            Venting!!!!

            Alright y'all,
            I just needed to get this out before I go nuts on somebody. So, I am talking to some of my friends online when one of my friends decides to invite her boyfriend to the chat room. I'm like, that's fine, he may feel a bit uncomfortable with the female talk tho. So anyway, we get to talking about genetics and family and whatnot...when he makes this smartassed comment about me being mixed.
            First he asks "So...what are you?"

            I say, "5'3 and 107 lbs"

            He, "No, I mean, are you like some kind of race or something?"

            I said, "I'm mixed...Cuban, Native, Irish, and Black"

            He, "O, are you sure? YOu don't act like you are mixed. I mean, where's your feathers and how come you don't speak spanish? Are you just black and trying to get govt. money?"

            I thought I was going to spear him

              OMG :Shocked and what is he?Girl don't even worry about him,he just showed how ignorance is still a major problem today.I feel ya though, I'm Native,Scottish and Sengalese(blk) and people always question me.If you know who you are that's all that really matters and he's not your boyfriend so he can just mind his own buisness.Be proud of who you are.He probably don't know nuttin' about his family ties.Keep ya head up girlie

                Oh I am totally okay now....I am just so freaking tired of this ignorance...I mean, people should know by now about the laws of genetics, culture, and just plain common sense to know that anybody could be anything without the aid of general stereotypes. I guess I should be used to it by now, it has been going on since the day I was born.
                Oh well,
                Pray for those who need it, right?

                  You know I figured I'd get used to it by now too since it's been happening since birth myself(I looked asian for a while and slowly got my color) and yet I'm not.I don't think I can get used to sad ignorance.I'm glad to hear that you are okay.Talk with you later

                    well welcome always happy to meet someone new. how did you get so many rep points already, i still don't have any, :( sad little me. lol, anyway did you ask your friend why she is with someone who is so ignorant? you know i do not think that you ever get used to the hate. my daughter is native and mexican and my son is native and black, maybe they will change the world, hee hee is that not one of the reasons we have children, to make us better. chin up girl

                      :hey!:
                      Just arrived yesterday! I've never done this before so I'm kinda backward about what to say, although I did have to reply to some of the feedback I read from the one about white people dancing... it gets old hearing people making fun of those who say my grt gramma was Cherokee... cuz for some of us it's true, the problem is she traded off one culture for another & ripped us off without thinking about how it would effect the rest of us in the future.
                      Anyway, Hi to all & my grt gramma was Cherokee so that qualifies me like it or not. I'm not looking to claim anything, Just proud of where I come from!!!!!!!!!!!!

                      So much for being backward huh?!
