AND IT REALLY IS ..... I CAN ONLY SPEAK FOR MYSELF. AND I DON'T CARE ABOUT SOMEONES COLOR, RACE , OR CULTURE. I HATE TO SAY IT THAT WAY. I JUST EXCEPT EVERYONE FOR WHO THEY ARE. IT'S NOT ABOUT SOMEONE BEING HALF THIS & HALF THAT. I THOUGHT IT WAS ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR HEART.

yeah, but what your cultural backround is can also shape your character  and personality.

Wow this is a very interesting discussion.  I never realized so many of those celebrities were mixed. What is Colin Powell mixed with?? He considers himself black, he told us he was Jamaican. In my opinion it doesn't really matter what they are, we should embrace all colors, races, and cultures. I think that its great that Valtyn celebrates both of her cultures, most of my mixed friends only identify with one of theirs.

THIS IS A TOPIC THAT IS NEVER GOING TO BE SETTLED. SORRY... IF WERE FRIENDS AT 15 AND YOU HAVE 3 DIFFERENT CULTURAL BACK ROUNDS. AND AT 22 YOU FIND OUT THAT YOU HAVE 5 DIFFERENT MORE. TO ME YOUR STILL GOING TO BE THE SAME PERSON THAT YOU WERE AT 15. I DON'T FEEL I NEED TO KNOW SOMEONES CULTUAL BACK ROUND TO FEEL OUT SOMEONE'S PERSONALITY. I JUST EXCEPT PEOPLE FOR WHO THEY ARE. AND THAT'S ENOUGH FOR ME....

what i meant was, different cultures have different ways of doing things. my dad is trinidadian so he is really strict on girls, so that shapes how i react to certain freedoms, my mom is guyanese so she pounds the traditions into my head which end up in my overall character.

if you look at germany today..it is a much more respectable society that americas. you dont see little girls telling their parents to "shove it" over there b/c its not accepted AT ALL. (its not really here, but its tolerated alot better)

WEAVE, BABY SIS ... I FEEL WHERE YOUR COMING FROM. I REALLY DO. I RESPECT YOU 100%. AND I AGREE WITH YOU, DIFFERENT CULTURES HAVE DIFFERENT WAYS OF DOING THINGS.   SO THE ONLY WAY I CAN EXPLAIN IT IS. THE WAY I WAS RAISED WAS NOT TO SEE COLOR, BUT TO SEE WHAT'S WITH IN. IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE WHEN I LOOKED AT YOUR HAIR PAGE, I DIDN'T LOOK AT YOU AS A BLACK WOMAN. BUT AS A VERY PRETTY FEMALE. THAT HAS VERY STRONG VIEWS, AND THATS A COOL PERSON. AND THAT WAS ENOUGH FOR ME. SO I GUESS MY ANSWER IS --- IT'S WHAT'S IN YOUR HEART & WHAT YOU SEE WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR.

No, because if you have light brown skin and caucasian hair you can't say that you are black. I believe you should say i am mixed
