When I born, I black..

24 Jun


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 fellow..
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 grey...

And you calling me coloured?

*This poem was nominated by UN as the best poem of 2006*


Oh, gosh! puisi ini keren banget.

Ini tuh bener-bener ngegambarin gimana perasaan orang kulit hitam yang selalu mengalami diskriminasi.

Kalo dipikir, bener juga ya. Orang kulit hitam mau ngapain aja juga tetap hitam. Beda ama orang bule yang warna kulitnya bisa ganti-ganti.

Salut..!!!
