You’re not white.
You’re black.
That’s not right.

You live in fight
With supplies that lack.
You’re not white.

Keep out of sight.
The world’s a sack.
That’s not right.

Only skin that’s light
Can live with slack.
You’re not white.

Money is tight.
Education has cracks.
That’s not right.

Segregations pains the night
You can’t fight back.
You’re not white.
That’s not right.
