We are but 1

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Racism is all so unjust
To stand against it is a must,
It has no place in our short lives
as only bigots on racism thrives.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The colour, like Beauty we know it’s only skin deep
we are the same, we eat, we play, we sleep,
Below the skin we are the same
The colour and creed should hold no shame.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The world it should all act as one
Forget your colour, Just have fun,
For racists in our game, there is no place
What difference is the colour of a face.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Yellow, Black or even Brown
Why do people look and frown,
To shout abuse is so unfair
It’s time to stand and show we care.

Notes

I wouldn’t like to have put up with what Heskey and co put up with recently. And also as a Cardiff Fan realise how many black players are in the lower divisions who no doubt suffer unbeleivable abuse
