Who Knew

Who knew we’d have foes
simply because of the way we wear our clothes
Kinky fros
Wide nose
But the very blood within us flows
The same
In vain
(in vein)
Because the skin that covers it isn’t the same

Who knew that melanin could cause such disdain
In this day and age
Eliciting rage
Is that really enough
To separate us

The human race,
Who knew,
Only has room for one?
A race
To be first place
Only to stand above another
Are we not people?
Did we not all come from a mother?
A sister, a brother?
But no,
Couldn’t be
They say

 You’re not the right color.
