  • Nothing, im very proud of my kids and them being biracial shouldnt mean anything. I hate when people think it is wrong or not right to have biracial kids.

  • Ignorant jerks that say things like "at least they don't LOOK Mexican!"

    WTF is that supposed to mean. I want to say back...."well you don't look like an a-hole, but apparently you are."

  • What exactly is this question supposed to mean? What are you trying to say... that people like the attention? I have heard these children do not have an easy time in school.. it's very hard on them because no one accepts them.. white or black. They are not treated very nicely. Why would you ask something like this?

  • My husband is half Mexican but he doesn't speak Spanish. Good Lord he catches hell for not speaking Spanish. My children are 1/4 Mexican. I hate that they aren't "Mexican" enough to be considered "Mexican." Even my coworkers who know my husband and my kids will always scoff and say, "Oh, he's not Mexican."

  • My son is white/ black.. my daughter white/mexican. they are in school ppl accept them. Its adults that always have a problem. And those adults are the ones who teach their children to hate. Why would someone treat a child any diff just b/c, their skin is darker. Makes no sense... Im so happy we have a biracial President now. Shows kids they can do anything!
