White Made Right

DNA spinning
We are all of one race bioscience has proven.
Our DNA code reveals no subspecies human.
The color of skin was just a distraction.
White Light is a rainbow under diffraction.

The same sun shines all over this planet.
Every one of us is Colored by its bright rays.
Our notions of race were but a bad habit.
Neither White nor Black, only shades of grays.

So, if your skin is White, upon reflection,
It shows every color in the physical spectrum.
Master Race was a myth born of Hitler's fascism.
We are inextricably mixed when seen through a prism.

William's Whimsical Words:

Black is beautiful. So are brown and yellow.
