sorry for the mispelled words...
Once one of my friends told me ” oh you went to Disney land, you’re so white” and then ” this is the type of music you listen to, you’re so black” and this same person told me that white people are the most racist and then changed it to black are the most racsist. My bestie said something racsist about whites and when I went to defend myself she told me I was...

Mixed Inspiration :)
Not only did i stumble upon this article http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/wales/8618606.stm, but I am mixed as well. I work at a restaurant and i see tons of different mixes coming through and it always puts a smile on my face. Not only do we live in time where this is accepted but we are also ahead of the curve. Our genes, our open-mindedness, and our tolerance, i’m sure is more broad and...
Anonymous asked: What makes you mixed? I don't look mixed at all but with my family's backgrounds I think I might be somewhat, but my family says I'm not because we're "white" even though some ancestors of ours were of a different race and they think that only mixed people have parents that are African-American/Hispanic, Caucasian/African-American, Caucasian/Hispanic, or...
My Mother was born in USA, 98% Irish and my Father was born in Tobago 100%.

satanofsuburbia asked: Hi! I'm having a bit of a problem :c I'm Sicilian, North African, and German. My mother is pale as a ghost (along with that whole side of the family) and so is my fathers side (even the African ancestors were quite pale or just really dark olive toned). No one seems to believe me though, its really ..disheartening. I wish I could ignore it but everyone just keeps telling me "oh you...

I am Arab, Romanian, and Irish.Some people just sort of assume I’m part Italian, but for some reason the people who actually ask or decide to guess get it sooo wrong. I’ve had people ask if I’m part Asian, Latina, Spanish, African American, and Native American.Personally I think I look like I’m white, an exotic white, but white non the less. I hate people assuming I’m...
r4v3nc0l3 asked: Well I'm not a mixed girl... But a mixed gay is close enough. When I meet strangers the first thing they ask me is "what nationality are you?" I always say American- they look confused and I mention "oh my ethnicity, you mean? A little this a little that." I've always thought it was amusing to tell people to guess, so here the list of things I've heard: Egyptian,...
You don’t know how happy I am I found this blog. Its so hard for me to find myself fitting in. I’m a mutt. I’m Jamaican (and that automatically makes me black by peoples’ definition) then people get lost somewhere when I tell them my father is Chinese and Hispanic (with European somewhere) and my mother is East Indian. Before, I would just put Mixed when they asked what I...

My mom is Native American (Meherrin) and my father is Filipino & white. Growing up, I was completely detached from my dad’s part of the family - my grandmother, who was a blistering alcoholic and banned me from her home, and my dad’s father (who is from the Philippines) refused to teach me the language or about the culture. I feel more educated about the Native part of myself....

I have never been confused on my race. I am white and black. simple as that. Others would like to say biracial people are ” confused”. what is there to be confused about? growing up I was considered “not enough” to each side. I’m not the one who is confused. I am who I am and I am proud. I do not deny any part of me. at the end of the day it shouldnt matter. I’m...

Anonymous asked: Okay so...I'm mostly Nigerian but along with that I have Cameroonian, English, Cuban, and Brazilian ancestry/admixure. I dont look like the "typical mixed girl" like everyone says, except for some of my features and my hair a bit. My question is, can i still consider myself mixed??
I am glad I found this website, I am always the odd one out of the group and have always felt like I don’t quite fit in, so it’s kind of nice to know I’m not alone (misery loves company) lol Anyways I am 23 years old, my mother is African American and my father is half Caucasian and half Native-American. I am by far the lightest of any mixed people I’ve seen. I have dark...
My name is Desteny. I am Black (father),White,Native American(mother). I have lived in NC all my life and have never fit in with any race. I wish we didn’t even have this concept of race and checking a box. Growing up I was uncomfortable a lot because people didn’t know how to treat me. My goal is to find my authentic self and it’s not easy. I still find it very painful that race...

That awkward moment when you get asked what you’re mixed with and name six different things.Then they stand there and ask, “Well which one are you?” I’m all of them and proud of it!
People ALWAYS ask what I am. I don’t look German, I don’t look Japanese, & I don’t look Hawaiian, yet I’m all three. _-_
Sometimes . . .
when people ask me what I am … I just want to say … “I’m mixed bitch!!!”. I get frustrated sometimes… but I’m always polite. enough said. btw my dad’s German & my mom’s Japanese & Hawaiian.
swagdeul asked: My mom is from Korea and is a Asian/Caucasian mix (50/50). My dad is Caucasian, with a ton of races from German to Irish... So many! >< But I constantly get told that I can not consider myself Asian because I am not "Asian enough" :/ Or I get yelled at for even considering myself mixed because I'm not "Asian enough to be mixed," which makes no sense. =_= I was just...

Hi, my name is Kayla and I’m black, pueterican & American indian. I love being a mixed girl but it’s annoying when people call me a black girl With long hair , im not just black it’s complicated.
beautifulpropaganda asked: Does anyone else have people come up to them and say "omg, what race are you??" I guess it's kind of funny, but seriously, a lot of the people just come up to me in the market or something and I don't even know them, it's odd o.O I don't even look that mixed xD

I live in the United States and have lived in the same place my entire life (i'm 14). I've grown up only knowing my mom's side of the family but I feel like they're the only people I know! I can't help but feel like i'm missing a part of me...

I LOVE your blog. It’s a great comfort knowing that I’m not the only person in the world feeling the way i do. My mom is French Canadian and my dad is from India. People are constantly trying to guess my ethnicity, and when I tell them I’m Indian, people tell me stop lying your white, dont try to pretend you’re something you’re not. I dont feel like i fit in anywhere...

For me, I don't identify with my Pakistani roots that much because I've lived in the US since I was two, but I try to keep some connection (I have family in Pakistan, so I try to keep in touch with them). I wouldn't really say I identify with "white" either, though. I kind of just identify with American culture,...

Hi everyone! This page is very real, awesome, and a true inspiration; I am black, Indian and Chaldean (Assyrian/Arabic). I dont know who my real father is, my mother had a heart to heart talk with me. As growing up in elementary I’d get asked, are you white? or they’d call me names because I looked like something but truth is I did’nt even know who I truly was, So i’d cry...
