After reading my post about the racial hatred killings in Athens a friend sent me the following poem I want to share with you.

It was nominated best poem 2006 by the United Nations. Written by an African kid.

When I born, I black
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

Children know everything. Let’s listen to them more

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?
