    I'm mixed (black and white).

    I have native American and german in me as well. Some guy told me I was pretty typical. I don't think so. I think everyone unique in some way. We don't all look and act the same.

    I love being mixed but it comes with problems.

    For example you get questions such as "how did your parents even get attracted to each other?" and "doesn't it make you feel weird that your parents look nothing like you?" from ignorant people. you get people telling you "you think you're cute/better because you're mixed" and...

    And I really don't care about race,

    colors, or anything of that nature. We are all humans yes? We all make mistakes, we all cry, and we all bleed the same color. So who cares? Color belongs on walls, cars, and things - not humans. Anytime someone ask me what color I am, I simply say "I bleed red so it doesn't...

    We Are Multinese

    Of the early mixed race groups from the 17th-19th centuries, I would have been referred to as a melungeon, which was tri-racial European, Native American and African. (I'm 1/2 Italian, 1/4 Cherokee and 1/4 Black) Other mixed race terms are creole, mestizo, metis and mulatto...

    I'm mostly Chinese, but am also English.

    Most of my Chinese blood is from my mother, and my father's grandmother was Chinese, so though I look mostly Chinese, I don't speak Chinese or anything, but I do like the culture very much. Well, the historic culture, anyway :b I like wearing Chinese-influenced clothing...

    Mixed Race - A Heart And Mind Issue

    I am half Iranian. No one has any trouble with my appearance. It upsets me, however, that one mention of my country often stops a conversation or, worse still, gives rise to some of the horrible misconceptions about Islam and The Middle East that abound in The West. I love the...

    When I was young I used to hate how people

    would stare at me upon our first encounters and ask "what are you?" Like hello, I am a human being just like you! Our country is supposed to be "a melting pot of culture", mixed people aren't that rare! But growing up, I noticed their hesitation, their battle of curiosity versus...

    Scottish-Taiwanese Scotland first always.

    But Taiwan is close to my heart. I used to be ashamed of it growing up, not anymore. Such a ridiculous thing to be ashamed of! I've learnt to love myself.

    When people find out I'm half black,

    they look at me weird. Then when they find out I'm bi, the discrimination goes up a couple of stupidity notches. Idiot: "So you're half black? Must be why you're bi." Me: "What does that mean?" Idiot: "The black side is your gay side, right?" Me: punches them in the face.

    Idk. Forgive me if I'm being overly sensitive,

    but you know what really ticks me off? When a Caucasian person gets a tan and then makes it a point to say "hey look Lexi, I'm blacker than you!" I don't even know what to say in that situation. It just ticks me off..

    I am black and white

    and proud of it! ^_^ although funny story my birth certificate actually says I'm Caucasian because in Missouri they go by the race of the mother if the father isn't present for the birth. My dad was deployed at the time, therefore I am legally white in all fifty states :D lol
