    Personally, coming from a Israeli/Cypriot background I just love the altered traditions that both cultures celebrate, not to mention the stark variety of delicious foods from a european and asian culture.

    So what do you mixed race people appreciate about your background?

    ermm i don't have much culture... i rarely see the black side of my family, and to be honest there isn't much other culture or traditions to appreciate.
    but i do like the colour of my skin nowadays and my 'fro... everyone around here (devon/cornwall) seems to be completely obsessed with it... most seem to think that it's extremely rare or something :| the amount of people i have molesting it is unreal, but i like the popularity *i won the Best Hair 2010 Award*

    Somehow I don't think people would appreciate a "What do you enjoy about being white?" or a "What do you enjoy about being black?" thread. Just sayin'.


    We are quite buff though. :five:

    I am not mixed-race per se, but I am part of a multicultural background that is just so irreplaceable in my eyes :moon: I know what you mean in that case.

    I'm half black/half white.
    I quite like the fact that my family history is so different on either side. I also like the fact that people don't accuse me of being racist.

    "is it real?"
    "do you curl it every morning?"
    "how can i grow an afro?"
    "if i pulled one strand would it all unravel?"
    "do you have extra brains in your hair?"
    "how do you cut it?"
    "was it still curly when you were little?"
    "how long would it take to grow like a metre long?"
    "can i have the hair that gets cut off after your next hair-cut?"
