It's not every day that a mulatto can claim both parents.. usually he ir she is only allowed to claim one
If other mixed race can claim both ethnicities why can't the mulatto do the same?
Yeah, that first post, I don't get or understand. Perhaps you should just talk about how things work in your country. Trevor Noah talked a bit about his experience in South Africa and how it was literally his birth was literally against the law.That is one messed up society, right there.
As for your second post, again explain what the "law" is in South Africa. You should be old enough to remember what/how mixed children were perceived.
Well in SA we struggling with reversed racism mulatto are an ethnic group on their own White is a race on its own black and Indians are an ethnicitissue on their own. Each group in Sa got a tribal mindset mulatto has become a community in Sa (*Google mulatto)
Race mixing in apartheid between whites and blacks were illegal. each racecgroypgi segregated... mulatto developed into a communityandcurrnly make up at 8,9%butthisgroupdevelopedfron theological era and share colonial Dutch cultures
My auto correct is creating typos I apologize
Having severe trouble with auto correct my entire post became one terrible typo
I don't think every supposed "Mulatto" in South Africa identifies as you claim they do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEsWOZjjVt8
You see its really their fault they didn't choose that "colored" term... it was imposed upon them by the colonial government.. the new generation are identifying more with their origin rather than theethnicity that was forcibly imposed on them... Trevor Noah was not raised in a mulatto community he didn't experience what the colonial mulatto experienced. HE didn't grow up with the mulatto he was raced in a different community from his mulatto countrymen
Mulatto these days are trying to find their own identity Trevor Noah knows nothing about his own people becausehe wasn't raised among them same as Obama oBama can't talk about the black experience because he wasn't raised in the hood. He was raised with his white mother while his father was in Kenya he can't say he knows tell hood when he grew up living a differentlifestyle
Mulatos didn't chose to be a community.Over hundreds of years of segregation the developed onto a community. But they didn't have a choice the government at the time told the mulatto that they were superior to Africans and Indians 😂because theu were hallf white. the mulstto was the favired race and hence the modern crisis
Since you have not been forthcoming about your point here. I went and did my own research. So now I understand you better. I guess you are here as an advocate for the coloreds "race" in South Africa. I am sorry. But I live in America. We found out the concept of race was garbage decades ago. We now know that human beings divided up into different cultural groups. Genetics don't figure in that equation. That's why your assessment of Barack Obama is nonsensical. We accept him. And he accepts us. Nothing else matters. Especially when it comes to you talk about the "hood". I was never raised in a "hood". But I am African-American.If you do not accept Trevor Noah was being a member of your group. That's on you. I don't think African-American Culture will have an issue accepting him. We are very flexible when it comes to cultural acceptance. Some cultures are restrictive, others are not. I don't understand why people get angry are others because of who they accept as their own. You have your group. I have mine. Good luck.
They didn't choose to be a community? I don't see why that matters. You speak as if they are their own community and their own culture. If you guys want acceptance into "Whiteness", that could be possible. The Italians in America were not considered to be "White" for a long time. Eventually, they were permitted to be members of "White" American Culture. The same goes for the Irish.Things evolve. Be patient.
Okay I am Not coloured but live in South Africa to know enought about them. I am AFRIKAANS (OR BOER (*GOOGLE IT)Even though I am not coloured a lot of my friends are coloured that is why we afrikaaners can talk about them because we colonised them min essence we created them
Just to clarify things I am not coloured (I'm colonial European ) I was only talking on behaline of them because Coloured and whites have a close relationship in South Africa. With that out of the way speaking on behalf of another race does not make the me the same race as that race I am speaking on their behalf I'm not that race
If you are Boer, why are you so concerned about "coloreds"? i guess I don't get it. If they are a different grouping, why do you feel you can speak for them. And if you think you can speak for them, why don't you just them as being one of your own?
Yeah, I don't get that. I tend to distrust folks who are speaking on behalf of another group. Why don't you go find a member of that group or reference articles where they speak on their own behalf?
