Stitch By Stitch
Javier Colon

Blue and black, heart torn out
You uncover what’s beneath my skin
There and back
There’s no doubt your touch is my medicine
I’ll be ok, cause you heal me

And I give you all my pieces broken
In your hands there is nothing that you can’t fix
My heart is frayed, my scars are open
So put me back together now stitch by stitch
Put me back together now stitch by stitch

What you say, without words
Resuscitates what was numb inside
So repair me every thread of me.
Cause you’re bringing me back to life
I’ll be ok cause you heal me

And I give you all my pieces broken
In your hands there’s nothin’ that you can’t fix
My heart is frayed, my scars are open
So put me back together now stitch by stitch

I’m still afraid of fallin
Somehow it’s takin’ over me
Don’t ever let me let it go
There and back
There’s no doubt your touch makes me whole again

And I give you all my pieces broken
In your hands there’s nothing that you can’t fix
My heart is frayed, my scars are open
Put me back together now stitch by stitch
Put me back together now stitch by stitch,
So put me back together now stitch by stitch

On Being Black and Latino...
  • Jessy Terrero: When I moved to the West Coast, the Mexicans I saw were a little more fair skinned, they looked a little more different. So, people thought I was Black there. Or mixed. I'm Dominican. And most people look at me like, 'Oh where's that?'
  • Tayana Ali: People usually identify me with being Mexican. I even remembered when we first moved here, my mom would speak in her native language, Spanish, to other Spanish speakers and people are just kind of like looking at her funny like, 'Why is that coming out of your mouth?'
  • Laz Alonso: I've either been treated fairly or treated unfairly by the color of my skin. They don't look at me and say, 'Oh you're Latin. We're gonna treat you better.' No. You're Black, that's it.
  • Sabi: Growing up I felt I had to pick a side. Either I was Black or I was Latina but I didn't really fit in with the full Latina's or the girls who were all Black...
  • Maluca: When I did move out of the Dominican neighborhood, a lot of people at that time didn't know what the Dominican Republic is. I was seen as Puerto Rican or Black or Mixed and I would scream, 'I'm Dominican!!!'
  • Kat DeLuna: I went through this in high school, they would ask me, 'Are you Black or Latina?' And I would say, 'You don't understand, I'm a little bit of both!'
  • Christina Milian: I would see so many discussions on the blogs, people would say,'Oh she's Black' or 'No she's this, she's that'.
  • Javier Colon: I've definitely had folks who said, 'I was wondering why you had a name like Javier, we thought you were African American.'
  • Mimi Valdes: I've definitely been identified as African American before and it's not necessarily a wrong assumption because I do have African blood but I think what's more appropriate to describe me is as a 'Black woman who is of Puerto Rican and Cuban descent.'
