  1. i have to say im one of those people who heavily identify with blackness but i def get some "side eyes" from a lot of people (both black and non-black) who question how "fully black" i really am theres always a question of "where r u from? wat r u?" and when i say black it's "yea but what about ur family? u know ur grandparents n stuff" lolllllll. blackness is beautiful. i really see myself as a black person with mixed heritage. i love my black culture and honestly wouldnt trade it for anything else
  2. it bothers me that she dresses in indian garbs only because she doesn't seem to celebrate her black heritage or speak up about it as often im all for people celebrating who they are but if ur gonna celebrate all of it, truly celebrate all of it...not just some of it. i know someone who has a multi-racial mixed black/white/indian grandmother and they identify as multiracial because of her (their grandmother literally looks like a white woman with a tan lol) their other 3 grandparents are black though. do u think theyre going too far identifying as multiracial?
  3. what about people with multi-racial parents or grandparents? yes i love them, another is ananda lewis. dont know if u heard of her but look her up if you havent, shes def part of that club lol what do u think of people who actually appear multiracial identifying with their multiracial heritage? i can kinda understand why some people may identify with their lineage if they see it looking them in the face every day in the mirror lol kinda hard to ignore that and they maybe want to connect with it IMO
  4. i love her but i do "side eye" her sometimes because she is quick to throw on the indian garbs but she doesnt' speak out about black stuff at all. like with everything thats been going on through BLM, etc. not a peep from her. i could understand someone just wanting to celebrate ALL of who they are, but i feel that she kinda puts the indian heritage above her black heritage. its crazy cuz tatyana ali is half indian through her dad, and shes always speaking up about black stuff and standing up for blackness. as you can see i have a thing for gorls like tatyana , chilli , etc. lol i follow them a lot. i guess cuz people think i have that kinda "indian/dravadian" look to myself as well. lol i can kinda relate to them
  5. what are you first thoughts? do u feel thats taking it too far in her case?
  6. no, chilli actually calls herself Blindian, and she dresses up in Indian garments as well and celebrates the culture this is her current Twitter profile pic: im not sure if it's fair to say her non-african heritage isn't "valid" it's def part of who she is...and some people actually see the "indian" in her and consider her to be somewhat racially ambiguous.
  7. Do you not think it's a bit problematic to feel Black people should base their entire self-identity off of what a White racist sees them as? i love ur posts
  8. You think kamala harris tries to claim something else? she's half indian lol Tiger is actually half asian ...they both have whole "other" parents.
  9. She is Black and 1/16th Indian (from her great great grandpa), and refers to herself as "Blindian". Would you consider her mixed race?
  10. lollll I totally agree with the point you made about african and european mixtures sometimes making a faux "indian" look there's an artist name Toni Romiti...I'd say she looks very Indian but she's a mixture of African American and White ( Italian )
  11. Yes I know what you mean. Caucasian from Ireland. lol Whatever you wanna call it , it's from slavery and not something I take enough pride in to make sure I am labeling correctly. My roommate/buddy posted me on this site before - I think you were one of the people in the topic/thread. He invited me to join here. He posted my pic and explained my racial makeup but really didn't have my full story. You guessed I was mixed with Dravadian? You remember my face.
