    BLACK MAN WALKS INTO A CAFE EARLY ONE MORNING AND

    NOTICES HE'S THE ONLY ONE THERE

    AS HE SAT DOWN HE NOTICED A WHITE MAN SAT BEHIND HIM,

    THE WHITE MAN SAID "COLOURED PEOPLE ARN'T ALLOWED IN HERE" .

    THE BLACK MAN REPLIED...

    "WHEN I WAS BORN I WAS BLACK

    WHEN I GREW UP I WAS BLACK

    WHEN I'M SICK I'M BLACK

    WHEN I GO IN THE SUN I'M BLACK

    WHEN I'M COLD I'M BLACK

    When I Die I Will Be BLACK!

    When You Were Born You Were PINK

    When You Grew Up You Were PEACH

    When You'r Sick You Turn GREEN

    When You Go Into The Sun You Turn RED

    When Your Cold You Turn BLUE

    When You Die You Turn PURPLE,



    AND YOU HAVE THE NERVE TO CALL ME COLOURED".
