the offspring of interracial couples..?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Do you have any negative feelings, at all, towards the concept of biracial children?  What state do you live in?

I live in the south and it is a word used by racist people. Colored makes no sence. Colored is pasted tense for color. The people who use it to describe black people, don't seem to smart. :/


Quoting Anonymous:

I don't get offended easily, so if I heard someone use the word colored I would just let them know it's not PC. But to others its a major sign of disrespect and seems very racist. If someone really doesn't know that it shouldnt be use, that's one thing, but theres plenty of people who use the term and still see blacks as they were seen when the term was frequently used.



Black or African American are the correct terms.

Totally different anon





Really? Growing up my dad made me call black people colored. He told me that it was rude and disrespectful to call them black. Now I'm all sorts of confussed. I'm not racist but I've always said colored :/

This is a different anon...







Umm colored is something the slaves were called! It's definitely not a term that anyone uses these days unless they are racist. If you're not, then I would consider not using it again.

How is that racist? Lol. It's not like she said n****r.

Colored? And you're not racist?

I dont have any negative feelings I have a "stepson" who is black/white. The ONLY thing I have an issue with is that the mother is colored and well on the ghetto side of the spectrum so we cant even think of going out in public with him because he does not know how to act civil AT ALL. We are trying hard but he is the cutest boy who stole my heart :]

My son is biracial and I think he's beautiful but then again I'm partially biased lol. However I do think that all children are beautiful despite their genetic makeup and background. I live in NYC btw.

I agree they are beautiful children. I have think love is love no matter what color you are or gender. I have no negative feelings towards any of it. I also live in MD just in the city. 

Quoting my_babies_n_me:

I think they are some of the cutest kids I have ever seen! I live in a very rural redneck/hillbilly part of MD. I grew up in WV.
Eta: I do not have any negative feelings towards them..that's silly and quite frankly, a little odd.
