Not as much?
Many people who are multiracial simply want to be accepted for what they are instead of being told to chose or more accurately not being allowed. It's a fact that the US government still doesn't officially recognize racial ambiguity as a possibility but you seem to swear by your system being better than ours?
I just want to say that of the estimated 12 million african slaves, 10.5 went to what is now known as Latin America , what you believe to be the penultimate ultimate black experience is all a lie. Theres a reason why post apartheid the black South African party ANC has a re-defined census more similar to the Dominican Republics than United Sates.
Colorism has been an issue since the slavemaster let the "lightbrights" work in the house and made the "darkies" work in the field. We been tryna pass to gain acceptance since the white man got too happy with the help and the first pail slave bastard child was born. It is a shame but we make no secret of it because light skinned brothers been coming back in style since New Jack City. [pic]
I'm not telling anybody to overly embrace every part of their genetic make up. I'm simply saying don't insult my intelligence by telling me that my eyes are playing tricks on me when I see your black features. When people ask me what I am I say black. If they ask if I'm mixed with anything else I admit to having some white and indian in me as well. I'm not going to constantly list every part of my genetic makeup but if the question is raised I'm not going to deny any part either. Why others can't do the same is beyond me. Being in denial and/or trying to distance yourself from all things black doesn't remove the African from your DNA.
