Definitely "pretty words", but a tad "twangy"
Thank you for posting this, my love! JamesCalifornia~ Choice of Color ~If you had a choice of colors ,
Which one would you choose to be my brothers .
If there was no day or night ,
Which would you prefer to be right .
How long have you hated your white teacher,
Who told you to love your black preacher .
Do you respect your brother's woman friend,
And share with black folks not of kin.
People must prove to each other ,
A better day is coming, for you and for me.
With just a little more education and love for our nation ,
Would make a better society.
Now some of us would rather cuss and make a fuss,
Than to bring about a little trust.
But we shall overcome our beliefs someday ,
If you'll only listen to what I have to say.
