as for your other question, you can kiss my ass.
never. not in a million years.

why are you so sensitive about your color? you must be very bright. gawd. no different than someone asking if you were dark.

i didn't call you a redbone or yella. so, i don't know why you're all bent out of shape. this is obviously a sore spot with you. don't try to take it out on me.

Re: Reality TV show exposes racism in China

She's very beautiful. Maybe those Chinese are just jealous that she can actually sing? They probably all sing like William Hung. Just kidding.

I read somewhere that the darker gene always dominates. I know of an East Indian/White couple whose kids look Indian, a Japanese/Black couple whose kid look black, but my cousin who has blonde hair blue eyes is married to a half-Chinese/half-caucasian and both their kids have blonde hair blue eyes. I should add that all these children are exceptionally beautiful.

When pressed on what her notion of dad is, she says that her mom plays both the roles of mom and dad anyway. There's nothing a dad can teach that her mom hasn't taught her.

Also she poked fun at America in the interview. There was this fake posting made in her name on the net, where she apparently said "My dad is not African; he's American!" And she said of the posting: that's silly. (Why would anyone say that like it's a better thing?) We China are America's biggest creditors.

This is the interview, for those who can understand Mandarin:

She comes across as very put together and level-headed.
Oh well , I'm a sucker for happy endings Then again she has a right to her choice.

so yes, kudos to her for keeping her baby. women in less challenging situations have given their children up for "lesser" reasons.

Re: Reality TV show exposes racism in China

Maybe i am wrong but the gene for black hair is dominant over that for blonde hair. The allele for blonde hair is recessive. So a half black kid will have dark hair.

Re: Reality TV show exposes racism in China

Again, i maybe wrong but I can see how someone who is quarter black will have blonde hair but half black ? by the two gene model that i was taught its not possible.

Also Paula Abdul (for example) always looked more Middle Eastern to me.
Now I also remember that kid, tennis prodigy(forgot his name)...mother is Swedish, father black American. His hair was blond(ish) as I can remember.

the way you talk, it makes it seem like describing yourself as black is a precise definition.

obviously, most blacks in the americas have various degrees of mixture in them. yet, in the u.s., at least, we call them black. but it is an imprecisise (though useful) way of describing someone.

it should not be surprising that eartha kitt's daughter could turn out the way she does because eartha probably already has some level of mixture in her - she was light. and if her father was northern european in origin, it's not shocking (or surprising) at all that she would turn out the way she looks.

if i had a kid with a spaniard (who looked like nadal) she/he would probably be darker and look blacker than if i got with a norwegian.

so, i always chuckle when someone with a black american parent is said to be half black as if calling yourself black means you're pure. it doesn't mean that at all.

OMG...I am so sorry! I thought you meant bright as in smart,etc. i thought that you were trying to insult me. plese forgive me i misunderstood.

in answer to your question, i'm actually mixed-race myself and yes, i'm bright (in the context that you're asking) not light bright damn near...." though. why do you ask?

no oliviasmith. i know you're a clever boy/girl - haha i can't tell which you are and you're kinda coy about revealing that...

well, just your response when talking about not being able to always tell. i figured you were very light - you i think said you were nigerian and swedish.

And what do you know exactly about raising a biracial child in China?
Also...how can you claim that the women who gave up their children did it for "lesser" reasons?

You are very judgmental.

OMG! I can't believe I'm reading this. Is being "pure" black some elite club that half-black people are not allowed to enter?
