colour this

did i hear you correctly? did you say “coloured”? did you refer to people of my colour as “coloured”? did you really do that? are you really that ignorant? i mean, yes, there are things we all don’t know. there are things some of us may never know. but come on! really? coloured?

perhaps it was her uncoloured attempt to be kind

“black” is too harsh

well you can take your kindness and place it gently into the ocean

but if that’s too long a drive, write it down and burn it


do something

to destroy it

just don’t share it

not with me

not with anyone

we’ve all got colour — haven’t you seen the crayola giant pack?

there’s a crayon just for you!

take it

and colour this
