Saul saw Goliath as too big to kill. David saw he was too big to miss.

You expect little
We do more
Still not satisfied you hate us
You see our outside
And expect the same to live within
I'm not just a color
I'm a person
I have a heart that beats
Lungs that breathe
I'm just like you
But you're too blind to see
The root of your stupidity
Intolerant of different
Afraid of different
Seems like you're the one with the problem

I wrote this for English. It is from the point of view of a black family in the 1950s.
