Are mixed people black Watch
That still means you're mixed if we're being technical, since you just said you were mixed.. For example, when they have forms where you have to put in your race, you would put in mixed, right? Because that would be the accurate answer. You can still refer to yourself as black if you wanted seeing as you are part black and (I'm assuming) look more black than white, but that doesn't take the facts away.
You can call yourself whatever you want, but don't feel the need to have a label, it can be very restricting. I suppose if you look blacker than white then you can call yourself black if it makes you feel better, but genetically you're mixed. You can always just say you're part Jamaican part English.
Everyone related it back to the old ages and if you think about it people are still in slavery and ethnic minorities are still disadvantaged
I don't understand the current point you're making; slavery in the modern ages doesn't exist, at least, not the slavery that occurred hundreds of years ago... it would be cruel to compare it to that. I am an ethnic minority, so I'm not just saying this out of nowhere, and we are disadvantaged.
If we're talking about the old ages, then mixed people were separately called out too, as "half-caste".
To sum up what I'm trying to say is mixed people are not black, they're mixed (technically) tho I can see how some people might see different from first glance. And both mixed and black people received prejudices since they were minorities (and it still occurs to this day, to a much lesser extent).
Others are a bit more lax and will class you as mixed race so long as you don't look fully black, but look like you are a blend
White racists do it because of the old 'one drop' rule that was a signifier of racial purity.. white is only white, one drop and your not it any more..
Progressive racists do it because there is political advantage to be gained by combining all 'non-whites' into a single big group. If you live in a white-majority country, the more people you group together to for the 'other' block, the stronger you are.. so they take everyone who isn't absolutly white, and lump them into BAME/POC type groups, where you would certainly be considered black, even if you are equally white/black, or even have more white than black in your ancestry.
So for you, as harsh as it is, and for their own reasons.. most people consider you a type of black. They may say 'mixed race' but, mixed race in peoples minds falls into the organisational catagory together with black.. not white.
Anyways if you look something like rihanna, you're BLACK. her easy ability to get a dark tan, her face features, voice tone, HAIR makes her black regardless of fairness of skin. Also her eyes don't count as I know fully black dark ppl with hazel eyes..
When if you're like Alicia Keys, you're black. Why? Because her afrocentric features are undeniably there. Making her black mixed but the world class that as black. Same for an East Asian mixed ...to everyone except them lol they are seen as ASIAN because those eyes and that hair and the nose can't be escaped.
No idea why you're worrying about it anyway. If you're filling out paperwork check off black and then other, or two or more races or whatever it says. Since you have black in you, regardless if it looks that way, not selecting black is pitiful and a lie.
