The best poem of 2005 - Coloured

It's Saturday, so as usual I was Google+ing all day. Of cause other than eating and sleeping and ****ing. Someone shared this poem on Google+ and it's kind of deep. As a South Asian brown man, I don't know much about these racial issues African-American people have/had with Whites, but some of the Youtube documentaries I watched today educated me a little. First I wanted to Tweet this poem, but then this poem exceeds the twitter character limitation.

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 fella,
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 ?

I would appreciate, if you guys could share with me your favorite poems.
