multiracial hands

 

Does it make a

Difference whether

You’re black or white?

Is it a stereotype

You stink?

If you’re red

Does the description

That you’re a member

Of club med?

Stereotyping comes

In all sizes

Shapes and Colors

Each race gives

A stereotype about

One another.

If you are Chinese

You’re always eating

Rice, if you’re black

You’re from the South.

Open your eyes and

You will see the

Knowledge you can

Pass on to the

Next generation

To be.

-Nancy Moore
