    Black or White, Light Or

    This image reminded me that there are racial differences, and people have different skin colors, but underneath it we're all trying to achieve the same goals.

    I live in Cazenovia, and we don't have a very integrated community. It's mostly Caucasian. Race is not a big topic. So, beside the image, my inspiration for this poem came from Barack Obama. At the time, he was still running to be elected, and the whole racial issue came to life every night on television. Watching the election coverage, I became a lot more enlightened, realizing that there's all sorts of different races out there, and we should do our best to represent them all.
