Your Weekly Prompt –Mingle – May 27, 2021.
Let them mingle
The colored and the colorless*
Let them share their life stories
And exchange views on their struggles
Let them find a common ground
And perhaps they will realize finally
That the color or absence of it
Makes no difference to who they are
Maybe there will be a point
When we all will realize
That color of our skin should not
Give or take away any privilege
Let them mingle, and then perhaps?
( * I have used the term colorless deliberately because it seems strange to me that someone who is brown or black is referred to as “people of color”, while the Caucasian races are referred to as “White” …… Why? I think we all are different shades of brown!)
