F***ing Nerve (Lamont Humphrey, 2000)

When I'm born I'm black 
When I grow up I'm even more black 
When I'm in the sun I'm still black 
When I'm cold, guess what: I'm black 
And when I die I'm f*cking black too 

But you: When you are born you're pink 
When you grow up you are white 
When you're sick, man look at yourself, you're green 
When you go in the sun you turn red 
When you are cold you turn blue 
And when you die you look purple 

And you got the f*ing nerv to call me colored (...)
