I felt like starting a thread for people of mixed ancestry.
African mixed with whatever else, like Indian, Asian, European, ect.
'Black' is a very umbrella term actually...
In that it's a term that attempts to describe and categorize people of various backgrounds, cultures, religions, shades, attitudes, political identities, orientation, all into one category simply based on a distant past African ancestry, no matter how minute.
Take the human President, who's always refered to as 'black' but never Irish, His mother was pure 'white', and father was pure African, yet the 'white' part of his ancestry is dropped off by most.
And it's the reason why others with a tinge of 'black' in them are often forced to identify with the 'black' doll community while young or old.
But dark skinned dolls can be just as un excepting as 'white' dolls, only you expect if from white dolls, and are shocked when black dolls engage in it also, but maybe for different reasons.
As such, light skinned black dolls usually find more acceptance in like Indian communities, or ethnic white communities, where no one really expects you to be anything other than yourself.
So for all other dolls who feel trapped in the middle of a plastic racial zone, you can express your experiences here.

Black male dolls, at least urban types, raised in the city, have taught me how to hate them, or at least fear them.
Funny thing is, before I moved to the city, I had a totally different view of black dolls.
I guess sad to say I had a Television entertainment view.
And or related to them as being like the ones where I'm from who had strict parents, and educationally orientated.
Where I grew up I was a minority, very few black dolls, and the ones you did see usually had their act together, were in college, or school, or had some type of degree.
And as a youth, parents only had us around University educated types.
It wasn't until I left that area that I started learning about 'hood' types, generational poverty types, generational criminal types. When I left area I'm from, became exposed to a whole class of former slaves I never new existed, hoods, ghettos, crime, lying, thievery ect.
I guess I was very sheltered as a youth, or just came from an area where none of that stuff existed.
In my eyes black dolls were all civil rights activists, victims, good people who were always under attack by the system.
Boy was I nieve.
I no longer feel that way, now I fear living around black male dolls, not cause I'm racist, but cause I've observed enough of their behaviors that it just scares me now.
Unlike a white doll, my views aren't formed based on preconceived ideas or racial superiority.
Rather my feelings have developed do to what I see daily, what I saw in the past, what I've been victim to in different ways.
They made me this way, collectively, the thuggish urban black crowed or culture.
The cruelty, being laughed at for displaying different styles or mannerisms that hollow brained urban bred hood types can't relate to, so they laugh, cackle, like hyenas in a pack.
And the Government keeps this class alive and fed do to Gov food and housing programs.
If not for the Government this class of urban dweller would not exist.
They are the Governments Frankenstein monsters, the Government is responsible for creating this urban jungle culture, and so is racist society to.
And banks, for not allowing people equal access to homes and opportunities back in the 60's, 70's, where they could escape urban culture and learn from others how to be civilized.
And scared white dolls fleeing communities and allowing them to decay, taking tax revenue with them.
All that aside, it is what it is, and I fear black urban male dolls, they just scare me.
When I look outside and see them, all I think of is crime, robbery, plotting, whispering behind your back.
Actually it's the unemployed types who scare me.
I would rather live around racist white dolls, than urban types...I just would.
Racist dolls can be annoying at times, but they don't seek to actively hurt you, at least not normal working class types.
I can live with racism, segregation, but what I can't live with is criminally minded urban black male dolls who always seem to want to hurt you first chance they get.
By stealing from you, setting you up to get ambushed (more stealing).
And all cause they were to stupid to stay in school and get normal free education like everyone else, now find selves older, with record, and unable to get good paying job, or any job, and so make others pay for their own mistakes by simply committing more crime and victimizing more people.
