I couldn`t help but note your shade of melanin
I tip my hat to the colorful arrangement
Cause I see the beauty in the tones of our skin
We gotta come together, and thank the maker of us all"
When I was in high school, race problems were so bad that we had 'riot days' when many students stayed home. These days were announced by other students in advance. Some students would start racial fights on those days. Mother and Daddy always allowed me to stay home. How sad it is that too often people use color to hurt and judge others.
Our children went to a local elementary school for six years before attending middle school. Although the school had a good percentage of black students, our children simply accepted the fact that people have different colors of skin. They grew up without a TV and were blessed not to be exposed to racism.
