those who are mixed are mixed...they ARENT white or black.
many black people WANT to "consider" them black... many will demand it to the point of crying racism if you dont. its fake self serving veneer of being "inclusive", while in reality its a means of redefining what it means to be black. mixed folk arent "like" black people.... black people themselves become "like" mixed people.
this kind of severe identity issue among many black people is ducked and dodged by an innapropriate anaology made to the "one drop rule".... that rule was meant to address mixed folk that emphatically LOOKED white, and sought to still treat them legally as if they were black.
the issues in the black community has many black people actually doing the inverse of the one drop rule... demanding anyone that looks black or mixed, emphatically be seen as "black"
white people still dont consider anyone mixed as being white... again, they simply arent. and there isnt the same kind of identity issue where they would WANT the kind of redefinition that black people with issues do.
to the racist rage mailer... white people wouldnt even consider an interracial dater as being like themselves culturally nor a part of their community. they are relegated as an "other", there is no "us" and they may as well be another race... as their kids are.
its NOT white peoples fault, that a cruel parent who clings to the idea that they are still white, tells a mixed kid nonsense about how only a "racist" thinks it matters, that they are "both", that they are part white.... and then wonders why no white people actually thinks they are "like them"
they arent. its not hate, its not racism. its simple reality. You cant force a veneer of victimization of mixed people... that society at large has to take responsibility for...because their parents who mixed had issues.
that this is something so pervasive and destructive to the black community... and there are many black people with identity issues... isnt some kind of "non-racist virtue". Black communities have severe issues no matter how much its ignored.
mixed folk are going to effectively SUPPLANT actual black communities with there own. give it few more generations, when mixed numbers come into their own, and there is no longer any real need for that social safty net of belonging to a larger group... who's going to have to play the roll of 'racist' when mixed folk finally start forming a real identity and start saying they are NOT black... because they arent. black people are the only ones that will get upset at that.
