"It's a shame to be a Negro because society has a grudge against me." I was once told that being a Negro is a shame and a mortal virusperhaps this "man" was right because he was himself a severe threat to the society. The society scorns me because I am a Negro, but the society itself is rotten. Sometimes I question my own identity: Is it my fault for being a Negro when my own race mistreats and degrades me, or should I apologize for being a Negro?
