this disturbing trend of calling biracial people ‘white’ when they’re light skinned really needs to fucking stop.
Stop saying shit like ‘well they’re so white so they might as well be white’
‘yeah but they’re only half poc’
biracial people are POC there is no two ways about that.
and y’all wonder why biracial people end up making their own little communities for other biracial people or they end up hating themselves because they’re told they aren’t poc enough.
Stop pretending that black/white biracial folks are the only ones out there. Stop ignoring the afro-latinxs, the ones who have both asian and white ancestry, the ones who are part middle eastern and white, the ones who are both middle eastern and asian. Any combo you can think of they fucking exist.
And stop acting like biracial kids have to be a perfect mixture of their parents. That isn’t how genetics fucking works. Some of us are a deep olive, others are just as black as their black parent, and others are nearly as white as a wedding dress which doesn’t make them white simply white passing.
Stop making biracial kids hate themselves, hate their skin, hate their hair, hate everything about themselves. Stop telling them which side of themselves they should take pride in. Stop telling them how to identify. Stop telling those who are partially white that they shouldn’t shittalk white people, when 99% of the time the white part of their family hates them. They have every right to shittalk white people.
