Why is “race” an issue?
Does the color of your skin determine who are?,
Or the quality of your character?
Your personality?
Does one’s “race” give you reason to stereotype?
Should I act according to my “race”?
Is the president’s “race” so important?
What does it mean if I say “I am black.”?
Is there any significance?
If my skin color were to change,
I‘d still be the same.
“Race” is unnecessary.
“Race” is ignorance.
No matter what people say,
I will always be me.
