She seems to accept both sides but has a hard time fighting against the box ppl keep putting her in...she said some suspect things but I wouldn't reach as far as self hate. Kadida should've been the one to go into acting because rashida was not good in the office or anything else, just dry and boring. Kadida has the looks and personality.


I'm not talking about her identifying as Jewish, I just learned she did by reading this thread lol. I'm talking about based on her interviews that I've seen previously she gave me self hate teas. And now I'm just connecting the two.

It's hard to talk on this subject unless you've had the experience.


It's only confusing when your parents don't talk to you about race& not give you some "colorblind" speech. Quincy is a known "Uncle Tom" and of course Peggy would only know about being Jewish, she couldn't tell them anything about being black. I have countless cousins with white & Asian mothers and fathers, they don't have issues and never did. They know they are biracial and define as such. Biracial kids aren't "black" & they aren't "white" they are biracial.

This reads just like that novel, Caucasia by Danzy Senna. Just one trope after the other.

Kidada was cool, dyslexic and sporty. Rashida was nerdy, a great student and girly.

I wonder if their parents did anything to counteract their children walking into such obvious stereotypes.

OAN, Kidada and my daughter look so much alike it's kinda scary.

Parents could talk to them, and they may have, but what about when they go out into the world. Are other children's parents talking to them about acceptance of other people regardless of their skin color, culture, sexual orientation, over weight, whether they buy clothes from a Thrift Store.   This may have been put upon these girls by people outside their homes.

She wasn't a stand out or anything, but overall most of the cast was awesome! Loretta Devine, Chi McBride. Heavy D was on it for a while too.

Get out of town. That was my favorite showShocked
