It may have started that way but now people here are PROUD to be black unlike the mixed folks in the U.K they are ashamed to be black clearly !!!! One black parent makes you black here I hope u understand that finally!!!
I wouldn’t say mixed race kids in my community are ashamed to be Black..I would say that they have had it drummed into them that they are not Black by Caribbean’s and Africans..the very same Black people that created them in the first place.

Most Black Brits will disagree with you..they are hung up on classifications while ignoring how the child is perceived by the outside world.

My friend Andrew is Jamaican but he looks like a Nigerian and people often assume he is one.
Should he classify himself as Nigerian because strangers on Lewisham High Street perceive him as one?
Also my daughter looks Greek/ more than black and many other biracials look Greek, should they classify themselves a Greek and pretend to come from Paphos because of how other people perceive them?
By your reckoning black men like Mr Anderson should just call themselves biracial because that's what they look like.

Your attitude to yourself is dictated by Southern white slave owning families?
Strange... mixed people in the UK wanted a classification that describes who they are and who parented them.
Mixed girls with white mothers didn't want to pretend they were born to 2 black parents... just like I don't pretend to be born to 2 Nigerian parents or 2 Korean parents :)
it doesn't matter BI racials are black in the USA a person that is half Japanese and half Mexican is still Japanese and Mexican and would look like a complete fool saying that they are not Japanese or not Mexican.. White people do not claim anyone who is mixed with anything and that's how it goes!! All of you look dum wasting your time on this subject because bi racials will always be treated and discriminated as black and considering the fact that AA are not pure African we are almost all mixed up just some more closer than others!! You can get hung up on the slave master BS but you worship white men so what's it to you????

that explains it a Lil but it still seems to me that the mixed Brits are ashamed of their black side!!!! They would be upset in america I mean really up set!! A black person and white would be quick to tell them they are black trust me I have seen it happen many times

Black women in the US choose Indian hair over any others because it's the best quality hair(according to them). They just don't choose any type of hair.
Indian hair is waaaaaaay different than European hair. I don't see how they want to emulate white women.
There is a high demand for Indian hair in Europe. Many WW are tanning their skin & now white celebrities are demanding Indian hair extensions. I created a thread because I wanted to show how women of color have traits that many WW themselves find appealing over their own. Many of us in our society have been condition to believe humans subconsciously find European traits more appealing.
Shalimaar comments is a prime example of this sorta brainwashing.

I’m talking about mixed race kids not Jamaicans that look like Nigerians.

Take a mixed race kid born to a White Mother and Nigerian/Ghanian Father...that kid will end up with tight kinky hair in most cases...that kid will then be perceived as Black to the outside world..however in your world you classify them as mixed race while ignoring how the world perceives them.

When Whites mix with Black..the Black gene will end up predominant...you get me, it's not the other way around.

No it's all fashion. if they wanna bleach let them,it should not concern you.
some fulani ladies colour their lips black,again all fashion ,no self hate.
just like china and India. Again mostly uneducated villagers do it,cause they are not educated on how dangerous it can be.

Agreed!

All the things European descent people have, other groups already have. But European descent people don't have what other groups of people have.

Do European descent people have kinky hair, wid nose, full lips or slanted eyes? No..But other groups do. European descent people are the least diverse group of people.

not really i have half blk cousins ,they are in the middle east right now.no one really percieves them as blacks rather half cast ,and may i remind you there are some arabs that look half blk ,but are full arabs.

i think its only the diaspora blacks besides brazil and latin america,who thinks tht mixed race is blk.

WEAVE IS FOR FASHION, if i like brazilian hair i will get it, if i wanna red green afro ,i will get it,,if i want purple braids ,i will get it.

i don't do theses things out of self hate, u might as well label every girl with self hate since they alter themselves some how.

do i wear high heels because i do not like my height.
it should not concern you.

I do not think by us wearing continuously is the same as wearing different hats. I think wearing weaves( straightening the hair) is a form of self hate.

What i calll self hate is when you see your features as inferior. i think girls with natural hair is very cute,but i reallly like weave especially brazilian hair cause you can do a lot ofstuff to it without ruining your own hair.
