Dare to Compare

Shhhh! Do not you dare compare him to I!
For he was not born within a skin that does not comply.
I am beautiful, of this I have no doubt,
But this is a fact, not a way to stand out.
MY PEOPLE were beaten, murdered and hung.
His choices make him teased, but still accepted among
Those who are different, who want to liberate his kind.
But yet it took years, decades for us to find
A place in a world who saw color as hate
And of course this is fact, no room for debate.
Support him & them if you must, join them should you dare.
But Blacks and Homosexuals NEVER dare to compare.
