MIXED RACE PEOPLE ARE A MISTAKE
THEY ARE OF NO RACIAL CATEGORY..JUST MIXED UP CONFUSED ARROGANT EGOTISTIC INDIVIDUALS THAT LIVE IN AN ILLUSION THAT THEY ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS.
THEY ARE INDEED LIVING IN A dream.

I think it is a good thing for those who aren't ashamed of their biracial/multiracial heritage. They should be allowed to select all races that apply bc that is what they are.
But you only what your parents are, and not your grandparents, people kill me when try to claim native american or white from 3 or 4 generations ago

<quoted text>That is so true unfortunately when the Media or average person on the street say Latina they automatically think of Non-Black Latinas such as Eva Longoria, Sophia Vergara and that chick from Ugly Betty America Ferrara. They NEVER think about Chloe Zaldana or Christina Milian as being Latinas. Oh well.
What's funny is Hispanic is not a race.... its a culture, just like Americans is a culture.

Alot people dont know there are more Afro-Brazilians than they are Afro-American. And Half of Cuba is populated with Afro-Cubans

Uuuuuuhhhh,if you had any intelligence most people on the Western Hemisphere of the world have other races in them even though they look like a black, white person etc! Afro Americans have way different features from Africans.Most people are prefer their own kind despite what the medias blows smoke about!!!

Nop. Brazil has more Afro-descendants than America, roughly 150 million. There are only 30-40 million Afro-Brazilians regardless of their skin color in cultural term, & hardly 12 million real 'negro' people. Similar w/ Cuba. For example, I'm (half) Brazilian Afro-descendant, in the same time Afro-Brazilian by the culture, but not 'negro'. Axé! ;-)

I was watching a tyra banks video on youtube a while back. She had a group of biracial woman on her show. This is what had me saying WTF. The biracial women on the show did not like to identify themselves as black or "ghetto" as one woman on the show said.(You should have seen all the black girls faces. LOL.) Anyways, the women identified themselves as a seperate race. They considered themselves "BROWN." Some of the women even considered themselves latina because of their skin color even though they were half black. smh.
I actually saw a Tyra Banks show like that but it was the reverse this time and it wasn't all the biracial black girls, only one of them didn't want to be called black or ghetto; and her mother was african american/white american father. The other 3 black biracial females actually had african american mother, 2 had white fathers and 1 had a Puerto Rican father they all wanted to be called black/african american for the fact that they were only raised with their black sides, non of the those biracial females fathers were there for them or in their lives except for the one that didn't want to be called black, she even wanted to be part of the KKK and she looked black not the other 3 females that had black mothers. To me it is how you are raised and what race your mother is that will determine how the biracial child will identify mostly from my experience. Maybe you were watching another episode but I'm guessing if it was a another show on the same topic those females that were black biracial, I am suspecting majority of them had white mothers.

Bi-racials can choose what they want to identify with but the question still remains...how will society view them? Obama can say his mother is white all day long but that doesn't change how our society view him. Our outer appearance is how we are truly identified. Claiming mixed doesn't really matter unless this affects how society view you. As long as Black Americans are here, the bi-racial who look mostly African will be viewed similar as a Black American even if they don't want to be viewed as such. And It doesn't matter to me wheather a bi-racial doesn't wanna view him/herself as a Black American. I'm just speaking of reality.

That is hardcore but I agree they are mixed up because bi-racials can be any race. They can't really say they are a race because you have both black and white variations of bi-racials. They can only identify with someone else race unless they create another ethnic group similar to Latinos or Puerto Ricans which could probably happen if they get large enough in numbers.

There is no way to breed Africans out. That is impossible. If the Universe ever reset itself....the 1st people will just be recreated over the same way as before.
