Let's talk about this again...
What percentage of black do I have to be to claim black?
Cause I might won't make it.

I never understood why AAs are so attached to one-dropping and take offense when others don't adhere to it.

So what if racist whites one drop?  They also see black women as  multiple baby-daddy having welfare queens and  video hoes.  Does that mean it's a reality?

If you have two parents of different races what's the harm in acknowledging both?  I have friend who is 1/2 Polish American and 1/2 Southern AA.  She can wolf down some perogies and the next day she'll whip up some collard greens and fried chicken.  What's wrong with that.

To those pointing out that her ex-husband was a cheating dog, I guess black men, never cheat on black women.  If a man has poor morals he has poor morals.  His color won't change that.  Her marrying "up" at least likely had her walking away with a good settlement rather than having to pay spousal support to the cheater.

Her children are biracial and nothing can change that.

The sooner she gets into a loving relationship with herself, the better mother she will be to those children.

Correct ... it is cultural.

The 'one-drop rule' ONLY exists in Amerikkka. I don't know why it is that Black folks in Amerikkka think alll these Féd up racial situations things apply to THE WHOLE DAGGONE WORLD. Ya'll need to learn something about your own history for goodness sakes.

This rule was part of the 1960s Jim Crow laws in the south createdsby WHITE PEOPE that BLACK PEOPLE are so happy to go long with :( which stated that if a person had “one drop” of black blood in them, they were forbidden to pass as White. Consequently, having that one drop also meant they could not receive all the benefits and privileges allowed to Whites. (Under the Jim Crow laws Whites got better seats on public transportation, had better and separate public facilities, bathrooms, water fountains and other accommodations).

Now, how the heck could these Jim Crow laws ... apply to the whole rest of the world? Duh!

Garcelle is from Haiti so maybe she is not aware of this rule? So she needs to leave the country if she wants her kids to not live under this backward standard.

One-drop rule

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The one-drop rule is a historical colloquial term in the United States for the social classification as Negro of individuals with any African ancestry; meaning any person with "one drop of Negro blood" was considered black. The principle of "invisible blackness" was an example of hypodescent, the automatic assignment of children of a mixed union between different socioeconomic or ethnic groups to the group with the lower status.[1]

Although racial segregation was adopted legally by southern states of the former Confederacy in the late 19th century, legislators resisted defining race by law. In 1895 in South Carolina during discussion, George D. Tillman said,


"...It is a scientific fact that there is not one full-blooded Caucasian on the floor of this convention. Every member has in him a certain mixture of... colored blood...It would be a cruel injustice and the source of endless litigation, of scandal, horror, feud, and bloodshed to undertake to annul or forbid marriage for a remote, perhaps obsolete trace of Negro blood. The doors would be open to scandal, malice, and greed..."[2]

The one-drop rule was not adopted as law until the 20th century: first in Tennessee in 1910 and in Virginia under the Racial Integrity Act of 1924 (following the passage of similar laws in several other states).

Before and during slavery, interracial relationships formed. In the antebellum years, free people of mixed race (free people of color) were considered legally white if individuals had up to one-eighth or one-quarter African ancestry (depending on the state).[3] Many mixed-race people were absorbed into the majority culture based simply on appearance, associations and carrying out community responsibilities. These and community acceptance were the more important factors if a person's racial status were questioned, not his or her documented ancestry. Because of the social mobility of antebellum society in frontier areas, many people did not have documentation about their ancestors.
***

Here in The Netherlands there are a ton of IR relationships and their children are referred (and they refer to themselves) as 'Mixed' and then they explain about their parentage like Suriname (a Black Dutch colony) and Dutch or Indonesian (another Dutch colony) and Dutch or a mixture of any other of a zillion other ethnic groups. But there is no 'special' rule particularily for the mixture of Black with White. DUH!

Mixed is mixed ... and both partentages demand an EQUAL amount of respect. It's ony fair ... otherwise the child starts to feel bad about himself if he can't give the non-Black parent the same acknowlewdgement and respect that he gives the Black parent.

This is the REAL DAMAGE this one-drop law inflicts on mixed children in Amerikkka - it makes them feel bad about themselves.

If she actually made the statement that she doesn't date black men because they ALL cheat, then she got exactly what she deserved! Anyone who speaks in absolutes about any type of social dynamic is a moron.
