    I know an awful lot of (and am related to a few) blond and blue-eyed "native americans." In some cases, they are maintaining enough of a link to get tribal benefits.

    But that's probably irrelevant to your point.

    dekiruman saidI've met people who were black or asian for a couple of months, then magically changed into mixed race people


    You met them and they specificaly told you in person their ethnicity, only to later explicitly confirm it is in fact mixed? Or this is something you've noticed on their profile info and the reason behind this you've assumedicon_question.gif

    How do you know if they are ''clearly not'', pray tell?

    If they haven't specifically told you that there were one race but you assumed it based on pics, and then if they were to later change their profile from black/asian/white etc to mixed race, it might be to avoid continuing to over-simplifiy their ancestry, assuming they really do have a mixed background.

    A lot of technically mixed race people tend to just lazily lump themselves under one racial catergory (usually the predominant one if they have one) for questionnaires or profile info for the sake of simplicity and convenience as stating 'mixed' can appear too generic, and stating 'other' is even more obscure. That shouldn't suggest that they aren't in actual fact 'mixed'.

    I guess I see your point. However, what does a clearly mixed person look like? Especially when mixed with black?

    If someone's racist, or only associates with a certain race...even if you're mixed, it probably won't matter to them.

    Not possible to be any other way since there is no such thing a pure race.

    Im a 1/4 Native American.
    Ojibwa to be exact.
    My father is half Native American and half Irish and my mom is all Irish.
    What constitutes being mixed race?
    Does one have to have clear indications of their race to actually be of that race?
    I identify as white because unless someone sees my father they don't believe me.

    I understand the point that you're trying to make man. However, the "race" concept is as fluid as human sexuality and has a lot to do with how people identify. For some this may vary from one situation to the next and that doesn't necessarily indicate an identity crisis. How people "look" is not the scientfic way to determine "race" anyway and there really is no "pure" race - certainly not in the Americas at this point in time.

    I am mixed and I don't say it, because no one ends up believing me and I just look like a crazy weeaboo.

    I lied about my race, once, to save my life. A Canadian first nations guy pulled a knife out and pointed it at my neck. At the time I only knew that I didn't know who my real parents were. I told him I was part native. It was late at night. He took me to his cabin. Not a reserve by official standards, but it was a native ghetto on the edge of town. Meeting his family and seeing how they lived was one of the most transfomrative moments of my life.

    Due to extensive racial mixing in my family, I display a largely Caucasian phenotype -- in head shape, lips, nose shape, hairline, etc -- but have medium dark skin and coarse hair.

    Even though I'm clearly mixed, people refer to me as black, and that is also how I identify.

    People who claim to be mixed but aren't are a lot of times dealing with issues of self-hate, which let's face it is easy in a Eurocentric world.

    My mother is half Irish and half African, and my dad is 1/4 English and 3/4's African. This makes me 5/8's African and 3/8's white, I actually went from calling myself mixed to just black, because all that straight up African overpowers the British Isles in my appearance apart from the pointy nose, sharp jawline, and lighter skin tone. But if you saw me you would assume I was black, so as to avoid judgement from people like yourself I just refer to myself as black. icon_biggrin.gif

    What does it matter? I'm mixed Asian and, depending on the day, season, and absence or presence of facial hair, I could pass for full Asian (with hazel eyes), Latino, Brazilian (in the summer), unidentifiable mixed, etc., etc., etc. Should we even care how people define or categorize their ethnicities?

    I think most people don't have ulterior motives when they say they're one race at first and then say they're mixed a second time. Sometimes it just boils down to convenience. When people ask what I am, I tell them I'm Half American and Half Filipino. The reality is I'm 1/4 Polish, 1/4 French, 1/4 Spanish and 1/4 Filipino, but why go through all the trouble of explaining all that unless someone asks. Most people think I'm hispanic so I do end up having to elaborate (which gets a little tedious sometimes), but it's really not a big deal to me so I tend to simplify it to avoid that conversation. In the case of others, they may be 3/4 of something and 1/4 of another and want to just side with the more predominant ethnicity in their blood also for the sake of simplicity.

    either spelling is acceptable.

    and fyi 'hapa' is Hawaiian-derived not asian-derived. i should know. born and raised there.
