Agreed. I dont like that word either. Culture is a better word, but the problem with that word is, because of certain things, people have lost their cultures, and adapted to another one that is not originally theirs.... So in the end, you can't really identify with a culture, because you have lost the culture aspect of your (for lack of a better word) "race".... I'm not sure if its clear what I'm trying to say........

I think that racial blending poses an interesting discrepency between how individuals racially identify themselves and how they are racially identified by others. Even if you can prove that your blood is from one race, you may still be identified by your other half (or more).

But even in isolated cultures of one specific "race", regional distinctions and classism take over. This is even visible in America, because even though we are a "melting pot", state lines can be firm and glass ceilings exist for economic reasons. There are devil's advocates who consider "racist (classist, sexist, etc.)" tendencies to be an integral part of human societies. Arabs and queers have become "the new enemy", right?

1, 2, 3... YAY HUMANITY!!!!!

i don't think people who have mixed blood should think of any cons, you are who you are. people just hate people who are different than them. when i moved to kansas in middle school, white and black people would pick on me and throw pennies at me and tell me to go back to china. i got into a fight with a black guy and a black girl. and i am full vietnamese. my family call my bro in law an egg, and he's full white. we just call him that because he loves our vietnamese culture.

Who say mixed-race people should think of any cons? These cons exist whether they and I like it or not.

Idk if I can consider myself mixed, but I have alot of European nationalities in me and I am part Native American. I don't the like word race either, we are all humans on one earth. We just come from different nationalities and have different cultures which we can share with other people and benefit the world Racism is the weakness in peoples hearts, racists hate what they fear or what is different.

I am a full blooded asian Hmong to be precise. . .But I have cousins who are half white half hmong. . .They are soo pretty. Only their white half of the family doesn't really like us associating with them saying we're not christians. . .LOL It still stings especially when family is family right? but to have them say it like that hurts. . .Anyways sometimes race isn't all that matters religions and customs also comes into play. . .

I grew up with my mom saying lighter skins is what makes you pretty. . .So one day as a 12 year old innocent I said to her " so if I marry a white guy and have kids, my kids would have the most beautiful skin right?" My mom freak. . .then she said "light light yellow skin is what makes a girl pretty not light pink skin" LOL I can't believe it has been 12 years since that conversation.
My brother once said to us "You can't marry a black guy cause then your kids will look like charcoal and be ugly." my best friend who is a black jamican girl punched my brother out! LOL we can never let him live it down. .. he was only 8 at the time.

Anyway, I think mix people are the most beautiful, it gives off a mysterious aura. . .I am constantly guessing what nationality they are and wanting to find out more about them. .. maybe it is just me.

New pro: you get to be a racial spy.

It allows you to hear things you wouldn't normally hear if you were clearly a member of an ethnicity.
