The Best Poem of 2009

Received this poem through an email from Kok Ah Moy, Kuala Lumpur.
This poem was nominated by UN as the best poem of 2009,
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?
