    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 am mixed race but white passing.

    My mother is Chinese and my father is Caucasian. However, I do not look Asian at all, unlike my brothers who look like there heritage. i feel like it invalidates my culture and people do not take me as seriously as others because I do not look Asian. Help?

    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 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...
