Last time, I checked. Most MAJORITY BLOODED black girls, don't have light skin or loose curly hair. Same for black men. What's wrong with just calling yourself mixed? I don't get it.

Because mixed isn't a race.
we identify as whatever we choose. Not really your place to judge what isn't your own body.
You sound like one of those people who contribute to the lightskin vs. darkskin garbage.
wake up minors. You're the kids who will be leading this country in the future. Stop judging people by their definition of themselves and their skintone and focus on whats important, otherwise this country wil only continue to go further downward. (US). unless you don't live in the US, same thing either way.2

Not all black people have dark skin or kinky hair... That's why I don't like to use the word black or white to describe people because skin colour does not determine what your facial shape looks like, what your hair texture is like, what type of body you have.
If you go to Africa then you'll notice a huge amount of diversity, just google Tigrinya people to the Yoruba people and tell me if they look the same since they are both apparently "black". I would think not. They are different culturally as they are appearance wise.
And to be fair, majority of black people in America are mixed with all kinds of ethnicities so in reality they are just mixed themselves, and calling out on biracials for calling themselves black is just kind of strange and funny in itself. And as sad as it is most of African Americans don't really have an identity to choose from but black, African American or creole to identify themselves with unless they've done some DNA test to determine what they really are (and those who do will often notice they are mixed with other ethnicities and not just those from Africa). But anyhow, it's an extremely complicated issue when it comes to people in America. So I guess you can pick and choose what you identify with the most and call yourself that if you like. And don't bash on others for identifying or feeling like they are a "black" person simply because they look mixed, heck you're probably as mixed as they are.3
