it is about race - part 6: with ANOTHER reason why it shouldn't be...

My friend's mother sent me this and I made sure I sent it to all my Black friends. I know they had a great chuckle with it. It is ANOTHER reason why this election should not be about race - this in a cute, funny way...

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye...

This was written by a black gentleman in Texas years ago and is so funny. What a great sense of humor. And creativity!!!

When I was born, I was BLACK ,

When I grew up, I was BLACK ,

When I went in the sun, I stayed BLACK,

When I got cold, I was BLACK ,

When I was scared, I was BLACK ,

When I was sick, I was BLACK ,

And when I die, I'll still be BLACK .

NOW, You 'white' folks....

When you're born, you're PINK,

When you grow-up, you're WHITE ,

When you go in the sun, you get RED,

When you're cold, you turn BLUE,

When you're scared, you're YELLOW,

When you get sick, you're GREEN,

When you bruise, you turn PURPLE ,

And when you die, you look GRAY.

So who y'all callin' COLORED folks?
