Black vs White

A friend of mine sent me this interesting poem allegedly written by an African kid and nominated by the UN as the poem of 2008:

When I born, I black

When I grow up, I black

When I go in the sun, I black

When I cold, I black

When I scared, I black

When I sick, I black

When I sick, I still black

& you white fellow,

When you born, you pink

When you grow up, you white

When you out in sun, u red

When u cold, u blue

When u scared, u yellow

When u sick, u green

When u die, u gray

& u call me colored...?
