|Wow! Unfortunately, this is all too familiar. I am biracial (Black and Caucasian). I consider myself black because that is what I see in the mirror, my kinky hair, wide nose, thick lips, high cheekbones, and dark skin. I have been discriminated against more by people who look like me than by any other group of people. I am always too black (complexion) or too white. I talk white or act like a white girl because I like the beach, skiing, foreign food and films. Basically I want to experience all that life has to offer and will not let the color of my skin limit my options. |
Any person who writes off another person simply because of their appearance, is ignorant. Ignore Black women who say they do not date Black men. It is a form of self hatred. It is obvious that there is Black blood running through their veins somewhere. When we as a people learn to love ourselves, we can embrace diversity and learn to appreciate and learn from others who are not like us.
Peace and blessings.
