Black Like Me A Rainbow

By Silk

 

To the Yellow Man when Hong Kong was under the rule of England till the 90’s were you Black Like Me?

To the Red Man when you were pushed from your Native land to reservations, were you Black Like Me?

To the Brown Man who lost Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and California, were you Black Like Me?

To the White Man when you lost your 401Ks and retirement funds to Enron, were you Black Like Me?

You were all Black Like Me, all Red on the inside, Blue about our children’s future, and fucked by who controls the Green.
