    -He grew up in the hood and fought hard to be accepted by the Black community.
    -Black girls told his little sister she wasn't "Black enough" so she cut her hair off when she got home.
    -Advantage of being biracial is learning about more cultures.

    [​IMG]

    -Identifies as biracial because her GRANDMOTHER (mom's mom) is white.
    -Says Black kids mistreated her the most but doesn't specify how.
    -Says people bring up slavery, but slavery is irrelevant because our ancestors went through that, not us.
    -Says Black people shouldn't be mad at the brown paper bag test.
    -Used slang and wore cool Nike shoes to fit in with the Black kids at school.
    -White girls love her personality, not just because she's light-skinned.

    -Was raised by her white family.
    -All of her white aunts have mixed kids.
    -Black girls always tried to fight her.

    [​IMG]

    -Grew up with her white side of the family.
    -Black people were more accepting of her and her sister, but she's tired of Black people thinking white people are bad.

    [​IMG]

    -His white mom got a lot of flack from his father's family.
    -They made mean comments about her cooking skills.
    -When they would have family functions, the Black women in his family wouldn't include his mom.

    [​IMG]

    -Black girls discriminated against her the most.
    -She's been labelled a 'bitch' & 'hoe' because she's light-skinned/biracial.

    *All of them say they've been called a n***er by white people on several occasions, but Black people gave them the most problems overall.*





    Seems like propaganda to me.

    Most likely because that was their primary enviroment. It could be reversed if they were exposed to and/or living in different areas.
    Point is, there is an identity they identify with, which is bir-racial.

    There's a very popular sterotype about the lack of seasoning in White people's food compared to ethnic food.
