Black and white

you can skin a man and he would still be a black man
you can cut off a man’s penis and he would  still be a man
you can take him out of Africa and he would still be an African
you can rip the heart out of his chest and he would still be a lover
you might be white and you might be a woman, but that does not
make you innocent, just because you were born on the right side
of the fence gives you not the right to disgrace another human
you can’t turn black into white and you can’t make white
black and  you should never go between bark and tree
