What Are Blacks?

"Charcoal is black,
Are you a charcoal?"

You're tagged with a name,
That speaks not of you
But merely of the colour.

1)The back of my phone,
Can be likened to coal:
It bid adieu to the sun,
Running away from fun.
How can you be a coal;
Bail yourself from my 'Oh!'

2)You're an impostor;
Calling yourselve what you're not,
Hijacking another man's identity-
Spelling yourself with odd figures.
Loss of identity;
Bethroted to fallacy.

3) I'm not a black;
I'm an African-
Don't call me what i'm not.

"Black is a colour,
Your identity is in you!".

I hate when Africans call themselve 'Black'. Black is a coal. Liken yourself to that!
