Why is it when "black" people excell in something they tend to be actually mix raced Watch

    But the 80s were a dreadful decade for music, and Michael Jackson was part of that.
    Ooooooh that was below the belt.

    What could possibly be a better song than "The Final Countdown" or "99 Red Balloons"?

    Booooo.

    i bet you'd hate a asian or black man
    and loved a blue eyed boy
    my life is ****
    i am inferior
    because of a feature i didn't choose
    people won't find me as attractive
    It's funny how you want white people to find you attractive even though you think they are racist pigs.

    They won't because you're a ***** rather then your skin/eye/who gives a **** colour.

    OP, i think a better question would be

    Why do a lot of mixed race people refer to themselves as black rather than white?

    I will leave you lot to ponder that for a moment

    No, no you cant. HAHA
    awww?
    is it because he is being watered down
    aww you don't want your precious white skin to be tainted by a black person?
    aww, your so ashamed to call him white
    he has 50/50 genetics
    50% of him is black
    50% is white
    call him black
    i will call him white, rightfully
    we can settle for the most accurate and rightful description
    he is the first mixed raced president
    as ali said,
    he is the first president to have black ethnic origin, or part of him

    don't you understand
    by having a preference for blue eyes and green eyes
    you autotmatically seclude 99.999% of asians and black people?
    why? because they have brown eyes.
    so you may call it a preference, but a preference like that is dangerously horrible.
    i'd hate for a girl/guy to say to someone who likes them
    sorry, i don't want to date you, you don't meet my preferences
    I also like people with brown eyes...I just said light eyes can look very attractive on North Indians...I still don't see what's wrong with that. I didn't say they look bad with brown eyes, I still think they look nice.

    People don't date those they don't find attractive. Everyone finds different things attractive. And there is nothing wrong with that.

    but i dont think that is very true. many mixed race people will emphasise the fact that they arent actually fully black to make themselves (?) feel better/more accepted. this is true.

    I'm sure in the very olden days Obama wouldn't be allowed to sit at the front of the bus or drank from the "white" americanswater fountains. Neither would Tiger Woods or Lewis Hamilton... Rosa Parks had white descent in her yet she still had to sit at the back of the bus. Just sayin

    ummm....just because you have a preference for a characteristic doesn't mean you will never ever look at anyone who doesn't have that characteristic. I know it's a pretty wild and crazy notion, but a lot of people actually find personality more attractive than any physical features. I know, shock horror!

    not because they were black
    i mean they had every right to be called white
    as well as black
    the society at that time hated mixed race people who watered down their precious pure white genes

    I thought you said we can't call him black? :rolleyes:

    Also, I'm pretty sure Lewroll meant you can't call him "the first white president" because there have been several other presidents before him who were white.

    so you're saying,
    hey 99.999% of blacks, hey 99.999% whites
    i prefer coloured eyes
    you don't have them
    i will allow it
    dwrry, you don't have gorgeous eyes
    so i will judge on personality
    yes
    it's bull.

    However many others (especially in america, from my first hand experience) will refer to themselves as black. Obama is an example of this.
    So i suppose the question we have to ask ourselves is, Why?

    very good question.

    i didn't say he was the first white president
    and by black person, i meant his father.
    i know there were 43 white presidents before him...!

      You did, you said "I could easily call him the first white president". That's what Lewroll quoted you saying.
