If I Was White

If I was white, would I be expected to be bright? If I was white, would my condition cause you to be contrite? If I was white, would my aggressiveness lead to a fight? If I was white, would my ceiling have a limited height? If I was white, would my dreams soar high as a kite? If I was white, would I have unlimited insight? If I was white, would I have the opportunity to innately see the light? If I was white, would you fear me at night? If I was white, would I be born with a negative plight? If I was white, would I have to be extra polite? If I was white, would I have to fear being killed by police on sight? If I was white, would that really make everything alright?

What an insanely good monorhyme you wrote here... The "if I was white" repetition nakes it very strong and powerful. Welcome to PoetrySoup :)
