Hair Texture And Mixed Ancestry

Hair Texture And Mixed Ancestry
 

There are various textures of hair among humanity. When I observe the various hair textures of mixed race people who are mixed with black ancestry I have noticed that some mixed race people have people who have hair textures that are not very coarse. In general the majority of black African hair textures are coarse. Now in some parts of Africa like Somalia, Ethiopia, and Djibouti you will find many people with strait recessive hair or hair that is curly but not coarse. In all parts of Africa there are people with strait hair curly hair that is not coarse, and coarse hair textures but most black Africans have coarse hair.

When one observes the Multigenerational mixed race people who are mixed with black ancestry in America — you will notice that many of them have coarse hair. I am not talking about biracial people, but those who are mixed race in phenotype but they are not the result of being mixed because they are bi racial.

In Puerto Rico the multigenerational mixed people are called trigueno and trigueno literally means the color of wheat. Trigueno population has many people among them who are mixed with black, white, and tanio Indian. Many of these mixed race Puerto Ricans from the trigueno class have hair textures that are not coarse.

Many of them have hair that is a combination of black and white texture therefore, not coarse or too strait but in the middle, and some have strait hair like white people. There are some mixed race Puerto Ricans who have coarse hair.

When you go to Cuba, Dominican Republic, South and Central America, and Brazil you will notice that their mixed race populations that have some black ancestry in their blood lines have many members with strait hair or hair that is not coarse — but hair that is a combination of black, white, and native Indian.

The reason why the mixed race populations that are mixed with black of Mexico, South & Central America, Brazil, and the Caribbean islands have more members with strait hair and mixed race hair texture is because these populations intermarried at a higher rate with blacks.

Wherefore, in America because of the one drop rule (ODR) that says one drop of black blood makes you black forced many white people not to intermarry with blacks. The one drop rule forced a color line to be drawn. You were either on the white side or black side of the color line. After slavery only a small percentage of white men and white women had children with blacks. Also before the 1960s, only a small percentage of other ethnic groups intermarried into the black population of America.

Due to the ODR Many mixed race African Americans were forced to intermarry back into the black American population (African American). The result was that many of their children were born with coarse hair. Only a small number of the mixed race people who have black ancestry were and are born with strait hair or mixed race hair texture.

So intermarrying into the black race, white racism, segregation, Jim Crow laws, and the ODR are the reasons why many mixed race people have coarse hair and not strait hair. 

Had there been no Jim Crow laws, and no ODR many whites and members of other ethnic groups would have intermarried within the black population and produce children with strait hair.     

In 1967 the supreme court of America removed the one drop rule and eliminated anti miscegenation laws. When anti miscegenation laws were removed in the 1960s many blacks, whites, and blacks and members of other non white ethnic groups started intermarrying with each other. Many bi racial children are born with coarse hair, many are born with strait hair, and some are born with mixed race hair texture (combination of black and some other ethnic group).

Love comes in all shades.    

Intermixing among ethnic groups produce a variety of phenotypes (physical appearances), and mixed race people should embrace all of their ancestral heritages.

    quote from your article ”Due to the ODR Many mixed race African Americans were forced to intermarry back into the black American population (African American)”

    you made it sound like they were passive recipients. meaning that these people (mix people) wouldnt have love their spouses as a result of them been force into marriage with blacks.

    i really cant believe you obssession with colour, and this article i dont know what to say.

  2. Chance

    But you keep coming by reading this blog Huh?

    Of course they would have loved their spouses they married them correct.

  3. Cee Cee

    And what is the point of this topic?

    you are an idiot. making stupid comment like that.

  9. yo

    See look how there so quick to call people names.

  10. !!! Light & Beautiful !!!

    “Yo”,

    You are absolutely RIGHT!

    Light-Skinned people do NOT go to black sites/blogs and comment and complain about what’s being said/written on those sites?

    Dark folks take it a step further: The seek out and actually search for mixed race blogs so that they can put their 2 cents in — as if we really care what they think!

    Good comments, “Yo”!

    Ok wait…I thought lightskinned was still considered to be black? Your speaking as if there is a difference. Ok there is a difference in color but your saying “black websites” like some light-skinned people are not black? Clerify please.

  12. Thetruthis

    Look I am a light skinned black woman who is often accused of being bi-racial by blacks and whites and after reading a few of your articles on this website, it seems as though you are completely obsessed with color and hair textures. And obsessed with being MIXED as you call it. Or mulatto….why people want to call themselves donkeys is beyond me but anyways….Some of these articles can be informitive, you just have to weed through all the bullshit. When I saw the title, I thought you were going to touch on some real shit. But this article was absolutely useless. I get the feeling that you don’t like being black. And you know what I find funny, is that my brother and I have the same parents , just he came out dark skinned with tighter hair texture but no one ever asks if he is “mixed” with anything. People automatically assume that you have white or the infamous term used by blacks ” you mus got indian in yo family “. Sickening. On another note, I think the caracter ” yo ” is a complete idiot and all of their comments are dumb as hell and the spelling was so bad that I couldn’t even understand what the hell you were trying to say….

  13. yo

    Thetruthis:
    Light skinned blacks are mixed to .why are you trying to act like light skin black and biracial are two different thinks?How do you think light skinned black came from threw race mixing.Iam tried of people acting like there pure black when they`re not.Just because you are light skinned and born to black parent doesn`t take away your mixed race background someone had to be biracial to make you light skinned and with curly wavey hair this why blacks come in all colors its threw race mixing with whites.

  14. yo

    Just ask yourself how come there no light skinned african tribes in africa??Where are there any ligth skinned african kingdoms??There are any zero If so called light skinned blacks are so pure , I don`t no why some of us act like this just because you have a darker borther or sister doesn`t mean nothing biracial people have the samething and there are mixed just like the ligter brothers and sisters.

    Ever seen a naked light skinned pure african woman with curly wavey hair with mixed featers running arund in africa ?????hell no.

  15. yo

    Wen i was growing up i use to think that i was pure black becuse i would see mixed race people and i would see light skinned black people one born to two diffrent parents of diffrent races and one born to people who called themself black eve thouth they no that they have white and natvie american ansety but because of the onedroprule they have to call themself black only.Then one day i ask my mom how did i get my light skin and curly wavey hair
    she told me that we were mixed with white,black and natvie american thats how i found out i was not 100% black so stop trying to pretin you are 100% anything thats total bull if does`nt matter if your brother is dark it doesn`t change anything you are mixed just like people who call themslf biracial.

  16. yo

    I think some people just lie to themself preting that they are pure black just so they wont get picked on by black people.By acting blacker than the black just look at how some light skinned people act trying to make up for there light skin by acting harder than the hardest black preson doing everthing they can to be down with black people even hateing on white people and some light skinned people for acting to white.

  18. proud black man

    @ yo
    like Thetruthis, am a light skin African, does this mean am mix?

    I can assure you that this is not the case with me (as either of my parents are White or mix).

    For the record i think you are making an arse of yourself. If I were you, I will stop placing stupid statement on this site until I get my uneducated myself some information of race.

    PS
    BY THE WAY, YOU ARE AN IDIOT, AN UNEDUCATED ONE AS WELL.

  19. yo

    I real don`t belive your a light skinned because light skinned people should no by now that there no such thing as a light skinned pure African exspcialy coming from America and Latin america and even Africa exself .

  20. yo

    I think you should look beyond america and look at africa .The people that look like light skinned black american in africa are real mixed race people and they are not called africans/black they a called Coloureds

  22. proud black man

    Yo

    Go to africa and see. you fool. You are like the millions of Americans, whose idea of the world is based on what you see in American TV and can not be bother to educate themself on the issue that feel they know nothing, but rather voice their opinions which is founded on racist, ignorant and stupid theory that is promoted in you media.

    From your stupid comment i can tell you have not travelled out of American, and probably think that Africa is a country.

    You are probably one those ignorants American who think that all Blacks in the world have the same culture just because we share the same colour and phenotypes.

    For your information, the rest of the world does not obsesses about skin tones or race the way the Americans does.

    All those nonsense about how Black men go for light skin women, only applies to African Americans and not African (that i can speak for), and to judge the Black race base on what your see amongst the Black American is stupid.
    To do so is conform what the rest of the world are saying about the Americans, which is that they are loud mouth and stupid.

    Just take a look at the election…, you guys are electing a person to be the next president of your country based on his race rather than distinctions and policies. How stupid are you people.

  23. foreigners

    @ proud black man (such a tired pseudonym) –

    Regarding your previous input, please be advised that most Americans DO NOT CARE about your foreign (boorish) opinions.

    Suggestion: Since you believe you are so “above” American bloggers, why don’t you blog your foreign a$$ on the blogs in your country?

  24. Dentist

    I think that “proud black man” is an anti-American IDIOT; and you really should proofread before you click “submit”, stupid-ass.

    You have the nerve to talk about American politics and you, weiner, live in a country run by a freaken queen. Shut your stupid butt up and get lost. No one cares what you have to say.

    Truly feel hatred for you, you black fool.

  25. Cee Cee

    YO… did u spell the word “mention” menchine? LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. proud black man

    Am just voicing my opinion, dont hate. i like Americans that are intelligent and dont to hold narrow views of the world based on you unsophicated media. You guys are so quick to criticize me based on my opinion of the State.

    By the way am black British and very proud of it. Black American who are not mix should be proud of the Blackness.

    i just have touched a nerve to provoke such reaction, in other word there most have been a element truth to my comment.

  27. proud black man

    @ dentist and foriegner

    Your stupidity and ignorance goes with saying. Have a conversion, voice your opinion without letting yourself be carried away by your emotions. (A very typical American behaviour, you lack of inability to think before speaking).

    Lets talk about your election. talk about your current president, whom is a fair reflection of how the world see Americans.

    Lets talk about racism in the state, the injustice that people of colour faces on a dialy basis, the American negative perceptions of Black Americans, and how this perception inhibites the progress of black Americans.

    lets talk about how you mix people have allowed the negative stereotype about Black Americans portrayed by your unsophicated media be the determining factor of your dislike for Black and wanting to segregated from them.

    lets discuss, and hold the insult remark.

    i like to come to this site, because it confirms the stupidity in your country. and is a real laugh to me

  28. yo

    You must have angry black man syndrome i guess its like have down syndrome getting all hyper over nothing .Go take your blood pressure medication an angry black man is a terrible thing to waste.

  29. proud black man

    Yo

    you are stupid…, am not an angry Black men…, unlike your native blacks, i do not faces any form of injustice in my country. so there nothing to be angry about.

    Angry Black Man syndrome, please dont make me laugh. i dont have a problem with mix people, only the individuals like yourself that are stupid and obsesses about their skin tone and race. if anything i think mix people on average are very beautiful people. But that does not excuses the stupid remarks made on this site about the Black race.

    I also have a problem with stupid ignorant people. and it is fair to say that am Anti American, why ? take a look at the worlds we live in today, take a look at iraq, global warming, new orleans etc and this is a reason to be anti American. But off course you wouldnt know about that , because you are too busy obsessing about your goodlooks, good hair, light skin tone, race , and your uneducated American lifestyle.

    Even some Americans are Anti American, because of the Bush government and some stupid American like yourself that cant see pass race.

    Yo, dentist, foriegner. proud ugly man, get a life and look at the world around you. fools.

  30. proud black man

    yo

    Your parents most be really proud of their daughter/son. Because they didnt teach you how to respect and tolerate people in spite of their race. As someone of mix background i would expect that it would be a corein your parents transmission of your primary socialisation.

    As a black man, am very aware of the racism that certain people face, and it is this awareness that had allowed me to treat people with respect they deserve in spite of their race.

    travel, it will allow to develop a great insight to other peoples culture, and therefore tolerances. The world is not just America, there is Europe, Asian, African caribbean etc. travel is knowledge, something that like yourself most Americans lack immensely

    save the insult.

  31. proud black man

    yo

    Are you offended? if so, thats was not my aim. The aim was to give you a taste of your owm medicine. is not a nice feeling to be at the recieving end of a negative stereotype and insult.

    Sorry if my comment offend you…, but your comment and your inabilty to make sense in them, fit the negative stereotype held by millions european and others in the world.It doesnt mean that all Americans are like that, i have actually met a number of educated Americans. AP on this site happened to be one of them.

    by the way i still think you are ignorant (probably vain and bitch)

    Am still anti American (Or perheps anti Bush)

  32. yo

    Don’t waste your precious time on these ignorant fools. I had the same debate recently, and decided Chance and his cronies were brainwashed.

    Like you, and an earlier writer, Thetruthis, I quickly realised many on this site were not interested in real debate with black folk – or anyone with a different view – because they are ASHAMED of their blackness.

    To hell with them.

    ASHAMED of blackness man please ,iam both black white and native american i like them both .Both of them have ups and down not one of them are good or bad.If you dont like biracial sites stop going on them stay on black site where we can`t see you.

  37. Denise

    I bet that half of the people who make ignorant comments on here about blacks are probably darker skinned blacks themselves; this blog is probably a way for them to vent out their self hatred. No one knows what race or skin color someone is on a blog, you can be debating with a skinhead Nazi and you won’t even know it. Chance could not even be biracial or even a man come to think of it; we do not see a real picture of him, only an animated one. In reality, most biracial people of African Ancestry donot act negatively towards blacks, only the ones with issues do.

    Yo said:

    My response: You can’t see anyone on this website either, so what difference does it make if they are on a black blog or a biracial blog.How would you like if a white blogger said, mutts don’t belong on here, only pure Aryan whites, you would become angry, so do not say things to others that you would not want said to you.

    Well denise, I see that darkies get angry as well. 😉

    btw, I have seen Chance — he is a very light honey-colored beige. He is so obviously mixed race (and, I might add, quite good-looking too)!

  39. Cee Cee

    I don’t know where some of you people are from, but ALL of my lighterskinned black friends consider themsleves black because that is what they are. yes they know that there is some white in their genes, but they have corse hair, full lips and hips, and wide noses like the rest of the negroes LOL, so therefore they can’t identify with any other race but black. Those features are not what we usually see on a white person, so white folks are not going to consider them apart of their group. Every black person in this country is mixed with something(even the dark ones) The only pure black people come from africa. None of my lighterskinned friends are tying to “act more black” to fit in with the black race…They are black. it is what it is.

  40. Jen

    Cee Cee,

    I don’t know where YOU are from, but we/ALL of my mixed (Light-Skinned) friends look like THIS: http://mixedchicks.net .

    … and this is what it is.

  41. yo

    Just because you say your light skinned black doesn`t mean your not mixed race.People should stop pretending there pure black its totally retarded.

  42. Cee Cee

    @ Jen…
    I was making a refference to this statement…”By acting blacker than the black just look at how some light skinned people act trying to make up for there light skin by acting harder than the hardest black preson doing everthing they can to be down with black people even hateing on white people and some light skinned people for acting to white.” I don’t know where this dude is from, but none of the lightskinned people I know act this way. And let me make one more comment… @ YO…BIRACIAL AND LIGHTSKINNED ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. Halle berry is biracial. “BI” means TWO. Which in turn means two different races. Halle has one white parent and one black parent. This makes her BIRACIAL. Alcia Keys is BIRACIAL. She has one black parent and one white parent. Beyonce Knowles lightskinned but NOT BIRACIAL. SHE HAS TWO BLACK PARENTS. Actress Lauren London is lightskinned but not biracial, she has two black parents.

  43. yo

    Just because you say your light skinned black doesn`t mean your not mixed race.People should stop pretending there pure black its totally retarded.

    The truth is:
    Light skinned blacks are mixed to .why are you trying to act like light skin black and biracial are two different thinks?How do you think light skinned black came from threw race mixing.Iam tried of people acting like there pure black when they`re not.Just because you are light skinned and born to black parent doesn`t take away your mixed race background someone had to be biracial to make you light skinned and with curly wavey hair this why blacks come in all colors its threw race mixing with whites.

  44. yo

    Why do you keep saying both my parents are black like that`s make you pure black or something it
    doesn`t.Someone had to be mixed race in your family to make you light skinned.Look at it like this if a biracial person calls themslf black and merries someone who`s black and there parent tell them to identify as black because society say`s there black and not multiracial then they become light skinned black because of the onedroprule.Even thouth they no there mom is multiracial that is how the word light skinned black come about threw the onedroprule.Now in other countries people who are light skinned black would not be seen as black they would be mixed race.America is the only country where this is happening even in africa there no such thing as a light skin black they are called coloureds

  45. Denise

    It is a stereotype that there are no light skinned pure Africans, look at East Africans. Another stereotype is that Africans walk around butt naked with a spear, so many people of color whether they be biracial or black or Latino, are so closed minded in regards to Africa. So many people allow for the 5:00 news to teach them about Africa.

  46. yo

    its not stereotype its fact.

    Why do you keep saying both my parents are black like that`s make you pure black or something it

    Black people have low moral standard, thats is the reason why thay commit so marry crimes, high HIV/Aids transmissions,etc. Just take a look at the continent African, Haiti etc, what a mess. Low moral standards and low IQ level is this responsible for black problems. They cant take responsibilty for their actions rather blames US for for theie problems.

    Thank goodness that your Mulattoes have decided to disassociate yourself from the Black people. They will only bring you people down if continue to associate with them.

    Mulattoes are beautiful and Black not the best looking people in the world (actually they are bad looking and criminals).

    Blacks are jealous of you people. they which they have your looks.

  48. seb

    Lets’s talk about crime. I hope all of you are aware of the fact that though the so called african-americans are a minority in the US but they form a majority of the prison population. Why? I know you will come up with some stupid answer like – ‘that’s because whitey has been always putting them down’. Hahaha. Look what has become of Zimbabwe and Haiti. Everything was fine there till the white people were in charge but the moment the africans took over both the countries have turned into a shithole. Oh, I forgot to mention south africa. Be honest and tell me, aren’t the blacks in America better off than the blacks in africa?

    Blacks are always talking about the white supremacists. What about the black supremacists? Why don’t you oppose them? You people are hypocrites and have double standards.

  49. Raquel

    I agree with “seb”.

    Black women especially are jealous of the Mulatto women’s looks. They WISH they looked like Mulatto women.

    Case in point: black women are notorious for their (tired looking) weaves. Now what do you suppose these black women are trying to pretend they have? Answer: They are pretending to have LONG beautiful hair WHICH THEY DON’T, so they end up looking fake and ridiculous with their kinky nappy greasy roots and long fake weaves. (btw, other races laugh at their fake hair behind their backs.) Then they have the nerve to talk about being “proud” of their heritage while at the same time trying to appear to have Mulatto or Caucasian hair. “Keepin’ it real?” “Proud?” Yeah. Right.

  50. seb

    raquel
    Are you mullatoe?

    what about Black men.., (African men), they are awful looking. Black people have it really bad. i sometimes feel sorry for them and most really hate them. But they brought it on themselves. I dont know of any other race that dont dislike them.

    i agree with everything that Chance said about blacks.

    i wish they will all leave Europe (and the west) to Africa.

    HIV/AIDs and Voodoo, is the only thing that blacks brought to world, what a useless race.

    Am glad to see that mullatoes are in with US.

  51. seb

    all minority groups except blacks working for a better life and trying to improve their economic situation instead of sitting around blaming all their problems on someone else. If Asians and Latino’s can work and maintain a middle class lifestyle, why the hell can’t blacks? Maybe now we are seeing that it’s not discrimination holding black people back, it’s black people holding themselves back

    I hate black people. Black people are destroying the nation, and the
    world. We’ve all been exposed to them. They’re just different than the rest. It’s like they’re dumber than the rest of us, or something. I wish they would just all go away

  52. Raquel

    Seb,

    Yes, I am Mulatto.

    I do not know any black people who are directly from Africa. I only know African Americans (who are called Black in the U.S. even if they don’t look like typical Africans).

    I DO NOT have the same hatred for Black people that you have, “seb”. I don’t hate any race (except maybe asians, and that’s because I found out about them from one of their own). Whatever.

    I’m complaining/blogging about superficial junk. You, however, have deep-rooted hatred in your heart for Blacks. I suspect you are talking about “real” Africans. Am I right?

    Make no mistake: There are a lot of powerful, rich, accomplished Mulatto and Black Americans in the U.S. who contribute to society. There are black people in the U.S. who have white people as servants, cleaning ladies, maids, limo drivers, and white people who clean Black peoples’ toilets and yards, etc.

    I suspect you are talking about pure Africans…

    In any event, your writing about black people is totally creepy.

  53. Joseph

    Seb,

    I agree, blacks would do well to help themselves and they can if they try and some do. I think DuBois said that the successful should try to help uplift the majority. Since Mulattoes have been part of the black culture they had a part in trying to uplift the black community, but it does not seem to have worked from my perspective. I cannot agree that blacks have brought nothing to this world, cause both they and anglo-saxons have helped to bring us mulattoes into this world. There are mulattoes in the U.S. Europe, and Africa. Some of the carribean islands here in the U.S. region are almost all mulattoes, such as in D.R. and there is a place around Africa that’s basically a mulatto region, so we abound throughout the world. The main problem I have with some blacks is that they think we are black too and that we should stop pretending to not be black.

    @ seb…you said blacks have a low moral standard. so what do whites have?

    You wanna talk morals? This is the same country that was bulit on the slaughtering of the Native Americans (courtesy of the white man). This is the country was built on enslaving a entire race of people that might I add built this country, but still get treated like second class citizens.(hurricane katrina) this country purposely dehumanized black folks, not giving them equal eduaction with white for fear that blacks will surpass them,(and they are still doing that now, check out our public schol system) Justified lynching,justified torturing other human beings because they have no regards for anyone else’s life but their own for example:amadou dialo, abler laweema, shawn bell excuse the spelling of names but thats just to name a few) Justified beating, justified segregation, calling black men less human than others, seperating the black family, changing our names, purposely putting drugs, weapons and liquor stores in the minority communities so that the people can slowly destroy themselves ( you don’t see all that crap in upper class white communities), this is the same country that puts a black man in jail for a longer sentence than a white man who does the equal crime, this is the same country that thought it was okay for white men to beat a 14 year old boy to death for talking to a white woman. There’s a whole lot more of immoral things white folks do ona regular basis, but I can’t talk about it right now because it would fill up this entire forum. You poor poeple have become so brainwashed by this “white is right” slogan that white folks all over the world has bestowed upon everyone. And your fallin for it! White folks biggest accomplishment was tricking the world into believing that everything they do is soooo right and what everyone else does is sooo wrong. Ask yourself why are we the most hated country? It aint because of the black folks. Its because opther countries knows and understand the games a tricks that the “white man” has done and is still doin to eveyone.

  55. Joseph

    What do you mean other countries in the world hate the U.S. because of the white man? You mean other European countries headed by white men, or Canada, or say Cuba, headed by a white man (well his brother now), Japan (who aided the genocidal white man from Germany), Africa whose chiefs sold it’s people and enemies to slavery? I don’t quite understand who’s innocent here?

    Seb is just trying to get a raise out of someone for fun, or for therapy don’t even waste your time.

    Raquel, I know some black women with the best of weaves, and I know a lot of dark skinned older black women, with naturally long hair, especially down south. The reason why a lot of black women have shorter hair nowadays, is because of the damage from chemicals and relaxers. White women wear weaves too, the reason why no one really suspects it, is because their hair texture is the same as the weave.
    Niggers are jealous of mullatos, not Black folks. Being spiritual, and being educated is the key to success in this world, not light skin and “good hair”, because that is only a small superficial thing that the Europeans via slavery and colonialism, have successfully ingrained into the minds of so many people of color.

    If your light your alright, If your brown stick around, If your black step back. How long are we going to allow this song to play in society and in our minds.

    Slavery now slavery forever .

    I agree with Seb.

    Blacks are jealous of Mulattoes.
    They wish they had our looks.

    The majority of black people are very unattractive.

  59. Cee Cee

    @ Joseph

    I’m not trying to prove who is innocent or not. A lot of people are at fault, but this is not the blame game. I’m just simply sheadding some light to the ignorant comments that “seb” made about black people having a lower moral standard than others. And there is a whole lot more that could be said about the real american history. I see he along with a lot of other people don’t have much to say about the many statements I’ve made.

  60. Cee Cee

    hey raquel,
    just to inform u…Jessica Simpson has her own line of hair extentions aka WEAVE.( blacks aren’t the only one’s who’s wearing them) Oh and Beyonce is a black woman and her weaves and lace front wigs are fabulous. (oh because she’s light i bet u thought that was hers) haha NOPE!

  61. seb

    First of all I did like to say shame on those of you that agree to my comments. I was rather hoping for a reaction differ from the ones recieved. If not the part of you that is Black, but at least for common decency and humanity. I can not believe some of the content contained in this page. The owner of this site should know better than to endorse this attitude. Whether or not this is done out of spitefulness/dislike for Blacks, he/she must be aware that the language/expression/writing style used, endorses discrimination, bigotry and prejudice en route for a certain racial group (Blacks).

    Reading some of the comments on this site, from my site as well and other mulatto site I have visited, it seems that we are witnessing the birth of a new form of racism, surely we can not allow this to happen.

    At Cece….

    Am glad that you reacted with such disguise at my comment.., Those comments were made on my site by people claiming to be Whites or Mulattoes. A blogger of mine suggested that I visit this site and write about it. I wished that your response was less anti white lol. I can’t help but ask thou, why do you allow yourself to be affected by these people. Lauryn Hill once said that ‘A part of you dies, when you subject yourself to other people’s opinions’’. Please come and visit my site, is a great site that ideals with relevant issues. I sincerely hope you would.

    At Raquel

    Your opening response to my post, demonstrated a deep down hatred for Blacks, but then you latter response illustrated something entirely different from your primary response. Do you care to explain this sudden digression from your primary response. Am Rather please by this digression by the way but disappointed by the comment about Asians. Please do reply.

    I have met lots of Africans (both in the west and in Africa) I most say that they are the most friendly, hospitable, intelligent and contented people I ever met.

    Seb

    It might be that she (Raquel) has an abhorrence for one thing concerning blacks and appreciates others. I do not know a person who likes someone wholly. Like I love my mom, but I hate her over protectiveness and her cleaning obsession.

    On the one hand Raquel does not like the hypocrisy of the black woman who claims black pride but seeks to look like a Mulatto or a white person, but she is not so ignorant to claim that blacks have had no success or cannot be successful. Perhaps she, like myself, hates people like you who do decieve others in order to elicit a response. Surely each race has it’s racists, like Al Sharpton who I hate, for the blacks. Racism has been among us for the longest and it is not new because Mulattoes do it. There have been Mulatto racists I’m sure from before your and my time. I have myself met Africans and they suck. Point being we do not know all people so your experience is limited just as mine is.

  63. Cee Cee

    @ Seb… OMG I’m glad u did what u did! lmao. But anyway I wouldn’t say that i’m anti white. When I make comments about whites I am not talikng about everyday white folk. there are good white’s and there are bad. I’m talking about the four fathers of this country and other countries. Who used manipulation, greed, deceit and just pure evil ways to take over a particular country and to destroy a race of people. Anyone who has the heart to do something like that is pure evil in my eyes.

  64. Cee Cee

    @ joseph
    “hypocrisy of the black woman who claims black pride but seeks to look like a Mulatto or a white person”

    I can agree with that, because i am soooo over and tired of beyonce with this bleach blonde weave nonsense.( that is not her natural hair or hair color) There have been times where i’ve picked up a magazine and I thought she was shakira. But you also have to understand that we unfortunatly live a society that does not want to embrace black beauty. We live in a society that has brainwashed everyone into the european standards of beauty. This doesn’t just take place in the black community, but also in the hispanic community and in certain parts of india. a woman who is lighter or has a certain texture hair is embraced, but when i woman has more african features, people want to say she’s not beautiful. Its very hard for some women to embrace their unique beauty, when time and time again someone is telling them they have to look white to be considered beautiful. Hence is one of the reasons why beyonce is so sucessful. yes she has alot of talent, but please believe a lot of it has to do with her “white like” looks.

  65. Joseph

    Well, I think there are hypocrites to be found in various races. White people do like black women and so do guys from other races. Whether white men back in the slave days liked black women because they thought they were pretty or simply because they could have all the sex they wanted I do not know. Why certain black dudes are not feeling the females of their race I would venture to say because they have a negative view concerning them. White women, Mulatto women are hot, I know, but usually people like people that are like themselves. There are even black females who have no love for black men so it goes both ways. Black women can look good to me, but personally I’m not too attracted by them. Blacks, Asians, Indians were integrated into the hispanic community which was white at first. Now it includes those other races including mulattoes and mestizos. In Spain there is even a community of people from India where they live. So european standards of beauty in Spanish communities does not suprise me because they are actaully white. For some reason people assume in the Latin American countries there are no white people or few, but that is far from the truth. Even Mulattoes/Mestizos are usually not in the majority in some places. Black people abound there, there are some Indians, and some Asians. The Spanish are usually Spaniard, or mixed with some other anglo-saxon race, like the Irish and with the Celts, Etruscans, Latins (which include the Spaniards, French, Italian, and Romanians), and the Visigoths which were a german people et cetera. Those of Spanish descent can include Mulattoes/Mestizos, but the reason european looks are agreeable is because that’s what Spanish people are. The only people who can come close in those communities are the mixed people there and the blacks are who they are and should not even aspire to such standards. I’m not sure about the Idians, but I believe that long ago they mixed substantially with the europeans who came there back in the day and the caste system then became a crooked thing. That’s why some of them look white (and very sexy I might add).

  66. seb

    At joseph…,

    None of my comment were directed at you. i was rather hoping to hear from Raquel.

  67. Cee Cee

    “Blacks, Asians, Indians were integrated into the hispanic community which was white at first.”

    Joseph are u talking about spanards or hispanics? Because they are two different things. When we talk about hispanics we are speaking of the latino’s from the caribbean. They all have some sort of european descent and some do look european, but most have more of a mulatto look because they are mixed with black, white and indian (taino). This is of course due to the slave trade. The only reason why they speak spanish is because the spanards colonized in those specific countries. Just like how the dutch and british ran countires like jamaica and trinidad (just to name a few) and portugal ran most of brazil, hence is why they speak portugese. Now what really kills me is how u have some of these black hispanics walking around here thinking they are white. that is hilarious and they get mad when u tell them, they’re more black than white.

  68. Joseph

    hehe, well you’re either a black American or black Hispanic if you’re black. As far as I know, hispanics actually include anyone of Spanish decent and I also believe it was first used for Persians or somesuch peoples. Yea, alot of latin Americans are mulatto looking because they are just that. Actually Creoles are of Spanish, French, African, and/or Indian descent, not necessarily all in one as far as I know. I’m not sure how many people of Spanish descent identify as creole or mulatto, but you have them for both. I personally identify with mulatto. I believe Beyonce identifies as a Creole, but it seems to have been fairly recent for her to do such a thing. Her mom is apparently Creole.

    I believe the Tainos were in Puerto Rico only. I may be wrong. But I do remember from Puerto Rican studies that they migrated from South America there. They had some interesting religious beliefs too. I’ll have to look it up in my book. As a matter of fact, if you happen to be interested in Puerto Rican history the book I found to be easily readable and informative is called “The Puerto Ricans A Documentary History” edited by Kal Wagenheim and Olga Jimenez (accent mark on the first e) de Wagenheim.

    Yo, the word is “mention” not “menchine”. Did you at least receive a GED?

  71. Melody

    seb, I’m glad you did your little experiment, but you don’t have to convince blacks how racist mulattos are. It’s great you guys are splintering off and I hope you don’t turn out like the coloured in S. Africa. I’ve also noticed a rise in mulatto men who behave like Leo Felton. Here’s an excerpt from a very interesting study.

    http://www.iss.co.za/Pubs/CrimeQ/No.7/Leggett2.htm

    Crime in the coloured community
    Coloured people are also over-represented in the nation’s prisons according to the Department of Correctional Services (Figure 2). Coloured people represent only 9% of the national population, but they make up 18% of the national prison population. Coloured people are also nearly twice as likely to be imprisoned than African blacks.

    Why young coloured people are not continuing their education at the rate of young blacks is a subject in need of further research. But those who opt out of tertiary study further contribute to the pool of urban, idle, and marginalised youth.

  72. Melody

    Melody, you stupid, stupid person.

    English is obviously “Yo’s” second language. “Yo” speaks at least two languages.

    Do you, Melody, speak more than one language?

  73. This website has great hair products to work with many hair types. If you have loose curls, use the Mixed Chicks leave-in conditioner alone. If you have coarse curls, use Mixed Chicks deep (www.mixedchicks.net)

    My response: Beyonce claims to be creole, and also wrote a song called creole. She is of creole descent just like she is of black American descent.

  76. LaKair

    denise is right darker skinned blacks have long hair too. i’m dark skinned and i had long coarse black hair b 4 i cut it last year. my mom is brown skinned and has long wavy brown hair and we live in that south so i tell black women all the time you can have long shiny beautiful hair if you learn to take care of it. Relaxers definitely damage hair b/c my hair was short when i used to get them! and hair grease isn’t good either it just make our hair sticky and stank. try using natural products and deep conditioners. or organic products in ur black hair and stop the relaxers!

  77. Nunya

    Somebody upset the “darkies”!

    There was nothing wrong with the article and the author was not being “racist”, “colorist”, or “obsessed”. In fact, he was absolutely correct about how black people’s hair got “nappy”. It was because many of the plantation mulatto, quadroon, octoroons married dark-skinned, nappy headed blacks. My great-great grandmother was one of them. She married a dark-skinned negro with nappy hair and the rest is history. So, don’t get mad dark skinned blacks.

    It’s just the truth!

  78. If there are people of African descent in a non African population, and you find people with a hair texture that boarders both African and the rest of the population, wouldn’t it make sense to say that they are a result of admixture between both groups. Loose curls in non African people only represents a mixture of straight hair like some Europeans, and tight curled hair that you would find in most people of West African origin. Whether it be from ancient or modern.

  79. There are only to phenotypes of people, African and European. Everybody else is the result of amalgamation between the two.
    Even the yellow skinned asians. That’s where yellow skin complexion comes from in the first place.
