So I was scrolling through Instagram and happened to see this. For those of you who don’t know, Sami Miro is the person who is dating Zac Efron. She also happens to be related to me, which makes this extra irritating to see.
Although Sami is mixed, when you see her people just see her blackness. In this anti-black society, she constantly gets hate because she’s dating a white celebrity. It’s upsetting that my own relative has to deal with this type of ignorance.
Honestly tho I’m kind of annoyed with how she handled the situation as well. It doesn’t matter that she’s mixed, it’s her blackness that was being attacked. Like, I really don’t see what she was trying to do by pulling out these fractions (which btw our own black family lowkey questions where she came up with them lmao). Idk I just think she could have responded better in this situation and a few things she said rubbed me the wrong way. I’m glad she called this person out though. She usually just ignores the gross racist comments.
This whole thing is ridiculous and I hope her boo says something about it too. I’m tired of seeing his tween fans say racist shit about her and getting away with it because “they don’t know any better” or whatever. It’s disgusting and they need to be put in check.

soo how is sami people indigenous to finland? do they came before european finnish people or somthing?im still a bit confuse where do they came from and what makes the different from another non sami finn

in a nutshell they came to finland/fennoscandia before finns and from a different route. According to some theory, Sami people were probably the first Europeans to enter Europe.

The origin both of Finnish and Sami people is a bit unclear but you can see a small difference in genetics which proves the different place of origin. (also, ome newest genetics researches also show that there is a greater genetic difference between eastern and western finns than in between of french and germans)

In Finland you’re officially a Sami person if:

  • The person themselves or at least one of their parents has learned some Sami language as their first language; or 
  • is an offspring of a person who has been marked as a “lappalainen” (aka Sami, that word is seen as offensive by many these days so I don’t recommend using it) in tax rates etc.; or
  • at least one of their parenis or would have been entitled to vote in Sami Parliament of Finland.

I definitively didnt want to make you feel bad or have to write a "ten page essay", because in not calling you a bad person. I just thought of how it would feel for someone who isn't a celebrity it might be a lil weird and uncomfortable to have people writing posts about them on the Internet. lord knows Sami's personal life has been strewed enough, with someone leaking his work place and such, I didn't mean to be offensive.

I appreciate you coming back, but honestly, it’s not just your ask.
I feel like whenever I think about how hot Sami is somebody is ready to jump on me for it, and let me tell you that is a lot of people. I appreciate your concern, but I also think in the grand scheme of things I have no control over what happens with what other people decide to do. I know that I will do whatever I can to stop it because of who I am as a person, and that should satisfy me.
But it doesn’t, because I hold myself on a higher accountability than I do anyone else. I dunno, I just wanna chill. whenever I find out someone on tumblr has posted about me being cute (usually CHEA tbh) I’m flattered as hell. idk I’m at peace with it. He’s super fucking gorgeous.

In the words of Forrest Gump: That’s all I have to say about that.
