Bragging about our diversity

In this island of Trinidad and Tobago
We brag about how diverse we are
Yet one secretly does not like the other’s race
They keep silent, but you can see it on their face.

In this island of Trinidad and Tobago
We brag about how diverse we are
Yet Keith Rowley is too black to be prime minister
So now Mrs Beckles-Robinson thinks she can make a better administrator.

In this island of Trinidad and Tobago
We brag about how diverse we are
Yet rum lovers are what we refer to as East Indian descent
So now everybody wants Mrs Kamla out of Parliament.

In this island of Trinidad and Tobago
We brag about how diverse we are
But yet when a black man speaks properly and polite
We’re quick to say, “Yuh feel yuh white?”

In this island of Trinidad and Tobago
We brag about how diverse we are
Yet when a Caucasian man walks into a room
“They feel they better than we awa?” we assume.

In this island of Trinidad and Tobago
We need to end the race-talk wars
It really does not matter if you are black, white, mixed, Indian or Asian
We need to live as one and promote racial unity.
