- Nov 5, 2007Pierre,
I agree with you. You are right.
Of course, mixed heritage could be feel pain,
experience, history, culture, and many more.
Hmm, Mixed-Race don't show true
feelings or share with that.
It is hard to show the express toward
feeling to families, friends, etc.
Depend what the person can accept or not.
It could be negative and it probably not show positive.

can come with a flood of emotional pain, not
only not fitting in to a group, but always being made
to feel guilty for being of Mixed heritage.
It's almost like being inside a body that has
no right to be here, where you're just a novelty
or oddity to most people who may find your
mixture pleasantly or disturbingly amusing.
When you appear to look like two races or even
three races all mixed together its liken to blending
stereotypes together also that people believe to be true.
So if your half "Black" and half "White` you may be
perceived as negative and positive at the same time.
AC-DC, for this alternating current can cause
serious damage in a hurtful and inhumane way.Pierre

I understand how you feel about this.
That's true, I noticed what people act strange or odd behaviors.
They feel about "mixed race" because it could be hurt or whatever.
Depend how they feel comfortable or not.

questions are hearing "What are you?
Because explaining all the time to them
"Why your different, and being made to
feel like a alien that doesn't fit in.
People think everyone should look a certain
way, and if you don't look like you suppose
to look then they feel they must correct
or investigate why your a puzzle to them.
Being unable to place you into the
proper BOX` can even anger many
people who need to fill in the DOTS.
Mix race people are a threat to the
visual perceptions of race, because
society has a grouping system that
we all belong to willingly or not.
But on the other hand, some people may look
away, rather than to acknowledge that you
exist, and also feel embarrassed by their
own social curiosities regarding race.
Because if they look at you they know
that you know why their looking at you.
Because its obvious that you are DIFFERENT.
Personally i feel both behaviors are annoying!
its all part and parcel of a never ending need
for us as human beings to judge each other.

I'm pretty sure everyone hear has heard "What are you?"
But as I thought about it, remember how whenever
I go anywhere, people tend to stare at me,
and everynow and then, I hear about
this from other Multi-racal people.
So the question is here,
What's more annoying, people asking you 'What'
you are or people trying not to stare at you?
