Ive been seeing a lot of mix race people saying they identify as black. Even though they are as white as bleach and dark mix race people saying they identify as white?????

What is it to be black.
What is it to be white.

personally i believe they cant identify as any race but "mixed race" (mulatto) because they both have black and white in them so they should just embrace both cultures and not lean to one or the other. I will like to hear you guys opinions.

At the end of the day, even after carrying out what you personally believe above; the person should choose which side they prefer to identify with, in order to cope with the ongoing and complex conundrum.

It's not about what they are allowed to do. The one drop rule has never ben over turned. They are black, unless they can pass

Well since I have a mixed family, the ideal is to love and be loved by both.
If there is one family of black who fights against or white that fights against, it will be that family who loses everything. Because people are going to love without those who are all boiled up against the other.

I just asked a family teen what she does and she says she tells people she is both black and white. And she is very popular with girls and boys her age, no problem. That is because she is pretty, funny and has a 4.0 grade average and is already accepted to a college at 17. She never uses the term mulatto, that is an olden days racist term. She is an excellent example of the future generation, black and also white millennials.

In case this a legitimate query here is the legal establishments racial tracking breakdown for government record keeping.

English version:

https://www.ons.gov.uk/census

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Census_in_the_United_Kingdom

American version:

https://www.census.gov/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_ethnicity_in_the_United_States_Census

And just in case this is all about the funnies, if you really want to experience the other side:

Try this.


Have fun with yourself.
Once again you bring amazing things for thought and information.
I could say I'm glad the younger generation won't experience anything that cruel. But I think the stronger thing I'll say is to ask everyone this question: If we all were told we could move to a brand-new continent and to be packed up to leave in twenty minutes, what would you want to take with you? Would you take that movie, or leave it behind?!

The kids are like the new continent. I wouldn't want to carry past racist samples as baggage to them. I want them to have fresh ideas and feel capable to meet their future with nothing pulling them down or worries about their way forward. :)
