I'm sorry that your natural hair is not what you would like for it to be.
And if I could take your complex away I would.
There is just so much history behind why you feel the way you do and it will take work to let go of that mentality.
At the end of the day you are left with four choices, resent it and be unhappy, change it at the risk of damage, continue hiding it, embrace it while trying to find a style that works for you and finding inner peace by doing so.
And unless you aren't taking care of your hair the word nappy in it's negative connotation does not apply to your hair.
Being biracial does not determine hair texture, just so you know, there are plenty of biracial people with the tightest hair textures.
I wish for you, acceptance of self. It's so hard out there when the hardest struggle is the one with yourself, it makes it even harder to deal with the external struggles that life might have to offer.
If you focus on your blessings you will find a better way to cope with your struggles.

Congratulations on your survival so far!
The fact that you are typing this means that you made an effort to actually get up instead of laying down and giving up.
Your strength is courageous and admirable. It's so much more than just physicality.
