Latinos have European ancestry in them why don't you look up your research before commenting. A lot of people are mix races due to slavery if you had a black parent you are black and that is how people of African ancestry come in different shades just because one person has a lot of African ancestry and looks light doesn't mean that they dont have a relative they are connected to through blood has European ancestry. Hispanic is a made up race it doesn't come from one group of people I am just tired of people think that I am a liar when I say that I have European ancestry based on my appearance. African features are dominated over European.
The more black you add the this European a person has in there dna. People do take back in the family.
I'm more European than them.
Do you think it is a contest?
I'm just saying I am more European than they are.
And I am just saying do you think it is a contest?Are you more European than Alexis Belon? Mariah Carey? Blake Griffin?I posted you to show you that skin color and genetic common ground have little to do with each other. All of these folks have one "Black" parent and one "White" one. They could pass as being "White" only. . . but they identify as being "Black". . . or as "Black" and "White".No one knows their genetic make up until they take a test. Mariah may be 60% African. . . we have no idea. Because the passing of genetic traits is not an exact science. There are recessive traits your parents carry from their parents and so on. Genes for eye color, thickness of lips, curly hair, I mean they taught all this stuff in high school right?www.yourgenome.org/.../what-are-dominant-and-recessive-alleles
Right, DNA varies plus it doesn't matter
tbh for the picture she doesn't look that white, she has white features but I would say she looks Mexican or Hispanic. There's no contest when it comes to stuff like this at this point nobody is completely from one place in the world, it's nothing new
@nerdybutlazy Then why are you talking about how "European" you are? I mean, even your premise was off. You had to add "White"? What does that even mean? I know I have European heritage. I don't know how much. That has nothing to do with racism. Racism deems me as not being "White". That's the only judgement it makes. The resulting boxes we are thrown into are just a matter of which set of racist stereotypes, racists will associate with us.Alexis Belon's experience has never been one of being mistaken for a Mexican. She has been mistaken for being "White" and "White" only.In our society, we have racism and we have cultural/group identity. I, along with a bunch of other people choose a culture called African-American/"Black". It is mere coincidence that racists look at me and see a "Black" person. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SiNitxGpDik
@nerdybutlazy you dont even know what a Mexican look like. I do look black but not mexican.
I am so sorry. I got you two mixed up. I certainly do not have an opinion on what you look like. You own your experience. I am not certain what this other person is trying to say.
Yeah you can't look at someone and tell what they are and yeah i was kind of being rude to them but why does everyone assume that a Hispanic person is a mexican.
I just be tired of people giving me a hard time when I tell them that I am half white.
I didn't realize you had to actually clarify that to people. I mean is it because your being called black? People usually use the most defining trait to describe a person so that might be why they would call you black as well as the fact that I think for what ever reason, calling some one mulato or what have you is considered offensive which puts people in an awkward position when trying to describe another person. Otherwise it just seems odd to me that this would need to be clarified.
Never change I dont see what the big deal is people just make it out to be a big deal due to slavery and segregation. Get into the times people. People just make a difference out of people because they are racist.

Well aren't you for judging someone based on how they look without asking them first.
No. I'm not. That's what you've done and now you're trying to deflect attention away from you because you can't justify your behavior.
Yes you are you can clearly see that I am black and white and still want to deny the fact. White people really do think that they are superior to others. That is why you got so offended by what I posted.
If white people weren't racist they wouldn't be concern on how I am white.
You are very triggered, very angry, and taking it out on whoever is close by. It doesn't matter what color you are; that is very unattractive behavior.
I'm just staring the truth from experience after experience.
Your truth is called "racism," and you are the racist. If you are blind to that fact, there is nothing further to discuss. You seem to be consumed with hate. Do you really expect everyone to agree with you and ask what they can do to make you feel better. Your attitude causes divisiveness and this is why racial relations have deteriorated. You simply don't get people to accept you by trying to bully them with your hate.Good bye!
I didn't have any success in my dating life I didn't know what the problem is.
Keep your head up, they say that love has been on decline but the most important direction to point that energy is inside; you keep striking at your goals and you'll find what you need along the wayI mean how many options are out there with any sort of security in your dating pool? Right? But I bet there's a great-natured, hard working, woman-loving Guatemalan that don't care about race somewhere for you but would you be dating at 4'10"? See, we all weigh that 2/3 option when we're lonely but we could always just refocus that energy on ourselves and buy ourselves some time until that sensation creeps back up? I don't know spitballing at this point.
I huge difference because the cultures are different and I want to fit in my right lane of people. I'm not going to celebrate the same traditions as an Indian or mexican like you would a black person.
Who cares what people think anyway. even black people in America are totally different than the ones in Africa. they have 0 common traditional or culture yet they come from the same place
I do because you dont realize how narrow minded and racist American American people are. Dont you know that nobody in America is a pure breed. Just because you dont care doesn't mean the problem with racism won't stop.
Yeah but you see that I have European in me.
Well look at my dna results and then look at me and tell me what you see?
But you can see how light I am to an average black person.
I dont understand why people are narrow minded and think that I am something else. How do people see middle eastern?
I don't know, but when you are a mix you get confused with a number of different races.
Yeah but you still have to look white to be white whenever people ask me what I am mix with they dont like white as an answer. They think something else.
Not much can be done about that. People will think what they want to think. Best to ignore the ignorant and bigoted ones.
I still have white in me.
I'm saying you idiots still be thinking that I am middle eastern or Indian.
When did I think that you are mid eastern or indian?You are clearly black.
Because that is what people think.
Why do you even care?
Because what if they thought I was going to bomb them when I was not even middle eastern.
wow thats racist.by the way mid eastern is not a race. There is different people living here. Its just a geographic term.
So y'all not when you see me with a white relative you think that I am adopted.
Because people dont know what a mix person with black and white look like.
oh okay, got it
People who dont think that a mix person is mix with white.
Where have you been?
my own little world, I guess
No nobody come straight from Africa looking like that. White people program people to think racist like they do.
Well I just learned something new today, thanks
Can you see?
I’m sorry but you just look Indian to me 🤷♂️
I dont understand why tell me how you see that
You people act like that black and white dont mix. Because you all are racist.
Who is you people? You act like your providing new information when most people should have known this a long time ago.
Well blacks and whites still dont want to get along and white people still think that they are superior to blacks. do you people need me to show you a picture of an African person so you can see what a real black person looks like? It is pretty bad that part of your own people dont want you.
As I said everyone already knows what mixed people and full blooded Africans look like. And why would someone want someone who's very first response is "because you all are racist"
Because it is true you people would think that I am anything but white. You have to look white to claim white other than that people will give you a funny look if you told people that you were white. Just always been like that. I didn't show to be half white I'm just tired of being mistreated by white people because I dont look like y'all.
