Colors, a poem by an African kid

I only give a random title for this post, that's not the title of the poem. This poem was nominated by United Nations as the best poem of 2006, written by an African Kid:

When I born, I black

When I grow up, I black

When I go in Sun, I black

When I scared, I black

When I sick, I black

And when I die, I still black

And you white fellow

When you born, you pink

When you grow up, you white

When you go in sun, you red

When you cold, you blue

When you scared, you yellow

When you sick, you green

And when you die, you gray

And you calling me colored?
