I'm not black
I'm African-American
So why do people fail to see
The true color of my skin?
Beautiful brown
Why do people assume that
My skin color is black?
When it's not
I don't like that
I don't like it at all
Maybe some people are
Truly black
With black skin and all
But one thing I know for sure is
I'm not black
I'm African-American
