my black skin

take me as i am 
don't be afraid of my black skin 
i am wise i am smart i am sexy 
but the best thing is...
i am free 
my skin is shaded black 
but my heart is the shade of platinum 
i can live as other people do 
i share your restroom... 
i eat at the same places as you... 
why cant you take me as i am
GOD is my father.... 
so who raised you 
can you put on my shoes....
and walk with black feet...
as i so proudly do 
you need to take me as i am 
and don't be afraid of my black skin
