    Black folk did not make the one drop rule, that system was created and enforced by whites who wanted to make sure they maintained power. Traditionally in the African American community there have been all shades from vanilla to dark and we were all bound by the commonality of the struggle against racial oppression and for the most part we got along just fine. It did not matter if you were yellar or chocolate the white man was going to treat one Black person the same as he treated another so there was no need to do all of the bi-racial, multiracial, stuff. Ultimately it is up to the person to decide which culture is more suitable for that particular person, and everybody else should just honor that person’s decision.

    They all seem self-possessed and (like most Black women I know) breathtakingly beautiful. A white woman who once stared at a relative and me to the point of irritation approached us and said that she always considered us the most beautiful race of women on the merit of our skin alone. She was gorgeous in her own right but said that they only had variety in terms of eye and hair color, but we, with our myriad complexions, were infinitely beautiful.

      I have always said that black & white together make more beautiful babies than black or white alone. I am just glad that people take this the right way instead of the wrong way (maybe it’s because I’m careful to always say it positively).

    Multi racial and multi ETHNIC are NOT the same thing most of these people are black wth a mixed ethnicity not race and to be technical ALL Af Ams and Hispanics( NOT Spanish cause they are from Europe and just try calling someone from Spain hispanic and see what response you get) are the same make up racially- African, European, and Aborigine( which means original people of that region). All of this misinterpretation of race/ethnicity is just one more reason why there is SO much division among people who are SCIENTIFICALLY black.

    Im black! People ask what Im mixed with because my skin is so pale and I tell them Im black mixed with black. I find it disconcerting that I identify with black but the rest of the world wants me to embrace something thats just not there. If I were to say I am mixed people would smirk that i was not claiming black. Both my parents are black all of my grandparents are black, even my GREAT grandparents are black. I just come from a long line of high yella people,
