I was having a discussion about being black, and this biracial girl I know gets involved. Considering that she's biracial and was raised by her white mother (the Jamaican father ran off no surprise there) I asked what does she know about being black. Her brother gets involved and they both start getting aggressive insisting that they are blacker than me because I'm an Uncle Tom and whites don't accept them.

Being black is not about being accepted or rejected by whites, it's about the race of your parents. Mixed race people are so confused!

Being black have many advantages in America, thus everyone will find reasons to claim they are black. Look at the Alicia Keyes, do you think she will be as successful if she calims to be white and not act black?

I've noticed biracial people are fickle about their race. One day they're black, another day they're biracial... And some days I'm sure they only stress their non black heritage.being black to them is more often the result of having no say in how white people see them.
But the bottom line is that they are not black and their experience in life is a biracial experience not a black experience.

Now, anybody can be a victim and pretend to be black.

Same sex marriage supporters claim their struggle is the same as black civil rights. Court decisions have been based on their status as victims, not justice, written law or precedent.

A lot of biracial people (including hispanics) like to be casted as black people in films, but you will never see them play in another black movie once whites have illuminated them to be able to play in white filmed movies. These people include Halle Berry, and Zoe Saldana. I am waiting for Paula Patton to drop acting in black movies, its going to happen soon.

Biracial people in Hollywood sicken me. They have no problems taking roles created for black people even though you know full well they know they're not black.

Biracial women in porn movies are worse. They identify as biracial but have no problem being castes as black.

Although I am considered black I look more like a very lightly tanned White or Hispanic woman with all their features, I try very hard to convince people of all races that I am considered black but they absolutely refuse to accept that & say that I look like a very pretty White or Hispanic woman so what should I do?

whitey didn't accept mixed race as whites
in reality biracial people don't look white they look more black than white.
biracial people are always rejected by their white families that why they consider themselves black

Well, I think people should be comfortable in their own skin. The color of one's skin doesn't have to define who they are. I'm multiracial and I do my own thing, and I think more people should too and let go of all the race hang-ups or try to "fit in". Especially us bi/multiracial people, because there will always be some simple minded people saying we "need" to pick this or that or act this way, etc. The world needs more love and acceptance.

Biracials aren't black or white.
