The Simple Madness of Race

The Simple Madness of Race

A Poem by Eddie Phillips

Some of us choose to live in a state of madness.
We focus on this "thing" we define as "a race."
It is the categorical name we give a genetic change in the face.
What is this thing called a race? What is a different kind?
We are all human beings, in our bodies and our minds.
Our race is not the distinction that defines us as a man.
Only people filled with madness would dwell on a genetic tan.

I couldn't agree with you more, Eddie. Diversity should be celebrated not feared.
