I know this is an old post but this is still going on and its really really annoying to me. I see more and more young black women lying about their backrounds. Any you are absoluely right when you say its the ones that are clearly black. It would be the one with the darkest skin and courses hair claiming that they are half white or spanish. Its like get a grip be proud of who you are black is beautiful embrace it. Why not? Everyone else embraces their race.

Everytime you aske someone, usually someone younger what their race is, they half to be half puerto rican or indian or dominican or something you know they are not. I'm not tryna call everyone liars but what drives a person to lie about their race. The worse is when a person say's "Oh I'm not black my skin is just dark" and you know their lying because they have the same course hair and dark skin you do and they can't even really identify with the race they claim to be. Are we that ashames of ourselves?

it's simple many black people have an inferiority complex due to living in a white dominated society where blacks are the bottom of the barrel and looked down upon by whites and other races who have also being brainwashed like blacks to have a white is right mentality. they feel the less black they are they're they're more closer to being equal to other non black races. it's really nothing but self hatred
Another poor ass excuse.Your the only race that is not egual and that is your fault.No one has held you back.Your future is a failed future because you live in the past and blame others for your lack of common sence among other things.If you want to be so freaking equal then stop being so freaking different.Your only special in your own eyes.In everyone else's your lazy,ignorant,ect.You have no values unless they come from Mcdonalds.Stop making excuse thats not a way to become equal.

I know someone who claims to Irish, Scottish and Indian and Aboriginal(Australian). Because in Australia people think it's bad to be Asian, I called him an Asian since he "claimed" to be Indian. This infuriated him and he immediately changed his so-called "Indian" ethnicity to American-Indian. I personally think that is a load of rubbish.

I am mixed with black and white and my skin is the average color of biracial decent and I am reading these comments in amazement. Why I think people lie about they're ethnicity is they believe it makes them look better in the public eye and as someone else said we are in a white is right based society. My step brother he once told me he puts on applications he is hispanic which he is but usually he calls himself black but he does that because he thinks he will not get the job if he checks off black. I hate to see people lying about being whatever ethnicity. Also we always want to dogg black people but we do come across some white people who want to be "down" but we always seem to ignore the fact that it does go both ways and we as a nation need to relize that/

One of my old childhood friends used to do that. In middle school she began telling everyone her mother was Puerto Rican (and me being close friends with her family knew better). She wasn't the only one. The shock I was in for at my school graduations when I met the families of these self proclaimed half Mexicans, half Puerto Ricans, half Dominicans, half Brazilians. Just your average African American family. I've always wondered why they did that - pretending to be someone they're not. I mean what did they get out of it?

AA's have been mentally abused for over 600 years.
I say 600 because that was when the first black slave was brought over. Because of this many state they are mixed or simply outright lie.
I had a totally ghetto chic tell me she was greek.
I was like "uh huh" and I'm Ali Babba and Moses-1 is the 40 Thieves. What I find very odd is that the mixed girls like Moses-1, seldom mention their ethnicity; while the non-mixed girls claim All races except for West Africa where they really come from.

This is very sad and embarrassing.
But I do understand the reason and logic: mixed girls that are cute to attractive with predominately white features like Moses-1 clearly do get treated better by White Men and do get a certain degree of privilege.

I'll use Moses-1 as an example, she has cursed out every black or "suspected black" on the forum; but knows all white users and devouts 99.99% of her time talking to Whites.

Because sista these days are ashamed of thier race. They think that just saying they are straight up black is boring, and they wish God made them black, nd white, or black and mexican. They think everyone is pure stupid, Because they know damn well that they look 100% BLACK. They think being mixed raced, or light skinned is more attractive, But me as a darked skinned African sister is proud of my race, and boy look at me all the time, even black boys, so i dont know why yall sistas, being fake hoes,

That's extremely sad :(
reading this forum might lead people to believe that. Most blacks even if they are mixed could give a flying [email protected] about what race they might be mixed with. I can't think of a single one that I've known. they could care less also about this forum or posting anything on it. I dare say 90% of Blacks would more likely deny racial mixtures. Being Black is what they celebrate. Their heroes are Black so why should they want otherwise.
