Dear white brother,
When I was born, I was black.
When I grew up, I was black.
When I'm under the sun, I am black.
When I am sick, I am black.
When I will die, I will be black.
While you, white man,
When you were born, you were pink,
When you grew up, you were white,
When you go under the sun, you are red,
When you are cold, you are blue,
When you are afraid, you are green,
When you are sick, you are yellow,
When you will die, you will be grey.
So, between us two, who is the man of color?
