    Hotep! I just got off the phone with my lady friend and we were stumped with a question. The question is are you what your mother or father is RACIALLY? How do you decide what your race truly is if you are bi-racial? Do you come down through your mother genes or your father genes or both racially? Some people say you are what your mother is. Some people say that if you have one drop of "negroid" blood in you then that's what you are. But how can this be if you are mixed? What is your outlook and overstanding?



    thanks

    Greeting RA_Enosh!:wave:

    I'm of the opinion that a child is racially that of its mother. I say this because in most cases, the mother being the first teacher, often teaches the child of the culture she's from.

    Although there are some exceptions. For instance, when a mother subscribes to an outside culture. She may pass on some traditional aspect from her original culture, but mostly she will teach her child according the culture she's presently attached to.

    I believe you are what your Father is when it comes to race, but that your close siblings come from your mom, regardless of who their daddy might be.

    Reason being because since days of old our inheritances came through our Father while our blood sibling relationships was through our Mother since the womb be the same. Thus, we inherit what our daddy is, while we relate the most to who our mom produces.

    However, all are brothers and sisters, regardless of race, background, and whatever else. So, of course, even who your daddy produces is still your sibling.

    I'm going to leave you be on this because you getting ready to do it to yourself on this one...from the very first moment you mentioned "days of old". You stated "what you believe" in the first paragraph...and be that as it is, I'm simply here to inform you that what you believe is not what the FACTS OF HISTORY REVEAL as being TRUE. You have a choice in this. You can continue to pursue what you believe to be true and we can leave it like that...or you can argue your belief and open a whole can of worms that you may not want to be eating at this time. That is your choice.

    If you are leaving me be, then why reply to my post to start? The first post asked what our outlook is and our overstanding, so what I gave was what I know. If you don't agree, you are not obligated to reply.

    I edited my reply to allow you the choice...so have you made it? Think about it well before you answer because everyone does not necessarily want what they ask for.

    Who was arguing to start? As I said, I stated what I know, as we are all free to in these forums. You replied to me because you disagree, and now you hit me with some kind of ultimatum when the first post asked our outlook?

    You deal in that, I won't.

    I should have stated, this, I think, is what people should focus on most. :) That way, unnecessary divisions are never made when coming together with a common mind for love, truth, humility, understanding, wisdom, friendship, and family.
