Just try to answer to the two answers and you'll see how you're wrong.

you can claim who you want. just remember you opinion has nothing to do with aa and how they perceive the world, and define their community.
you should remember that biracials are thought of as black/aa because they've always been thought of as black/aa for hundreds of years. identity is part of what makes up ones ethnicity. and once established these things are unlikely to change.
I dont make claims off of opinions. Just facts. If you so choose to perpetuate the one-drop Jim Crow law and give whites the authority to define blackness then that's on you. Just keep in mind that there are plenty of biracial Americans that do not consider themselves black (and they correctly have the right to do so) and will soon form their own group as they have done in other countries. I suggest you watch the documentary "Im biracial not black damn it".

True. Some of them look white.

Not really, mostly ya dun see it despite this 'stratification', bro. ;-) Let's not forget that Mexico had its 'black' president (actually zambo), some 200 yrs before Obama was even borned to an E.African dude, & BRA had its (dark triracial president dude) some 100 yrs before ole Yankland saw mulatto Obama. ;-) Today, in most of L.America this stratific8ion is almost negligible. ;-D Stay always sharp, bro. ;-)

@Disaster Looms, great post!

Thats because they aren't Black, they're literally two different races.

Good for them!

It should be renamed "I'm biracial and I'm bitching damn it!"

Your point? But I've never taken it as deep as you lot relating it to biology, breaking down into percentages, claiming to correct in stating what race on is, claiming purity etc. I use it as a merely as label which it is.

Turkish and greeks who live on the Med are deeply tanned and biracials generally look like them. I wouldn't be surprised if Turks and greeks have some black in their ancestry too.
They rarely look Turkish or Greek to me both groups having next to no recent African admixture so that excludes the possibility of recent black ancestors.

Mixed race/biracials (black/white) at times look like middle easterners especially from North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula who have a significant amount of black ancestors.

biracials don't have to be black, but considering the number who actually identify as biracial in the census, it would seem the vast majority do. the problem with biracials who don't self-identify as black is they in the minority, so they have to deal with assumptions bout their identity.

and you right whites defined these standards. in fact the entire aa community is a european creation. how could it not be. aa were chattel slaves for hundreds of years, and went through jim crow for a 100 years after that. who they are was encoded into law!

but the point is once your community is defined and it becomes part of your identity for literally hundreds of years. that's not likely to change anytime soon, if ever.

people don't just wake up one day and decided they gonna change their identity and redefine their ethnicity, which would involve even looking at family members differently.

this ain't gonna happen is the point.

Who Is Black In America? Soledad O’Brien, CNN Find Out In ‘BIA 5

This Sunday at 8 p.m., CNN airs its fifth installment of the “Black In America” series, which is hosted by Soledad O’Brien. In this episode, O’Brien asks the question,“Who is Black in America?” as they tackle the issues of colorism and racial identity. The documentary centers around young women who are part of a poetry program in Philly who are dealing with these issues. I had the opportunity to sit down with Soledad to get her take on what may be one of the most talked about “Black in America” episodes yet.
