Lol I don't know...I know a lot of mixed people who love to have a case of mistaken identity, ethnic edition.

PS. I hate the term "exotical"! Goes right up there with "white lust"...Sleepy

Well by "exotical" I meant..."anything but black".

I'll never forget one time in HS I met this girl who I thought was "just white" and somehow we got on the story of ethnic make up. She basically (I sh!t you not!) said "I have almost everything but black in me"...with such a ridiculous amount of pride, it was the moment I realized I wanted to get out of Indiana ASAP.

^^^i agree. however i feel that people often down play things about themselves because someone is always gonna be mad about something.
 
you know folks can't be too proud or too free.
 
mixed people i could see it going either way. depends on how they were interacted with and treated. either they felt tragic mulatto rejection/ridicule and will go with whatever race/people just accepted them or they felt put on a pedestal and will want to continue that fantasy of being special and magical.
 
hell, i'm sure some feel indifferent to the entire situation.

If a mixed person revels in their mixedness would that make them a coon?

Hmmmm would it be better to deny what you are?

Let's also clarify that one can be mixed and not be a white + black mix. So, adding that into the pot, should someone reject half of themselves just to appease the black community's need for acceptance or approval?

Ultimately I'll be having bi-racial children (black + hispanic). I wouldn't want them to reject the PR side just to pacify the black community. I see that as the silliest thing ever. Both cultures are rich, and deserve to be recognized.

Lol no. He's perfectly happy to admit that PRs are no more than a mix of Taino, Spaniard & African. His lips & nose are bigger than mine.

Besides half the time people think he's Filipino! Heads do an exorcist when he breaks out in Spanish in the bodega.
