Pacific Islanders, Carribean Islanders, Indonesians, Polynesians,

Melanesians, those
inhabitants of Oceania and
the South China Sea.

Break your minds free from the Psychological shackles of the colonial mentality.

Stop bleaching your beautiful sand colored skin. Don't let white supremacy win.

As though pocessed by a hex. They flock to your beaches like leeches. Buying your children for sex.

Your complexion they envy as the ideal. As they lay nude, pasty and pale. Snakelike their skin peels under the sun.
