Don’t judge me
By looking at my anatomy
There’s a lot more to me
than the eye can see
So don’t classify me
Simply by spotting the flaws on this face
Don’t fixate on my race
Don’t overthink on the ways of my heritage
Don’t look too long at the color of my skin
Why don’t you step closer and take a look within
Look a little beyond my esaphogus
And allow me to introduce
The being inside that resembles You
A soul much like yours
With hopes and dreams
So take a second glance
Not all is as it seems
So take a second to know me
For what is reality?
Only that the bare eye can see

I wrote this before all the division taking place right now.
Stereotypes are just the awfulest thing in the world. We are what we chose to be. So don’t look at me and assume. Don’t look at him and deduce. And don’t look at her and infer…
Don’t look down at another race.
You ever seen an x-ray machine? Your insides look just like theirs.
We are all people.
One race. The human race. One family with the same purpose – survive.
