Color Blind

Mon, 06/15/2015 - 23:25 -- bweezy
In a world where we don't see color
We are all one race, we are all one culture, 
We are all one face
 
I wish I lived in a world where we were all color blind 
 
In this world-
 
Some people speak differently 
Some people feel differently 
Some people sound differently 
 
And that's just how it is
 
Scientists rack their brains as to why some people sunburn easily than others
 
Some people just happen to like fried chicken and some people just happen to like Macaroni and cheese
 
Jobs are given to those that deserve them and wages are based on performance and experience. 
 
Cops arrest only those that break the law.
 
Music, food, love, hate, design, is all a case by case basis. It is not pre disposed, it is not stereotyped.
 
People are judged by their character, no one is raised to fear, no one is raised to hate. 
 
There is no fight over a superior race. Ever.
 
We are all born to love.
 
In a world where we see no color-
We are all brothers
We are all sisters
 
That is a world I want to live in.

Me

Our world
