if you’re biracial then I’d say that you should choose the biracial option.
1 dominican 3/4, puerto rican 1/4 ( european and native; taino ancestry )
4 not really since I’ve only been raised by my mother
5 dominican because I only grew up with my mother and her side of the family
6 yes. sometimes my family would tease about how light i am. and even at school people would be surprised since i had straight hair and was light skinned. i’ve always felt different cause i looked different than the average dominican or puerto rican
7 no im not ashamed. i think it’s pretty cool and interesting to have such a mix
8 hmmm yea it does because people have a curiosity towards me :)
9 Being multiracial is beautiful because it gives you an open mind to all cultures and ethicities
10 My advice would be to embrace every since ethnicity in you because all those ethnicities play a part in you being born
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 okay with not fitting into a category and I dont care about race. There is more to a person than that.
So I’m just beginning to understand these “mixed girl tag” videos, and they’re pretty AWESOME!
Make a great one, send it, and it will be posted! pinky promise!
Check it out! Thanks, I really appreciate it
you are whoever and whatever you decide you are.
Above all, you’re beautiful.
Thats part of being alive and wonderful as you are.
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 hair and dark eyes. I am ALWAYS being asked “What are you mixed with??” or “Are you this or that?” I try not to get annoyed because I know they are used to being able to classify people in a certain category. People get uncomfortable when they can’t label you. You find this in gender as well. I was raised by my mother (African American) and her side of the family. I always use to wish I was darker so I could fit in with my family and friends, no one likes being labeled “that white girl” or “that mixed chick”. But as I’ve gotten more mature and have gained wisdom, I realize that I love myself and although I still don’t feel like I fit in a lot of the time, I know I am still a great person and beautiful beyond societies standards. **No matter what your mixed with, what you may happen to look like (even though that is NOT what you are actually mixed with), or who likes it/doesn’t like it…. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE***
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 is such a controversy. Even though I am out of school and a young adult people still focus on what race I am instead of who I am. I am not “trying to be black” or “trying to be white” I am fighting to be me,find me. I grew up trying to fit in to a very small idea of beauty and looking bad it’s heartbreaking because I know I was not alone even though I felt soo alone. I like the idea that we are not ugly Society is. I am proud being me now but I still hurt. It is not easy knowing how closed off the world can be when it comes to race but I know what I believe to be true. We are human, that is the only race really. We are a spectrum of beauty.
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. _-_
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.
who has the right to tell you what to consider yourself?
