No matter the color Of the chin I love to see kind faces Radiating love from within! History's big color-lie That's far too slow to die Says, "The darker the skin, The less valuable Is the person within." It's time we fully realize That what matters lies Under the skin And in the heart! Seeing color of skin Isn't a sin, But evaluating people By their skin Is. If history's tax on tea And today's mask on me Are called tyranny, What about slavery?
A particular skin color doesn’t define beauty or character and the ability to speak English doesn’t define intelligence. Skin color is a superficial difference that history cruelly and falsely declared to be super important. Until history openly exposes and admits the cruel horrors and brutality of slavery and Jim Crow, it will be ever incomplete.
The ridiculous idea, that the color of the skin can somehow make a person less than fully human, has produced massive pain and injustice. The color-based victims of slavery and Jim Crow, for the most part, have been kept out of history. We know almost nothing about their lives.
It’s time to move beyond skin color to joyful heart connection! Search for: Off the RACE Track book.
