African Americans have mixed since 1619 with whites of many ethnicities and with blacks from other ethnicities (tribes). In the Americas (north, south, and central), blacks had to marry and/or mix with blacks from Ghana, Ivory Coast, Benin, Gambia, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, etc. In countries like Brazil there are still Yoruba and in Haiti there are still Senegalese, etc. However, these latter mixtures would be acceptable to UTB of Atlanta if they are not light-skinned. Or perhaps, UTB will go back to Africa and declare that all the light-skinned people in Nigeria, Ghana, and Ethiopia should be segregated from dark-skinned blacks in those countries. (See how ridiculous segregation of any kind is)

That's because Blacks really hate themselves as expressed in the Rwanda Genocide in 1994 from April to July 1 million Blacks were killed in Black on Black violence, 20% of the total population and %70 of the Tutsi all killed by Black hands with no Whites whatsoever to blame.
You are an idiot. What has Rwanda got to do with the half white lady not being seen as black enough to represent black people in that province? That half cast Obama is not serving the interest of black people in any way. He has also set in motion the exploitation of Africa by American companies in the African leaders summit he held in DC.

They rightly fired her. Whites in position of power feel comfortable dealing with mixed race types than black people. The mixed types will not fighter whitey too hard in the interest of BP. It is in their nature to stay neutral. Neutral people do not make things happen. AA community fails cos they have many of 'em in Leadership positions.

That's not a lot of money to pay to get someone not wanted out of an organization.

There are plenty of non blacks running organizations geared toward blacks, so my guess, she was probably one of the rare few trying to bring a supremacist mindset to the organization based on her non black race and it was rejected. And yes, some biracials are known to hate and/or have a supremacist mindset of blacks...and some even act coy when they are called out on it.

Not to mention, biracials rarely mention their own communities in media. They never mention their own high negatives.
