Who are we?

Am black you white!
Am black is this in comparison to color.
The type taught in school
Blue, yellow,red, white and black.
But black is intense i have never seen skin that color.
Dark brown, yes
So how is that black.

White is a color too!
how could this even compare to a fleshy skin tone .
I really seen no resemblence.
To the color thaught world wide.

How did we get to this point.
Am black you white.
Show me the color wheel
Lets match these colors
We got some lost in translation

I don't know about you
But i think we got to be re-educated
Am black and you white,
Thats a color.
Bare no resemblence to skin tone

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
