With all the craziness going on in this country, I wanted to share this song by a group my two daughters introduced me to back in the '90s

Pardon me, your epidermis is showing, sir
I couldn't help but note your shade of melanin
I tip my hat to the colorful arrangement
Cause I see the beauty in the tones of our skin

We've gotta come together
And thank the Maker of us all

We're colored people, and we live in a tainted place
We're colored people, and they call us the human race

It takes on character with every loving stroke
This thing of beauty is the passion of an Artist's heart
By God's design, we are a skin kaleidoscope

Should make it easy for you to see
That these diverse tones do more than cover our bones
As a part of our anatomy

Thank you , Donald. I have not heard this song before. I must confess that I have not listened to DC Talk before.  But that might change.
