Award winning Poem of an African child

This poem was nominated in 2005 as best poem, written by an African kid:

 

When I born, I Black,

 

When I grow up, I Black,

 

When I go in Sun, I black,

 

When I scared, I Black,

 

When I sick, I Black,

 

And when I die, I still black,

 

 

 

And you White fella,

 

 

 

When you born, you  Pink,

 

When you grow up, you White,

 

When you go in sun, you red,

 

When you cold, you Blue ,

 

When you scared, you Yellow ,

 

When you sick, you Green,

 

And when you die, you Gray,

 

And you calling me Colored?!
