    in a previous post because of your juvenile name calling and over identification with Whiteness. Biracial people can be whatever they want. They can call themselves purple striped green melba toast people. Don't care.

    I am interested in how race works in this society. How some choose to walk away from blackness and their other raced identities. And what are the mental, social, and psychological motivations behind such a choice. Tragic mulattoes--just like self-hating black people--are real.

    CNN chose to make a whole show profiling the former. That is fascinating to me.

      words....

      I don't know how my calling you a name makes a person white nor am I sure what "over identification" with whiteness is.  

      Not only that but how can you presume to be an authority on what over the level to which a bi-racial person can identify with anything without knowing their experiences.  

      Don't let your prejudice get the best of you.

      Who ya gonna shoot wit dat homie, you'd rather blast an original instead of a phony, true macaroni, you don't even know me, and why does your gun say n****z only?

      •  i like this, more evidence, i will explain (0+ / 0-)

        yes, there are people, apparently such as yourself based on your comments who are desperate to be white and who denigrate black people and blackness. without taking too much more time on this issue, to say that someone "overly identifies with Whiteness" is to suggest that they are invested in either maintaining white privilege or in supporting its structures to their own gain.

        Non-whites do this too: Clarence Thomas would be a classic example, as would someone like Michelle Malkin. In other words they are "sell-outs" or "race traitors."

        •  That doesn't really explain it (0+ / 0-)

          which of my comments would show that I am desperate to be white?

          Which of my comments were denigrating black people?

          Since you are saying you have evidence and I clearly have no way of knowing which comments were doing that why don't you help me out.

          Who ya gonna shoot wit dat homie, you'd rather blast an original instead of a phony, true macaroni, you don't even know me, and why does your gun say n****z only?
