mixed raced

love-dreams-unless-delusional  asked:

So I got in a heated discussion with someone. I made a slave joke. You know a joke. And someone said it was offensive cuz their origins were black. I went "so? All races were enslaved. My ancestors were Jewish people who escaped hitler. I ain't offended by Nazi jokes cuz it didn't happen to me" then she had the gall to lie to me about her being a slave. After I debunked her slave claim. She started insulting me for not listening and believing.

Sounds like an absolute bitch. I’ve made slave jokes plenty of times and I am mixed race (half black, half white). It’s just a fucking joke and people need to learn to get over that.

Also, lying about being a slave is both fucked up and stupid. If she is referring to slavery in the 17th and 18th centuries, she wouldn’t have even be alive.

The first person I was able to complete a video for was and is Christopher. Please listen to his story as a mixed race individual who has lived in both Japan and the United States!

GOD being mixed sucks sometimes but i wouldnt trade it for the world as it makes people so pissy and i love it

Its so infuriating

There’s nothing to be ashamed of because  your a mixed race. I’m half black but majority white, so I’m more pale, and was  made fun of at school for being so. I was raised by christian Mexican family that is also mixed. Why can’t people just have respect for other peoples difference.

I was delighted to find this tumblr.

My name is Joy Hui Lin, I’m a half Thai and half Chinese entertainment writer and poet. My Thai family is considered dark/tan which we’ve always said must mean that we’re part South Asian from a long while back. In Thailand being a Chinese-Thai which are the fairer skin citizens is the ideal. All the women on the TV programs or commercials are fair skinned and of course there are skin bleaching creams galore advertised nonstop. As I’ve gotten tanner my cousins on both sides tell me “You’re like a black person …” in a tone of equal parts insult and dismay. My sisters and I stand around while our other Asian friends remark with disappointment to their children, “You’ve gotten so tan,” after a frolic in the sun.

I wanted to submit my picture because when I was 18, the whitest most popular football jock in my biology class asked me after a long and sunny tennis season, “Haven’t you ever heard of sunblock?”

And this is for my niece who wishes she had blonde hair like Princess Aurora because “she’s the most beautiful.”

I’m happy to be considered “dark and lovely.”
