    When I was younger I used to not like the fact

    I was half black because for a long time I didn't like my hair and thought I would feel more attractive If it was straight . But now I feel a lot different about it and don't really care about my hair like I used to . But I was NEVER ashamed of being part black just to make that...

    It's weird how it looks like I switched races

    as I aged. My family says I don't look like the same person. I look (mostly) white now, and as a baby, I looked straight up black and a clear mix of every other race from my grandparents. I looked less white than my parents lmao they said people wondered whose baby I actually...

    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...

    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.

    Mixed Race - A Heart And Mind Issue

    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...

    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...

    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..

    This has been bothering me

    for sometime now. Whenever I'm at a public area such as a coffee shop, I get stared at..often. I would sit down, pull out my macbook pro and start working before other customers glance over and stare at me...it's unsettling. I hope I don't look atrocious..
