    The poet sees beauty in all people as against the views of racists all over the world along with those of America. Great little poem. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people

    Yes, the whole issue is about soul. Humans should be judged by their soul and not the skin of their colour. pigmentation is an indicator of nothing. Simple and nice poem (Report) Reply
