There is a growing number of mixed race people (born to parents who are ethnically different from each other), so I'm guessing there is a number here as well.

What are pros and cons of being mixed race?

Pros:
- having my own ethnic identity
- having higher tolerance for cultural differences

Cons:
- can't fit in either world fully
- racism and discrimination from both sides

... It is a good thing to have your own identity, but you really don't fit into either side. Im not half half, but according to people, I look it, even though im 3/4 1/4.... you get stamped with ugly words, but you can fit in... to a point. No matter how strong you feel about one side, and if you want to take one as your race, people will not look at you in that way. You get be labled as a half-breed and such.... and "stuck in the middle" There is racism and prejudice all over the place, people just tend to ignore it and pretend it's not there. Even though I am 75% of one race and I take that side with pride, people argue with me all the time about what I should call myself, because I look a certain way and I am "still not full" and I "should go with what I look". Mixed races are great, but some people are not open to seeing things differently (I'm putting this as nice as I can). Bah... this is just me... I'm sure I'm the only one who sees things like that... but whatever...I have alot to say on this one... but I'm not going to get into my views that have nothing to do with anything and that won't change anything... besides I don't count in this one because I'm not 1/2 (I'm mixed with a bunch of different things but I'm not getting into that) and I have picked my side ^_^... ... Ignore my comment..... Have Fun!

LOL I live in canada... peace loving canada... and trust me... if it is in a place like this... its all over.... ... Anti-white.. LMAO!!! I'm wondering ... is that because the white people are the minority group where you live?? Racism happens most often to the minority groups of wherever... be it asian minority in a black area, or a hispanic in a white area.... its about the numbers... and the amount of ignorance... or at least that is what i've learnt....

... thats weird... and yeah crazy logic all the way. I think thats great, that the Southern States aren't as bad as its made out to be! But then again... people have learnt to keep thier mouths shut because of laws and stuff.... I honestly don't believe that there is no racism from the majority where you live... LOL I think they just keep it to themselves, which I find is worse... LOL at least open racists make it clear to stay away......... I'm getting off topic... I think.....

lol cubans... ah ha! there is the minority that I know gets picked on... See where I live, right up until last week, I seriously believed that racism hardly existed anymore. Even though I've been called names and treated like trash for NO reason... and my cousins get treated MUCH worse... I didn't think that it was that big of a problem.... well i think i got used to it... at least its not slavery is right... but i mean... arent we supposed to be open to everything now?? i figured after all that has happened in history they would let go of somethign as stupid as a skin color... But last week or the week before, the newspaper published that 63% of people where I live are OPENLY racist and prejudice.... 63% is a majority... that is OPEN to admitting that they have issues...... then there was a song that some POLICE officer made... about "if you dont like it here go back to where you came from" and he's not getting in trouble for it....... doesnt that make you wonder?? maybe thats just me....

Racism is everywhere, no matter what you do. My daughter is half asian and half caucasian. She looks more asian than anything. I know that she'll get discriminated against because of her ethnicity, because I have, by ignorant people. I know especially in school, kids can be very, very mean. I feel for her. All I can do, is prepare her for the worst, I guess. I'm really hoping that it won't be as bad for her as it was for me.

LOL that's funny about ur friend... I luv when ppl jump on that stuff.... its like umm... I'm not being ignorant... but yo, you shouldn't stamp people that way... I'm not gonna slam you or preach... but as easy as people slam them for being "welfare collectors", they can slam you for beind a "half-breed" maybe not where you live, but somewhere else... it's the same thing in a way... saying things without knowlege... real knowledge... not just statistics of how many of them sit on thier asses... cuz for all you know, they might have a hard time finding a job because they do not have the education, money to get an education, or expierence to get a job to support thier families... you dont know people so you cant make such a harsh judgement... I'm not calling you a racist, but when you hear people say that kind of stuff let them know its not always like that... these people came for a reason... and there is 2 sides to a coin... theres is alot that you dont know about them and how they are treated...... c'mon... lol I'm talking weird again... ignore it....

I'm a mixed race. I'm half Chinese and half Vietnamese. And I never really got accepted by other people in my Vietnamese school, they picked on me and called me names, so that's when I beat them up. And I never went back to that school.

we are not actually different races, just one: Human.
3 primary species: white -black -asian and many cultures and mixes.

This whole race nonsense was started a long time ago by the so called "upper class" to make themselve fell superior. Any scientist can confirm this.
