    I got it at age 12 & I get it now. Brilliantly written, the artist minimizes racism with clever lyrics such as the yellow one doesn't like the red one for being with the fat one who didn't like the skinny one for being such a poor one something rich one yada, yada. Racism is just as ridiculous and likening people for being fat, skinny or rich vrs poor. Sadly, today peer pressure lives on. I've always loved this song & the message.
