Black people ashamed of their beauty
Ashamed of their human race
they hide their face
because of their black color they are disgraced
The whites, the browns, the Chinese, the Indians uttered black, black they run
gone in the cool-shade far away from the sun
running away from the sun-bun
they say made them black
Fear to say they are black and proud
they will rather hide themselves behind the crowd
so many things they will do just to become white or brown
they are shamed
shamed for what?
that they are too black.
