    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...

    I'm a mixed race. I'm black,

    Irish, Spanish, Chinese, Native American, Siberian, Samoan, French. But I am very dark so no one can really tell I'm mixed.

    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'm Not Mixed But Many People Think I Am

    Both of my parents are African American but a lot of people think I'm mixed. It's kind of interesting. My skin is light brown and my hair becomes curly if I let it grow out for a long time. I usually get a hair cut twice a year--more if I have a job interview. :-) Racial...

    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

    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 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...
