Colour Blind

They keep pushing us out,

man-made borders transcend 

from maps to our mind.

Our kind. Sub-human, coloured. 

Lesser than white, other than black – 

mocked, taunted, not just a physical divide.

Our knowledge? Insufficient.

Lesser than white, other than black – 

Measured by Western eye,

made to turn on each other,

treated as annoying flies.

Lesser than white, other than black – 

Why can’t we all be colour blind?
