Poem: "We are talking about" (biracial)

This will be my last poem from Arnold Adoff's book "All the Colors of the Race" that I featured a couple of days ago. There are many more great poems in the book--buy it or check it out from your local library! We are talking about by Arnold Adoff We are talking about                            the ones who pick        their friends                            because of how    black      they act                                                                              or                            because of how    white     they can                                                                              be. Sometimes blackness seems too black for me,                     and whiteness is too     sickly pale;                     and I wish every                                         one were golden from                                                                     the                                                                    sun.                          Golden from the                                                    inside                                                 out.
