Racial Discrimination



Does our skin color  matter
We are blacks does not mean
We are not humans

Our skin color
Does not decide our fate
Neither does it decide if
We are to be killed

You kill blacks
Because you are whites
You enslave blacks
Because of our skin color

We did not chose
To be blacks
This is our fate and destiny
It cannot be changed

Let peace reign
Between the blacks
And the whites because
 we are all humans

We are all the same in every area
Only our skin color differs
And we have to accept it ,
Because we can not change ,    
What has been done

About this poem

I wrote the poem because i felt why are the blacks always considered different from the whites. It leaves so many unanswered in my heart
