Lots of people takes a look at me and think I'm hispanic.. some people walk up to me and start speaking spanish and I really don't know it except simple words like XD hola!! ..oh and I'm half Native-American and half White (i can't name them all .------. there's 7 of them). And idk what feature i got, I know I don't got those cheek bones like Natives or their long dark beautiful hair ^^' ..and I don't care what culture I'm from, it doesn't matter

So are you part of a race whose culture you'd like to be more apart of? Do people deny you because of it or do they embrace you? Share your experiences with people's reactions. If you are not mixed, tell us your opinion of people who are. Your views about it can be whatever, just don't be rude

Sorry if something like this was already done.


I'm Somali and I always get asked if I am mixed race all the time.

"You sure you don't have any Arab/White in you from colonial days when you were slaves, how else do you have such "white hair" and light skin" (Serious question I have been asked by a person)
Seriously.

I'm Black, Cuban, Native American, English, and French. My skin is dark brown, but I have long hair and some Middle Eastern features (which is strange because I'm the only one in my family that looks that way and is tall.) I DO have trouble finding where I fit in I hate when people stare at me instead of saying 'hi' because they're trying to figure out what I am. It's probably because white beauty is publicized over here.

My mom and dad are both light skinned. I don't even know how I got this dark.

If you're Middle Eastern, dark is considered ugly in India (or at least not as pretty as light) and yes, I feel ugly as a black girl most times. My city is 90% white and that's all they ever really put on TV. I've been told I look a little Somalian.

Sometimes I wish I was either white or black with next to no hair, full lips, and a big butt. Sure, I'd be representing a stereotype, but I probably wouldn't be feeling as out-of-place.

I look similiar to her. We've got about the same skin tone and hair length:



She is beautiful and since when is she 'dark'?
I do not understand this mentality many have of light skinned = beautiful or white = beautiful.
I find dark skin fucking sexy. Very little can top a Alpha man




Please merciful God will you grant me one wish and lock me in a room or elevator with them and I will do such nasty things to them that I will singe the ears off a Nun and mentally scar anyone listening

Btw
And if you look like her .... well ....



































How you doin'?

I'm vietnamese, and people thinks I'm chinese, japanese, korean. Just becase I'm asian, doesn't mean
I'm that. They don't know vietnam is located in asia. And also don't know other asians too. Only chinese,
korean, or japanese. It just pissed me off. C'mon people. Get it right, bitch.

im partially god... the rest of me is just pure awesomeness in the shape of a man.

no but seriously, who cares? i dont want to piss on your self-deceit but you look asian... you clearly have all the asian features, its just that you cover your face with teddybears and stare like a maniac into the camera (so the eyes look bigger)... staring like that wont make you look more like westerner but it does make you look weird, so congrats :)

i think you are in denial

um yeah, sorry if i was rude in anyway, just like to keep it short and straight to the point
