Stop the Race mixing group on Facebook
So this is me.
I am mixed...and I couldn't resist joining a Facebook group which was rallying the cause to stop the race mixing. I in all my redness joined the discussion, proudly declaring myself as a mixed race person.
There is a particularly nasty one, all f-words and n-words that questions the colour of my "black" skin. I am on the fair side...and have been refered to as a Trini"white" sometimes....which is just as hilarious to me.
I am niether black, nor white. I am a mixture of the two. I cannot see why I should refere to one side as if the other wasn't there. No one asks a Chinese/Indian mixed person to identify with one over the other? Why should I be labeled as one over the other?
I am still having fun on this group..... if you are interested in joining, look for it on my profile.....LOL
