm black?
    How come when I go out into the sun I'm black?
    How come when I die I'll be black?
    But you:
    How come when you were born you were pink?
    How come when you grow up you are white?
    How come when you are sick you are green?
    How come when you go out into the sun you are red?
    How come when you go out into the cold you are blue?
    How come when you die you turn purple?
    So How Come you call me colored?

    What does that say about black? ...it says "black, by any other shape form or fashion...is still black" ..this was tight and I like it. Welcome and thanks.
