Question 747: Colour me what?



"This is a song about prejudice
And the language of prejudice
And the power of... the language of... prejudice
It's called
Prejudice

In this modern freespoken society
There is a word that we still hold taboo
A word with a terrible history of being used to abuse oppress and subdue
Just six seemingly harmless letters arranged in a way will form a word
With more power than the pieces of metal that are forged to make swords
A couple of G's an R and an E an I and an N
Just six little letters all jumbled together have caused damage that we may never mend
And it's important that we all respect that if these people should happen to choose to reclaim the word as their own it doesn't mean the rest of you have a right to its use
So never underestimate
The power that language imparts
Sticks and stones may break your bones but words can break hearts
A couple of G's G's unless you've had to live it an R and an E Even I am careful with it
An I and an N, in the end it will only offend, don't want to have to spell it out again

Yeah

Only a ______ can call another ______ ______
Only a ______ can call another ______ ______
So listen to me if you care for your health
You wont call me ______ less your ______ yourselfOnly a ______ can call another ______ ______"







What is this six letter word?
The above piece is written by?

Don't google this.
