    White S.K.I.N
    We got Brown Skin and Brunt skin
    But some kids wanna remove they
    Skin cause it ain’t white skin

    White skin privilege gives me the right to
    Act like an *** in the middle of the day
    To cut off you nose to spit your face

    We got light skin and dark skin sometimes
    Yo’ granny
    Eats
    Chicken skin

    My skin is smooth as the sun in a ray
    Of light

    And you…. well it’s DARK

    And BLACK

    And BURNT


    I got light skin and brown skin
    That makes this morena skin

    You can’t tell me god was color
    Blind when he made me cause I got

    Black skin it ain’t as privileged
    Or as dainty as you and not as
    Calm as you think

    MY skin can tell you the tides' rolling
    In by the goose bumps I get
    Or that the summer heat is too much
    For you…and your white skin
    to handle
    So I tell you to go on back on n’ and
    Hide your skin


    MY skin talks to god on a
    Daily base
    And you can only see him on Sunday
    When the sun is not at it fullest

    I have skin connect to my granny’s granny’
    And her granny for that fact

    So I will tell you take you white skin and
    You can stick it in the place where the sun
    Don’t shine on…

    White skin in the face of black skin

    Black skin on the sun and moon of

    Brown skin in the clay pots of

    Yellow Skin on empty canvasses

    Of burning flamed

    Red Skin showing blood and purity of


    Colored

    S.K.I.N.

    Sophisticated
    Kind
    Independently
    Nappy


    Can you see my skin…And feel my skin!…Touch, taste and smell my cultured skin.
