I met a lady by that name in an AOL chatroom.

My name is Micah, I've been a member for a
while, but am just now introducing myself.
I am from South Florida, but
currently living in Atlanta.
My lineage is African, British,
Creole, Polynesian, East Indian,
Native American, Asian and Spanish.
I am glad that this group is out there
to support our "Generation-Mixed",
also to educated others about us.
I feel that it gets hectic and frustrating
at times just "educating" others alone,
because I have experienced some
frustrating situations regarding race.
For instance, I've had people blantantly
blurt out racial remarks about certain groups
without knowing that I was apart of them.
I've had people tell me I wasn't black enough,
say that I thought I was better than them,
tell me how lucky I was and once this guy
told me to go back to Puerto Rico, lol.
Don't get me started on the "One-Drop
Rule" -- which is complete rubbish.
It just seems like when you've educated one,
then five more "uneducated" people show up, lol.
Just makes me laugh and think ... here we go again.
I'm just happy that this group is here
so that we could share our experiences and
support each other in our possible struggles.
Being Multi-racial has been a gift
to me, because it's opened my eyes to
many different cultures, traditions, etc.
Therefore I am open minded when it comes to life.
That I am thankful for.
Thanks all! Have a good one.
