But what can you do. Nothing.
Agreed. It'd def be a kick in the teeth there. Just like that white supremacist fool finding out he was an octoroon. LOL!

His lips look the same. I think you're looking too hard at finding any difference.

The same would likely apply to black supremacists not liking white people.

Time and time again, we see way too many Black celebrities and regular folks relaxing their hair, making it blonde, getting nose surgery and even waist/hip reductions. It just seems so obvious that many are changing their appearances to look "White".

Racial Psychology: Why Do Black People Want to be White? | The New Observer

Is it social pressure? The media? Is it because 90% of commercials on television use White actors?

What is the main influence.. what is going on?

Treat me with respect on this subject, I am an Iraq veteran and I am also black.

So what are black people so afraid of? Do they feel that they need to be accepted in a "White World"?
Thank you for your service Sir. I appreciate all veterans and the service they/you gave to this country.

As for your topic, it may be as simple as their father and mother or if they even knew them. Bill Cosby has a pretty good grasp on the issue.

Are there any? No, I don't mean white people wanting to be white people with skin tone. Or white people who want to be a white person with a bumpier butt.

But white people who actually wish they were black.

There was a Greek musician 'way back in the day who actually lived and worked as a black man.

But then there is Chris Rock's standup shtick where he asks the crowd who would want to be him. Nobody ever does, "...and I'm rich," he finishes.

Lupita Nyong'o pretty much dominated award season. Idris Elba is still very big (and hot) these days. not only are these people dark, they're actual Africans.

from what I see, the biggest push to divide and dissect the black community is coming from the growing number of biracials, who really shouldn't have a say since they are outsiders. it's just a loud vocal minority. this is why black people should not be so quick to embrace biracial people, they will understandably have some sort of loyalty to the non black parent, which often causes confusion and chaos. sure we have some shared issues, but we share issues with latinos and Asians, but we don't invite them to be black.
Lupita N'Yongo is actually Mexican.

biracial = having 1 non black parent. most black people have a mixed background, so that IS NOT what I mean. I AM NOT talking about genetics. I am talking about everyday your half black azz comes home to a white daddy or a Filipino mother. are we clear?

No; we're NOT "clear"! I asked how YOU would feel if you tested out LESS than half Black but you ducked the question.
