When U Black, U Black


Friday 07 February, 2014 by Uncle Spike

This was sent to me by email, passed along many folk I guess over time; so I have no idea who to thank or to give credit to. It is not my work, but as someone who is vehemently against racism or any form of discrimination, I thought it was rather superb, and certainly worthy of sharing with the Spikey’s.


When U Black, U Black

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 GREY.

So why y’all be callin’ us COLORED Folks?

  1. That’s great 🙂 Although I do have a black friend who lives in the UK and says that he gets sunburned if he goes to a hot country! He may have been joking or just a very good liar, assisted by the fact I can’t see when he blushes 😉
