Dear White Man

Sevgili Beyaz Adam,
Dogarim, siyahim
Buyurum, siyahim
Guneslenirim, siyahim
Usurum, siyahim
Korkarim, siyahim
Hastalanirim, siyahim
Ve olurum, hala siyahim

Ve sen Beyaz Adam,
Dogarsin, pembesin
Buyursun, beyazsin
Guneslenirsin, kizarirsin
Usursun, morarirsin
Korkarsin, sararirsin
Hastalanirsin, yesilsin
Ve olursun, grisin
Ve hala utanmadan
Bana renkli dersin....

Dear White Man,
I'm born, I'm black
I grow, I'm black
I tan, I'm black
I'm cold, I'm black
I'm scared, I'm black
I get sick, I'm black
I die, and I'm still black

And you White Man
You're born, you're pink
You grow, you're white
You tan, you're red
You're cold, you're purple
You're scared, you're yellow
You're sick, you're green
You die, you're gray
And yet with no shame
You call me colored...
