Yea you black/African. We have the Dominant gene Remember...
That argumentis totally new. The argument about whether someone is black enough, I dont know where it came from but this was not an issue 20 years ago. back then yo tail was black even when your skin was white but you could tell there was rythm in that person. So yea dont even stress it.

I'm about 70-80% African-American (or would that just be African??) The other bit is French, Cuban, Native American, and possibly English/Irish. It really shows because I have a very European-type nose and my hair is long probably due to the Native American thing. My skin is also a brown-dark orange type of tone. So I get recieve a lot of comments about my ehtnicity.

Most of the comments are positive, but there are some people who tend to tell me that I'm not really a black woman just because I'm part this and that. It really bothers me. I'd like to be seen as one. It might just be me who's taking it to heart when I shouldn't be, but it seems like you have to be 100% black to really be considered black.

I don't know how to get over this -_-" I know it must sound stupid. I even wrote a poem about it to try and feel better, and that only helped for about 5 minutes. :10500:
Well let me see if I can help you figure this out. Since you have a so called European-type nose from your French or Irish side maybe the French or Irish will accept you. Nope!!! What about the Anglo (English). Nope they wont either!!! Okay let us move on. You mentioned having long hair from your Native American thing. Maybe they will accept you. Nope!!! Remember the Cherokees organizing to kick black folks who claimed Native American status off of the reservation. Well I think we have pretty much narrowed it down. If there is still any confusion of your so called ethnicity don't worry because if you or other Black folks who are giving you problems ever run into the gentlemen below they will be glad to clarify for both of you. Oh I forgot!! If you run into them make sure your mother is present since she "don't generally like" black folks these gentlemen will give her a real lesson of what "don't like" is and at the same time wake her up.

im south African and you are black okay. anyway biracials are not black and there are PURE Africans with long hair or sharp noses. many of the dogon people of mali have sharp noses and are 100% African and are not mixed at all.

You don't have to be 100% black to be viewed as black by anyone accept African Americans I bet. I can promise white America see's you as black if you are as you described.

Ya know I never really thought much about the problems some IR people have fitting in. Not black enough and not white enough seems to be a bad place to be. I would think it would boil down to how you identify yourself. It's easy for me to say pick a side and keep it movin but I know that is not reality. I hope you can find your inner identify so you can cope with your outer identity. I do think it starts with you first.

True, none of those other groups accept these hybrids. I suspect her mother that "don't generally like" Black folks to be a Spic or Caucasian. Cubans can belong to different groups.
