Colorblind
On Display

I grew up in a town, in a home where we all got along

And our color was overlooked

I was taught that a face and a name didn't make it ok

To put somebody below the rest

Why this hatred, separation

I will never understand it, we're no better

I don't see a difference

Enough with the ignorance, wake up

You filter by race, never learned to embrace other shades

Well I don't care, I play fair

You guard the pedestal I wanna share

While you win and hoard your prize

I'd rather be colorblind

Noon was art, where we'd tidy our desk and begin with a canvas

As white as the winter snow

Answer this, without all of the paints and our big box of pencils

How could we have learned to create

Why this hatred, isolation

I will never understand it, they deserve better

I don't see a difference

Enough with the ignorance, wake up

You filter by race, never learned to embrace other shades

Well I don't care, I play fair

You guard the pedestal I wanna share

While you win and hoard your prize

I'd rather be colorblind

Red is to blue is to green is to gold

Owning a beauty that can't be controlled

Give up allow them to brighten your soul

Unfold, unfold, unfold

White is to black is to brown is to grey

Equally worthy despite what you say

Maybe you'll turn and retire your ways

Someday, someday, someday

I don't see a difference

Enough with the ignorance, wake up

You filter by race, never learned to embrace other shades

Well I don't care, I play fair

You guard the pedestal I wanna share

I see clear, hidden fear

Uneducated, supremacist, coward my dear

While you win and hoard your prize

I'd rather be colorblind, I'd rather be colorblind

I'd rather be colorblind, I'd rather be colorblind
