The main theme of this poem is hope for equality. I know this because he states that he is also America, meaning that people see him differently. He hopes that “tomorrow” it will be different, and all people will be equal. and assimilation of our indigenous peoples into European-Canadian society. I know this because of how she speaks that they “took away and snatched her culture” means that she did not want to be like the Europeans. The title relates to the theme because it is stating that he wants to be included. He wants to be equal. “They’ll see how beautiful I am- and be ashamed” this line stood out to me because it shows the injustice that African American people had to face. They are the same as everyone else and it is shameful to believe that they were excluded from so much not that long ago. I would ask the poet what emotions he felt while writing this poem. I would ask him because I want to know if he was angry or just unfaithful that people would eventually change their ways and believe in equality. The main idea of this poem is the conformity and assimilation of our indigenous peoples into European-Canadian society. I know this because of how she speaks that they “took away and snatched her culture” means that she did not want to be like the Europeans.
