For Being Black

For being Black, I am feared;
But by some I am revered.
Because I am Black explorers “Treat” me.
Since I have darker skin employers cheat me.
“He’s not white! ”, some say.
“His is the lower pay! ”
Just Because I am Black!

For being Black, I get lots of favours;
But for some I should get no leisures.
For the fair, the best I should get,
For the bare, only the afters should I get.
That I can to many I swear,
That I can’t so many fear!
Just because I am Black!
Roland Cho
