Skip to comments.Who really has more biracial families?
Posted on 01/30/2014 3:40:47 PM PST by MNDude
Recently MSNBC made the statement that the "right wing" would hate a biracial family.
A page on Twitter made by conservatives with biracial families immediately went up: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23MyRightWingBiracialFamily&src=hash
When I think about it, I can't help but wonder who is really more apt to have a "biracial" family? I suspect it's conservatives by a long-shot, here's why:
1. From what I've seen, middle class and upper class liberals usually seem content to have their one or two biological children. Conservatives tend to have larger families. Almost all of the children adopted from China, Guatemala, Korea, and Africa have been from very conservative and religious families.
2. I've known many conservative military service men that married women from the Philippines, Vietnam, or wherever they were stationed. Liberal men are much less apt to join the military and have this option available to them.
3. Many of the American men and women I know that are married to someone from India or Africa are those from missionary families. There's no one more conservative than missionary families.
Although we probably really can't call them conservative, but they were Republican Presidential candidates, Romney has a black grandchild, McCain has an adopted daughter (Guatemala?), Bush has several Latina in-laws.
I doubt there's any data on this topic anywhere, and I guess it doesn't matter other than exposing the endless hypocrisies the left.
What have you observed?
Such things must really frighten the left. They realize that they can’t see a non white face and know for sure if it belongs to them.
Actually, what I’ve observed in my environment is what you did...a proclivity for intact biracial families to be conservative.
Although I have seen a lot of biracial children raised by single moms.
First of all...who cares?
I recently found out I am part Neanderthal....
My ancestors were wiped out by Humans!!!!!
So I too now want reparations!!!
My family is biracial, as is my sisters.
It’s inevitable that his trend will kill race-hustlers.
There WAS an African-American couple there too in Kenya, perhaps looking for THEIR "roots," and they were SHELL-SHOCKED at how LIGHT they were compared to the Kenyan tribes. They were dark compared to ME but almost white compared to the Kenyan tribes...ALL of them. It was good for all of us to see that.
So this article on biracial family only amuses. MOST "African-Americans" ARE biracial, whether they think so or not.
If they don't believe that statement they need ONLY to take a trip "back to Africa"--hah, what a joke--and just see with their own eyes how African they are NOT.
about 1/16,000th of my DNA, LOL
Our family is. I’ve had a number of liberals ask me why I married a white wife. uhh...because I love her. Duh.
Since liberals are the great murderers by abortion of babies one could assume they have the same regard for children after they are born...
The sun is stronger in Africa. This makes Africans blacker (more tanned in a way)than blacks who live in America. Also as you mention, the white and Indian blood that American blacks have flowing in their veins
Actually, what Ive observed in my environment is what you did...a proclivity for intact biracial families to be conservative.
I have seen that too. In fact a fried of a friend of mine is a really sweet black woman who is married to this really nice white guy.
Before she found her husband my friend asked her why she decided to start dating white guys. She responded that she wanted find a good black man to settle down with but that they are rare as hen’s teeth and they get snapped up pretty quickly and that she wasn’t just looking for a white man, but she was looking for a respectful nice man, no matter the race.
My friend has said that some of her blood relatives won’t talk to her anymore because they think she “betrayed her race”. She said her in laws family are all very nice folks and she has never felt unwanted around ANY of them.
Which is kinda sad example of how the leftist cannibalization has screwed up this country.
EXACTLY! The only people who worry about it are the "quota" types; i.e., liberals!!!
Who cares which side has more biracial families? The only way for this country to get over its racial divide is to stop counting people by race, stop dividing us by who our ancestors were. Treat people like people whenever possible. For now, that’ll have to exclude groups of urban “yutes” for the obvious safety reasons, but the larger picture still holds true.
Talk about rude.
Next time, ask them why they married an ugly one!
They absolutely require racial devisions.
They care like a crack whore craves a crack pipe.
When it was proved to the public that George Zimmerman is one eighth black and three eighths native South American, the left went ballistic and doubled down on the goofy white supremist allegations.
Barack Obama had to make a great show of registering himself African American on the census - even he could not be publically multiracial within the upper echelon of the Democrat party.
So obviously a lot of people care in some regions.
Here in the southwest multiracial families are pretty much the norm though.
The issue is this:
The left is so race focused that biracial relationship is a political statement on their part. So if they engage in one becomes the person a political statement accessory instead of a one to one relationship. That does not produce a healthy relationship
Sadly someone is no longer human being they become a statement and accessory to prove you’re something special.
Yep. The African dark hair, skin and eyes don't absorb the sun so much because they get PLENTY of sun anyway and don't need the "absorbing" skin, hair and eye colors.
Apparently, the reason the northern folks have such light hair, eyes and skin is because they absorb the "rarer" sunlight easier than the darker hair, skin and eyes. At least, that's the latest reason for color. Nordic folks get SIX months of darkness.
I was in Finland during June one year, wearing my SUNGLASSES at 10:30 at night. Mind you, the sun came up but never rose more than a few degrees above the horizon. So strange.
Also in Finland (Suomi) I NEVER saw so many drunks (all men) IN MY LIFE. They were scattered all over Helsinki, drunk as wheelbarrows.
Finland DID have the BEST ice cream I ever tasted....must be LOADED in butter fat.
Biracial, multi-ethnic, multi-denominational, bi-lingual, right eye dominant Southpaws... my family sometimes doesn’t know if its coming or going!
“George Zimmerman is one eighth black and three eighths native South American”
Is that correct? I thought it was 3/8 white.
It’s about vitamin D creation, which is done with the assistance of UV light.
Obviously blacker skin absorbs more light...but absorbs it generally before it penetrates very far.
Thanks for you impressions of Finland. Also a very high suicide rate.
Now you can ponder why Nordic dogs (huskies etc) tend to have blue eyes same as Nordic people
Why, so they do!
Duck Dynasty guy has an adopted Chinese (Asian?) daughter
Yes, I know.
Half white through his dad.
His mom was from some village up in Peru, with an African grandfather. Pictures of Zimmerman’s mom with her grandparents show a pretty dark skinned family, and if you watched her and Zimmerman’s uncle during the trial they are a lot darker than most African Americans despite being only one eighth African.
The open pride in their multiracial heritage was unhinging to the Sharpton/Jackson crowd.
How do you get reparations and group guilt if we become one people?
When my sister went to Finland in 1959, she was shocked that all the people jumped into the sauna NAKED!
She wore her bathing suit.
Morena Latina wife appears to be morena Latina. After nearly 20 years, well, when did that happen?!?
This right winger has no problem with such families.My concerns are that they be married, one man one woman, and best if Christian or Jewish.
They're laughing now. I feel so persecuted... : )
I have seen that, too. I have found myself in conversation with some that turned to reasons why they got married. Both sides tended to say things like it was impossible to find like minded (conservative, wanting to be married, not hooking up, among same race others.
I have no issue with biracial families. When a man loves a woman.... I do look on in wonderment at bipartisan families. Not allowed in our house. :-}
When WASP (White Anglo Saxon Protestant) was the term of derision for the dominant American culture Walter Williams used to call American Negros BASPs because they shared the dominant culture and had nothing in common with Africa beyond some of their genes.
Duck Dynasty’s Willie and Korie adopted a black child and named him after Willie. But libs hate the Robertsons. Libs also come unglued when a white family wants to adopt a black child because the poor kid won’t know his culture.
My four kids are all ‘halfies’. Me - I’m an American mutt (says ‘negro’ on my bc), and my wife is German/Irish by blood.
Yep. There's almost no such thing as a racially pure black American. My family DNA is European, African, and Native American.
The 'one drop' rule still applies, though.
the only biracial who pretends not to be is you know who.
whatever happened to his sister.?they never talk about her.
But every election they've always got a Republican campaign sign in their yard. Hardly enough for a statistic, but still.
There were genetic studies of African Americans finding that the average one is one third to one fourth Caucasian.
There’s no real way to know. Loving your children no matter what their skin color should be universal.
I have one friend who is a conservative black man. He and his wife have two adopted biracial daughters, along with three other kids, both black and white, who they raised as foster children to adulthood. Those kids are still part of their family.
I also have a very liberal friend who has adopted two children from South America and Africa. He and his wife went through the struggle of finding out they couldn’t have children and have gone around the world to be great parents. One, they adopted, knowing she needed lifesaving surgery and spent untold amounts to save her. She is happy and healthy.
People who are good, kind and loving can look past the surface no matter what their politics. Ugly people like the MSNBC tweeter see politics before anything eles.
Tons of blacks have American Indian blood. I don’t see it ever discussed much. But it is obvious in people like Tina Turner and Michael Jacksons father, Joe. Lots of blacks from Oklahoma have Indian blood. I guess Texas too
“Ive had a number of liberals ask me why I married a white wife.
Talk about rude.
Next time, ask them why they married an ugly one!”
Bi-racial family here. Both conservative as the day is long.
I read the Mexican population has 2-3% African blood. I was surprised to read this
Who did the study? British Science?
Well, Williams is known for his libertarianism.
He obviously hated his own culture, using our culture norms as an epithet of derision.
Being Anglo-Saxon, or whatever, is merely the result of immigration from Britain. They WERE close to the East Coast.
Being Christian is the result of Jesus.
I guess Williams forgot about the millions of Italians, French, Spanish (all of the West) and Irish who FLOODED and settled this country because of the famines, wars, droughts and such of their homelands. Some of my own ancestors (father's side) ended up here because of European wars, and Mexican and French Revolutions.
There was even a big bump of Russians who ended up on the WEST coast because of THEIR revolution.
Williams wanted his "punch line" for deriding his OWN country.
He's NOT all bad, either. No one is except Satan and his minions.
