In light of the Halle Berry thinking that her daughter is black thread. I thought I’d make this one just to talk about the different things that we’ve had to deal with because of our race.
So just to put a few things out there, I’ll start.
Why is it that Caucasians and African American refer to each other by color (which is wrong because we aren’t black or white anway) rather than by race? I wasn’t aware of this until my friend pointed it out to me a few months ago. It seems so normal to say it that way, but it really should change and we are the only races that do that.
One guy that I work with mentioned that we shouldn’t be called African American because a lot of us were born and raised here. We should just be called Americans. If the word Americans is pure, then why is the the prefix Native for Native Americans exist? The purpose of us studying history is so that we don’t repeat the same mistakes, yet we aren’t correcting the mistakes that we’ve found. The Indians here aren’t Indians, so why hasn’t someone corrected that already?
Question to you interracial folks. Can you choose what race you want when doing applications? I know there is an “other” choice, but what happens if you pick one other the other? Does white get you the job or black not get you the job and is the person surprised when you show up and they can see that your interracial? Have you ever had to explain choosing other and what was that like?
I’ll come back to this later, but for now I’ll just say this. I don’t care for watermelon or any melon for that matter, I hate purple and red drank and I fucking love chicken.
