Mulatto Pride Rap Video

    Viewer discretion is advised, this is a mulatto rap video (Mulatto Hip Hop).     

 


  1. So true

    This is good — but near the end is the best.

  2. Chance

    Glad you like it, you liked the end the best Kool.

  3. Another flatfooted, angry and overly personal response to the sociological issue of race categorization. I guess the rapper is dealing with some adolescent concerns about what others may think of him. I also think it’s interesting that he includes castas paintings in his video. If you look into the history of their role in the culture of New Spain you understand that they, like tv and videos in our day, were created to direct the social order through an accepted cultural form. They represented the numerous racial categorizations that were the result of intermarriage of black, whites and native Mexicans and helped to designate the social order of those they depicted. Some of the terms were most unflattering and ridiculous. For example the result after several generations of intermarriage with whites of an Indian and white person{a Mestizo) resulted in a person called a “turn in the air”, meaning that they became white again, washed all that unpleasant stuff out huh? Sadly, a similar category didn’t exist involving African ancestry which, couldn’t be washed out. That should make you happy Chance. It’s the old one dropper rearing its curly, not nappy, and certainly not too straight head again!! Keep in mind that goal was always to “lift up the race”. Which is why the Dominican government imported German women into the Dominican Republic to lighten the population.. And you thought it was all about love, personal choice and self expression……Aye dios mio!

    My response:
    The rapper is expressing his view about his mulatto heritage, like everyone from other ethnic groups do. I also am convinced that the ODR will come to a major end by 2050. But even by 2030 the ODR will have less affect than it does today. Black blood being viewed as inferior by certain whites, non whites, and even many blacks is not a justifiable reason to punish mulattoes (mixed race people) who have black ancestry that is visible and invisible. I say let people live their lives. I have black ancestry, white ancestry, and Native American ancestry I like all three they make me unique. It is, when one is told by way of society practicing the ODR — that one should reject all other ancestries accept for black this creates a problem. One should be allowed to embrace their ancestries regardless of what they are.

    The rapper embraces all of his ancestries by calling himself mulatto. The mulatto term embraces multiply ancestries.

    Your uniqueness and specialness are exactly the issue. As previously stated in the video and elsewhere on this blog, many people throughout this hemisphere are exactly the same mixture of races. Some say as high as 75-90% of people who call themselves black are in fact mixtures of the three races and that’s only in the US. Your perspective is not new. I know, occupying the middle ground is challenging to people. People want you too choose sides. The problem here is that as you distance yourselves from Africa using the language that is frequesntly used on this blog you seem to be perpetuating very tired and old ideas. I’m not clear what is the so called punished we mullattos are supposed to be suffering under?If it’s not being included among white people–then punish me-it feels soo good!

    My response: First what is this distancing ourselves from Africa that you speak of? And even if a person wanted to do that — then leave them alone, and respect their choice. You don’t need them. Just like we have people who identify as black but are heavily mixed race but we respect their right to be black. The same should be afforded to everyone who wants to self identify as what ever they please.

    Marisol said: If it’s not being included among white people–then punish me-it feels soo good!

    My response: This is an interesting statement. I have seen many blacks get angry when someone claims mixed race (mulatto), these angry type blacks would then make statements similar to the one you made. Some of these angry blacks even call mixed race people niggers and say you will never be accepted as mixed race or white. I say if you like being black, why would you all of a sudden when you want to insult someone who has black ancestry but is predominantly mixed race call them a nigger. The word nigger is a racial insult used towards black Americans. This tells me that the blacks who do this really often have the same hatred, feeling inferior, and dislike of Africa and dislike of black people that many racist from other ethnic group have towards blacks. The statement that you made Marisol, falls in line with the type of thinking and negative insults that many of these self hatred filled blacks display.

    This is one of the reasons why I say mixed race people and Americans in general should have a right to identify ethnicity wise as they please. Many whites identify as Native American but you don’t hear millions of whites going off saying that these whites are just running away from their whiteness, and calling these whites white trash.

    Blacks who hate blackness have a right to hate their race, I disagree with this but it is their right. I say leave people alone and let them identify how they please, America allows.

    My response: Special-ness what do you mean by this? Every ethnic group is special. It is true, that many people in this hemisphere are mixed race, yet they call themselves blacks, whites, etc so they identify by certain racial terms, but many blacks get angry when some mulatto identifies as mixed race. Yet hardly anyone who is mulatto gets angry when a person identifies as black. This is a double standard. Let people live their lives and identify as they please. It is true, that people want you to choose racial ancestry sides. But like I say they should let people choose their ethnic self identity without trying to influence people to do so.

    Also there are black pride type rap song, hispanic pride rap songs, etc so now there is mulatto one. This proves there is room for everybody.

    It is less a matter of what you call yourself than what you feel the need to say about others to justify your choice. This site reminds me of the spouse who leaves her/his mate because they want to and denegrates that person. Just go. I agree that the ODR is outmoted. What is troubling here is the need to constantly repeat negative stereotypes and bogus scientific studies about blacks seemingly to justify your disinterest in being identified as being a member of the same group. I’m not trying to limit the discourse, it everyone’s right to express themselves. But there does seem to be a whole lot of justification going on. It’s like you’re asking: Can you blame us for not wanting to be included among these people? And yes, everyone knows white people’s crimes — but in the effort to distinguish mulattoes as a distinct group, whites don’t seem to be a problem. Like tomorrow if white people said come on in, you wouldn’t be declaring your separateness so vehemently. It is sometimes painful to have to explain yourself to people. I’ve been there and I’m probably, a lot older than you reflected by the differences of opinion on this issue. I’ve personally had people look at me an feel completely justified in asking me who and what my parents are and being, told by mostly by white freinds, to just pass already. And I don’t think I look all that white! So I get it and I’m only asking why the negative stuff about black people? Presumably a lot contributors here have one black relative at least, if not 1/2 their family.

    My response: You already know why blacks are criticized by many mixed race people — because blacks push the ODR more than any other that the reason why. Blacks try to make sure you identify as black and nothing more, whites as a collective group on the other hand whether they agree or disagree in general will not oppose your self identity. The majority of whites will go along with you just let you be.

    What bogus scientific studies about blacks are you talking about?

    My response:
    If whites did this it would help out a lot in establishing a mixed race identity. Then it would be like this if mulattoes are classified white but at the same time can still claim black (and blacks will not object to mulattoes being labeled black like they object now) this would clearly show that the status of mulatto is a separate category identity because you can’t be white and black identified at the same time unless you are a mulatto. Because white and black are unique separate racial groups, and someone who is labeled both will have to have a separate identity called mixed race. This would also help us in our rightful claim to our European heritage.

    Interesting, it seems my video is getting some attention. I should explain I got rid of that vidoe because it was a substitute for my true feelings which are far more controversial.

    1. I dont identify as mulatto, though this is my ancestry. I identify as white, and allways did.

    2. The phase “embrace all of your ancestry” is a euphamism for identify as something other than “white”.

    3. The concept of whitness has little to do with race and everything to do with the mainstream anglo-american culture. Race is used as lock and key to suppress certain people who are not deemed worth of inclusion in our society.

    Hello Mad University,

    I understand what you are saying clearly, and there is some truth to the fact that being accepted as white in culture is a sign that you are accepted into mainstream American society – which is currently ruled and controlled by whites. Look at the Asians, Latinos, and all of the other non whites they are accepted as white in culture basically, and given an honorary white status.
    Now this honorary white status does not mean they are white in phenotype (physical appearance). It just means that white Americans will not mistreat them as bad as they treat black Americans. They can still and sometimes do get mistreated but not as often as blacks. This honorary white Americans status can be taken away from them too, if they incur the collective anger of whites.
    Mixed race is still needs be added to the American government’s census (ethnic census category) because it will open up the door way into main stream America. Also, it will give a voice and an identity to those of us who would like to have our mixed race ancestry recognized in public society. This mixed race category will also open the door to assimilate white Americans by way of interracial marriages into mixed race. This will help mixed race people gain the right to say we are white too. Just like mixed race people are forced to say they are black under the one drop rule there will come a day they will be allowed to say they are white too.
    So mixed race category is needed first, and then the mulattoes can move on into whiteness and conquer whiteness, the way a mulatto can claim black.

    Embrace all of your ancestries are needs to be acknowledged first by doing this, and saying this, you are acknowledging you are more than black only. Senator Barack Obama acknowledges he is black, and biracial due to him having a black father from Kenya, Africa and a white American mother. And, look at Obama he is considered a type of white dude in the eyes of whites and certain blacks. Obama cultural when he grew up in America he was raised among whites, and is seen as white culturally by both whites and blacks. Obama has visible black ancestry, and he is accepted as white. OJ Simpson had an honorary white status but no more due to whites believing he killed his ex-wife (Nicole Brown Simpson) and Ronald Goldman.
    Mixed race is a transition and a proxy into main stream America, and America will become brown meaning mixed race.

    The video was nice, it would be nice if you put it back for awhile or a few weeks.
    Thank you, Mad university for visiting, it was good to hear you relay your thoughts.

    Perhaps I am not as intelligent as Miss. Marisol, however her arrogant attitude and wanna-be distinguished image, has compelled me to comment on her blog. I will simply say that you need prayer. Perhaps you’re not familiar with the pain of not being black enough to fit in. Maybe you were always excepted by members of your race so therefore you never had any identity issues while growing up. You’re really fortunate, but the rest of us had hell to pay in this racist society simply because of the way we look. You’re comment about this site being a senseless repeat of O woest us light skinned folks is totally harsh. We need some type of forum where we can come together to discuss and explore the racial issues that keeps our race divided according to skin tone. Perhaps you’re not familiar with the term intra-racial discrimination or maybe you advocate it.
