    One of my friends is mixed race and she jokes about her race but i think she hates the minority part of herself. Kinda weird because she jokess about her non-caucasian side quite a lot and on facebook talked about hair and her ****** east asian genes (N). Should i talk to her about this or just leave it as it is? It's quite common?

    I doubt talking to her about it will make any difference at all.

    Yeah pretty common. Cite most black comedians that play the race card to be funny.

    ye a few o my friends are like that, as in mixed race and prefer one side a bit or even hate the other. i wouldnt say anything either unless the its the race jokes that are an issue and making you uncomfortable

    One of my neighbours is like that. When he came to view the house before he bought it and moved in, he was talking to my mum and dad in the garden and was going on about how he liked our street because he wouldn't have to live with all the Asians like he used to, and he was of Asian descent himself :dontknow:
