What encouraged me to start blogging?

Growing up I always felt like no one understood me or could to relate to me. I had one friend that I met that was also biracial but I felt that it was still something that separated us. In my opinion she identifies more with her black side, unlike me who feels like I am equally both black and white. It was hard not having someone who could share the same experiences with you. During the time I began blogging there weren’t many sites for biracials to share and speak out on their experience.

I reached an epiphany when I discovered Tiffany Jones youtube channel and wordpress blog, Mulatto Diaries. For once I found a stranger who shared the same experience and had some of the same feelings toward racial issues as me. Watching her videos made me feel like she was a friend to me. Someone who spoke up and spoke out to those biracial individuals with no voice. At the time and even now the resources available for biracials are limited. The biracial community is small. I encourage others to create a blog of sort to speak out to others. I remember feeling lonely as if no one shared the same Biracial experiences with me until finding Tiffany Jones vlogs & blog. The small and limited biracial community encouraged me to write because I wanted to leave footprints on the internet for young biracials that may feel lost and alone. I write down my opinions and personal experience so the lost ones can feel found.

Through personal growth I have come to realize that despite culture and races separating us we are more alike than ever. As different as we all may feel, we are alike. We are human. We eat, sleep, cry, smile and breathe all the same.

Until next time . . .

    I am an MGM or multi-generation mulatto. You have a lot of bi-racial people that marry over a few decades then you almost create a new race. Can’t really explain it. The kids come out looking like however God wants them to. Messes with people’s heads when black people don’t look a certain way. Wrote a blog about it.

      I agree. I am positive that one day there will be no such thing as “race” because everyone will be mixed. In reality everyone is mixed already it just goes unacknowledged.

      P.S. you just taught me new lingo. . . “MGM, Multi-generation mulatto”. I like that!

    As a kid growing up in the 70’s, I grew up in a racially mixed neighborhood and I went to mix school and my first little girlfriend was Hispanic. I love to see interracial men & women couples because they have an open heart and an open mind and see the world the way God and Christ sees the world, love sees no skin color. I love to see movies and t.v shows that have happy interracial couples that last and besides if everyone was obviously racially mix (where it can easily be seen in their skin tone) it would help erase racism and bigotry in America and in the world. When I see racially mixed couples, it tells me that America is getting better. I feel that everyone who is bi-racial should admit their whole racial heritage and not just one race.
