Here you will find the Poem Is It Because I Am Black of poet Joseph Seamon Cotter

Is It Because I Am Black?

Why do men smile when I speak,
And call my speech
The whimperings of a babe
That cries but knows not what it wants?
Is it because I am black?

Why do men sneer when I arise
And stand in their councils,
And look them eye to eye,
And speak their tongue?
Is it because I am black?
