Aren’t Sunflowers Suppose To Be Yellow?
After hearing “aren’t sunflowers suppose to be yellow?” too many times, we, the mahogany sunflowers, wish to make a public declaration:
We are writing to denounce the stereotyping and discrimination we have encountered.
Just because we aren’t yellow like most of you doesn’t mean we are not sunflowers.
Just because you outnumber us and are afraid of us doesn’t mean we are less flowery than you.
Just because we worship different sun-rays than you doesn’t mean our photosynthesis is any different.
We are all sunflowers. Please – let’s all stop the stereotyping and discriminating.
