    I grew up with an identity crisis, I never knew which side to identify with. My mother raised me like a traditional Filipino parent but I was always rebellious. She was born and raised in the Philippines, my father grew up in New Orleans. Two cultures that clashed and both couldn't agree on how to raise me. Now I'm left with all these emotional problems and resentment about who I am. Are there any biracial members on the board that struggle with these issues?

    I grew up with an identity crisis, too. My father was male and my mother was female. Now I don't know which one to act like.

    Just be yourself. I know black people can be pretty fucked up towards mixed people sometimes. I'm sure filipinos can too.

    Try to embrace both !
    You are not he first mixed race person on earth!..

    You are blaming your cultural mixture and upbringing but you sir...Are no walks in the park!

    ...Personally I know your “Type” Very smart but not very wise!
    The issue most Rjers have with you is that you are impulsive and not exactly a thinker!

    ..I believe your brain spawns way more information than you can process (just like most young adults)
    Combine that with your impulsiveness and your lack of ability to think makes you socially awkward!

    ..You can solve this (if you care) by learning to calm your head, being quiet and listening..
    If you have a calm head...You can think... if you can think you’ll make better decisions socially!

    ..Personally I don’t like when you get picked on! I had a falling out with another member because he went too far picking on you... But you sir!! You don’t make it easy!
    I think Real Jock is extremely important to you...why not make the best of it!
    Not every neuron tick in your brain has to be “Why why” issue..And even if so if you are reaching out for help do it diplomatically! You don’t have to piss people off just to find your way!

    ..With that said...i have basically said to you what people say behind your back..

    ..I know how the mind of a genius works...And I know how it doesn’t!
    So being Boland the impulsive... You will probably steam when you read this.. but you’ll appreciate this advice later.. I promise!

    Well many saw that I was a 'different' mixed person and they guessed that was because my father was italian-american but If you call me black it doesn't matter to me because IT IS WHAT THE FUCK IT IS, just make sure your parents know thaticon_cool.gif
