    Arabic and Hebrew people Language are similar.
    The Creator of Heaven and Earth Yahuah commanded the Arabic people (Not the ravens)to fed the Prophet Eliyah, when there was a famine in the land. (1Kings 17:4). These things were been done in the entire world by our neighbor's "Ebony/Hebrew and Ivory/Arabic before power hungry, greed and the wickedness of "white supremacy" polluted the entire world. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting get understanding. (Proverb 7:4)

    The songs is about opposites and irony: black/white, hot/cold. It is a tribute to the hot fudge sundae.

    Although the colors of the keyboard are black and white and the keys could represent different races, I think the meaning goes beyond that. We are all different in many ways, but we need those differences to be balanced. The piano works because of both types of keys, black and white. When we stop judging based on surface differences, we can live together with more peace and love. We should love our neighbors.
