Sheronda Smith crossed the color line for love in her first marriage. So when she did it again, she and her husband, Joshua, expected the disapproving looks they sometimes got from strangers.

It's high time the Mulatto category returned!

Then we'll actually see just how much the pure Blacks love their mixed brethren!

Now Black men can not say we are exxagerating when we say we see lots of white women with mixed kids.

This is so weird to me.
I just don't understand why black men would even care.
If someone say to me that they see lots of white women with mixed kids I would probably say "that's nice" and move on.
Don't see why something that's none of my business and has nothing to do with me would mean anything.

How many of that 22% do you see on these internet boards? Not many do you? If black women don't want black men they, like any man, will get with women who want them. I know you hate to hear this but women choose men, not the other way around.

Of course hell would freeze over before I would get with a spawn of satan b*tch, but most blacks unfortunately do not think like me.

I don't see why black men online are ashamed of this either? I also believe that mixed people will eventually outnumber black people very soon.

Then you cannot blame some BW for also going IR if many BM do not want them...Why care anyway when the majority of BP will stay with each other like everyone else?

Because the reality is that most mixed kids who are black and white come from unions between white women and black men.

I've been thinking of my father's joke a lot recently. It came back to me last month when scientists reported the discovery of a genetic mutation that led to the first appearance of white skin in humans. Reading about it, I wondered how it is that a minor mutation -- just one letter of DNA code out of 3.1 billion letters in the human genome -- is so highly prized that it has led scores of people to turn their backs on their families and has served to divide people for generations. Discovery of this mutation, combined with recent findings that all people are more than 99.9 percent genetically identical, has reinforced my belief that race is almost entirely a social demarcation, not a biological one.
Just a month earlier, I'd also recalled my father's joke as I listened to a group of students in a race relations class at Penn State University discuss the results of DNA testing that revealed the complicated strands of their racial backgrounds. Most were surprised by what they learned. African American students expected to find some European ancestry in their DNA, but were surprised at the extent of it. White students, on the other hand, were startled that they had either traces or significant amounts of DNA in common with their African American classmates. According to Mark Shriver, professor of genetics and anthropology at the university, DNA testing reveals that 5 percent of white Americans have some African ancestry and 60 percent of black Americans have white bloodlines.
This type of DNA analysis is becoming increasingly popular among people who do genealogical research, particularly blacks who want to identify their tribal roots in Africa. But I have to wonder: Is it just another manifestation of America's obsession with race? Or can it be used to help us move beyond that obsession? Can we get past concepts such as the one-drop rule, which long classified people as black even if they had only a single drop of African blood, or are racial distinctions too ingrained in our culture? In spite of the cultural changes of the past 40 years, I know that there are people who do not want to be part of a multicultural world. To find them, I need not look further than my own family.
Although my ethnic identity is strongly African American, I've always had an awareness of my mixed racial heritage. I learned as a teenager that my maternal grandfather was white. To build a life with my grandmother, who was black, my grandfather, Jim Richardson, cast his whiteness aside and lived in Prestwick, Ala., an African American community near Mobile, from around 1920 through the 1950s. Even after my grandmother died in 1936, he continued to raise his children with a strong black identity and to live among the black people who accepted him as one of their own. During her short life, my grandmother, Edna Howell Richardson, accepted Jim completely as he was, faults and all. Perhaps that's why she never even pointed out his whiteness to his children. It wasn't until my grandfather was hurt in a logging accident and someone called him a white man in the presence of my mother, who was then 6 years old, that she realized he wasn't black.

"60 percent of black Americans have white bloodlines."

Sure it is, but it doesn't look like they're having many kids. Look at the Census, the number one mix in the US is White and Native American, followed by white and black.
