Though I'm not sure how being pissed that I didn't get the hair the rest of my family did qualifies as self hatred. My brother has red hair and it is nice. Me? I have the mutated naps. My only real hair style choice is bald.
Ahh see with further explanation, you hate your hair because your nickname in high school was Patch Adams. Lol. Fair enough.

I actually wasn't speaking about you directly. I meant in general, particularly in America. When doing genealogy many of us learn just where the break in our families occurred. This may not have happened all the time and in all families of mixed heritage, but it did occur in many. All I'm saying is that in today's time, regardless of how society sees you, an individual should be allowed to freely and openly acknowledge all of his/her ethnicities. This is all I was saying.

Only when I lived in Hawaii did this even come up. I was called by my bank to take a survey, and at the end of it they asked for my ancestral background. I said I was of African ancestry, and they said, "Is that it? What else?" I was taken aback, as I had never been asked that before. So then I told the lady everything and expressed surprise that she would ask me that question. She said that in Hawaii, everyone mentions all of their origins, not just one origin. That made me think, for sure.

So, your saying this is prevalent in the media to this day and not something that is in the past?

I'm surprised you haven't started whining about miscegenation yet.

If you haven't realized yet, this thread is about us mixed people. Perhaps you got lost, the Racist and Xenophobia forum is that way... -->
In case you missed it, here are the topic starter's opening words,

I remember a Black friend of mines asking "so let me get this straight, you are telling me a mixed race guy is more attractive than me because he has White in him while I am not good looking because I don't have any White in me?". It was against this college girl who said that and the girl didn't respond.

What are your thoughts on the whole mixed race people are more attractive belief?
Do you understand now that this thread isn't about "Us mixed people?" Perhaps you're the one that got lost. Furthermore, the words you chose seethe with contempt for the other person, and fortunately for you, most of white America hasn't the gumption to point this out lest they be labeled a racist.

While you imply that you're the product of a mixed relation, and you seem to be proud of it, the fact that myself and others don't champion it is a fact. It doesn't make me any more racist than the next person. I love how mutts and "people of color" have a free hand at tossing their tautology about, but let a white person or somebody perceived as white do it, and all the minions react as though this were the Tudor dynasty and we're talking about Catholicism.

I personally see nothing laudable in being proud of your race, hair color, and all things which you've no control over. However, I do realize how the powers that be like to grab more power and are driven by greed, so it doesn't surprise me that there are people out there subscribing to what's on the television and other forms of popular media.

As far as my personal views on mixed race? When light hair, skin, and eyed people mix with Latin people, the children often seem to get the best of both words. If a black and white person mix, it seems as though the products of that mating get the worst features from both, and make the offspring exponentially less attractive. Yes there are exceptions to that, but they're rare, and they still either have a nappy mop or carry the kinky hair gene, which isn't appealing to my eye one bit.

With that, I'm sure the minions will come along and label me all sorts of things, but those are my views, and it's based on what's pleasing to my eye, not yours. Regardless of how attractive you find X mixed person, it doesn't matter to me. The first thing I look at on a person is their hair. If it's not naturally shiny, stick straight, and with a certain hairline, I will never find them attractive. Furthermore, the labels you place on me are just as ignorant as the ones that you're chastising others about. Just because it goes against your bigoted views, I'm supposed to change Coke to Pepsi and suddenly embrace black, mixed people, or what have you and find them to be the most attractive people on the planet? It must be nice having a free hand at the race game!

In closing, this is a biased poll. A fair unbiased poll would be,

Are mixed race people more attractive?

1. Yes
2. No
3. often times
4. rarely
5. uncertain

You look at the eyes and really don't see much of the rest of the face. The average light colored or hazel eyes simply don't have the same effect.

I hate to clue you, Rum, but it's been a known fact for awhile that when the very last Baby Boomer, of which the majority is white, dies, the white race will become a minority in the USofA. White women are no longer restricted to having children with their "own kind" by society anymore.

Oh, I think the light eyes of a half black, half white person who has the darker skin and the light eyes like Jeter, Vanessa Williams and the actor who played Warrick Brown (to mention a few) on CSI are gorgeous! Just my personal taste though.

Yes, I would have answered the poll if it had more choices.

"White women are no longer restricted to having children with their "own kind" by society anymore."
Like someone would want to tell any women regardless of race who they should get married too
