    I see tons of clearly-black or asian guys claiming to be "mixed race". Presumably this is the same reason others put "29" or "39" under age, to avoid elimination in searches. I actually don't mind the ones who admit to trying to cheat the system, but feel sorry for the few who insist on their 1/8th British heritage, or some other BS lol. Will you date them?

    Many black americans are in fact of tri-racial (native, european and African) origins. The state I live in, has the fourth largest native american population in the country but a large tribe known as the Lumbee are not completely recognized as Native Americans despite maintaining their tradition and identifying as such. They are in fact a tri-racial tribe. I often mistake them for being Latin American until I hear a deep country drawl when they speak.

    I dated a guy once and had no idea he was black when I first met him until he referred to himself as such. I thought he was mixed-race and in fact he is again tri-racial. He looked like he could have been related to my Venezuelan friend. The latter's father identified as black but his white Spanish mother just simply raised her kids as Venezuelans and he would never say his is black though he has told me his father is.

    So if someone with brown skin says he is mixed race, he probably is. And if you get annoyed that they aren't screaming out "warning my skin is dark enough to pass for African", then maybe you have a problem.

    And why do you assume these "clearly" black or Asian guys are not mixed race? How can you tell?
    Or are you just one of those guys that thinks every dark-skinned black person is full black?

    Why is everyone talking about the distinctions between mixed races? Isn't this a troll of the "If a man lied about his age would you still date him thread"?

    how do you know that without knowing the person personally?
    'mixed race' doesn't mean the person will not look black or asian.

    Who the hell are you to judge what is "clearly black or asian"? Based on how they look? Isn't that a little judgmental? You're going to assume that they are lying based on what race YOU think they are? The one with the issues in this story and the one I think no one should date is you.

    I find it hilarious that some Black men which are OBVIOUSLY Black insist on disclosing their racial composite. They'll go on by bragging " IM 1/4 AMERICAN INDIAN 1/4 GERMAN 1/4 JAPANESE 1/4 LATINO." To which my response is usually. Yeah.. Im just Black..

    I know plenty of people who are only a 1/4th black or less but nevertheless look as if their heritage was mostly or entirely black.

    I also know a lot of people who are half Asian/half White. Some of them look predominately Asian, others look predominately white and others look like an even blend of the two.

    There are also people who get mistaken for being an ethnicity/race that they aren't. For example, my heritage is half Greek/half German but I have a relatively dark skin tone and so I often get mistaken for Hispanic, Arab, Iranian, etc. Some people even ask me if I'm part Black (often due to my hair).

    The moral of the story is, you can't always tell what someone is just by looking at them. You actually have to *gasp* ask them if you're curious.

    i guess those ' obviously black ' people are lying too right ?

    Both my parents are mulattoes, one of them even has straight hair and they are both golden brown skin toned, i did not get those features, so now i should just one drop myself just because i dont look passe blanc ? Thats stupid.

    it seems that the one drop rule issue is mainly a problem with North american who are ignorant, outside of north america this problem dosent really happen much

    Heyyy
    I'm actually quite fiercely proud to be an Aries... (which I think is actually typical behavior of an Aries)

    Oh, highforthis, you are still around and finding new ways to offend people, eh? Are somebody paying you to be a troll and give you the right to judge people on who they want to be?

    Don't be silly. People can be mixed race and still get past your meticulous racial examination.

    Can't believe people think I'm being racist... I'm like the only white guy I know who will date blacks and asians. My thoughts are regarding the insecurity of many guys who feel the need to emphasize that "little bit of white" in them, as a "step up" from the "regular" minorities. No one wants to admit it, but that's why many do this

    It's cute to see all you guys parsing the genetic and psycho-social meaning of Race, when clearly on a hookup site it's referring to what you look like.

    If I put "mixed" on my profile, you'd all roll your eyes.
