Everytime I look at a paper it has:

Black, White, Chinese, Indian, etc...

Why can't it just say American?

I don't want to be labeled as those things,

I'm not black, I'm not white,

I'm just an American.

But why can't we all get labeled as Americans?

Are we still stuck in the past,

Were blacks couldn't walk past?

Or are we just Americans trying to relive the past?

I just want to be labeled as an American and that's all i ask.
