Are you it? I'm DEF not. Lol. Actually I'm probably seen as one of the goody goodies of my family. I don't think we really have a black sheep but if we did it would probably be one of my guy cousins. I have some BAD ASS cousins Lawd! Lol

I don't think we have one. I guess it'd be my uncle and his wife and kids. They quit talking to any of us.

 I am known as a problem to my family.  At my sister's wedding way back in 1985, her FIL met me for the first time and exclaimed, "Oh, so YOU'RE the trouble maker of the family!!!!!"  I was so embarassed but it is not surprising that they talk about me like that.  I have children out of wedlock and they are of not white like me.  My family does not approve of "race mixing" and we are not included in any family get togethers or holidays etc.  I rarely talk to them, only when I call my mother.  "She has a lifelong history of MENTAL ILLNESS...." but refuses to take any responsibility for what she did to me.  I wasn't born like this. 

I have suffered from severe depression ever since childhood due to abuse at their hands and they are obviously not only disappointed in me but embarassed as well by me and how I never really amounted to much in their eyes.  I struggle so much but I am not a bad person.  Never did drugs or drank or got into legal trouble. I just haven't been a favorite, to say the least.

Probably.because I'm the only one who grew up in the USA. I'm already seen as non traditional.

But I don't care I've never apologized for myself or my ideas. Plus it makes me very popular with our teens and younger family members.

I sure am. I'm the middle child. 2 older brothers, 2 younger sisters. everyone says I'm nothing like them. I hardly drink, I never smoked nor done any drugs. My 2 older brothers and 1 sister smoke and drink pretty much every night. I'm the calm one in the family. I keep to myself. I listen to country music and not rap like the rest of them do. I want to be successful in life and they well...they rather not work. So yes I'm very much so the black sheep. always have been always will be. Oh yeah and of course I'm the first and only one to get pregnant out of my mom's kids.

I am the black sheep but i dont mind it



Me and my SO are the most independent ones out of the 18+ in my family



being the black sheep i learned how to do a lot of stuff on my own and decided that i liked not having to ask family for money every month (like my sisters)



So i feel like being a black sheep was a good thing for me

My family hates mixing races and hates Muslims so I'm the black sheep in my family since my husband is black and we're Muslims.   Since my family are racists we're in agreement they will never see our kids.  I won't allow our kids to be picked on for their skin color or our religion.

I'm sure I am because I'm on PA(getting off of it soon...hopefully) and I'm not a republican like they would prefer me to be. Oh well....they can suck a dirty,hairy nut.
