Skin colour does not matter,
nor the race they were born.
We shall not treat them like leather,
easily stretched, and worn.
 
They have a soul,
they have a mind,
they have eyes to see.
 
But yet we torture them,
day and night
for what they believe.
 
And everything,
we do what we please.
But because their skin,
they are mistreated.
 
The way they talk,
the way they act,
the way they live their lives.
 
What about what WE do?
But when they do something,
we don’t like...
We always must strike.

We should not mistreat anyone because their race or skin, but by their acts and personality. :)

So true. I'm reminded of a poem I wrote called colored blind as I read your poem. Good poem
