Loving Race Joke (Poem)

I make fun of him because he’s Asian,

I joke around about my own race,

I love him even if he’s Asian,

I love my own race,

Yet he says don’t joke around like that in front of another Asian.

 

This is a world where we have to be careful of race jokes,

People can get angry about race jokes,

People can get hurt because of race jokes,

There can be a fight because or race jokes,

There can be a war because of race jokes.

 

I say, “I want to adopt kids of different race,”

I want our family to understand each race,

I want us to love each other no matter our race,

Perhaps we might even joke about our race,

I want us all to be proud of our race.
