There are people who claim that they do not hate others,
But they are simply "proud" of their own race.
What right does anyone have to be "proud"
Of their own race?
We have nothing to do with what race we are.
It happens to us at conception.
Race is not a accomplishment
We may choose our religion;
We may choose to speak one or more languages.
But no one chooses his or her race,
No one can take credit for their race,
And no one has any right to claim
About their own race.
It is a ploy,
An excuse for being a bigot.
Nor does anyone have a right to cast
Upon people of a different race.
One may be proud that members of their race
Have accomplished some good,
Advanced through their own hard work
Their concern and generosity toward others,
Their kindness, diligence, honesty, courage,
But the colour of your skin has nothing to do with
Pride or shame:
It is a biological entity
Like toe nails.
Do you claim "pride" for your toe nails?
