... the other Black experience

Tired of hearing "Mixed kids are the cutest kids"?

Are you tired of hearing "Mixed kids are the cutest kids"? What the hell is this theory about anyway?
TheRoot.com published a piece about this topic.
Excerpts: "A friend got the biscuit analogy. Wait for it: God burned black people and undercooked white people, but removed her from the heavenly oven at the perfect moment, she was told. Awkward. Well-intended. Poorly thought-through. A window into our shared cultural stuff about identity. These statements are all these things at once."
"And just take a wild guess how this idea has popped up for black people. You got it: In order to demean and oppress African Americans, thought leaders throughout history, including the likes of Thomas Jefferson, have said that black-white mixed offspring are better, more attractive, smarter, etc., than "real" blacks and not as good or attractive or smart as "real" whites."

I have a mixed race child myself(of course that them in itself doesn't really tell you a lot.) I guess people do say that mixed race kids are. Personally I think all kids are amazing

My wife and I are "mixed" but all though she is White and Black , I am Spanish and West Indian so it kills me that people when they say mixed kids they mean W/B. beyond this....um all kids are cute so the statement is stupid.

I'm tired of this. Mixed people, especially females are always ranked higher on the beauty scale. I have heard many black people saying that they would marrying someone who is white just so that their kids could be lighter and have "good" hair.
