@boss, this is for you, you need
Your eyes checked, you can clearly
See that this man is mixed,mixed
Black people can come in many
Different looks, you think mixed
Black people come in one white
Pale, skinn tone, and thats for
From the truth, you dont habe to be white
As a wall to be mixed, to me i can see the mixture in
Him,, and for people saying his not cute,
It doesnt matter because,everybody
Is not attracted to the same thing
We all ugly to somebody and we all
Look attractive to somebody, mixed
Not mean you will be attractive, there’s
Somebody for everybody thats a
Fact, im multiracially mixed threw
Both of my parents, our colors
Are from pale,to pinkess,to light
To red to tan to brown,from tall
,short,average,thick,skinny,hair straight
To the shoulders,waist,butt, thigh,
And to the knees, my aunt the only
One who has that knee length, which
Is a blessing,shes never cut her hair,
And way some of us in my family
Looks,white, hawaiian, spanish,
Native american and black, so guess
What we are all multiracially mixed
And we are all from the same family
,so my point is to you mixed race
People just dont come in one look
They come in different looks, looking
Like other races,its all about genetics
And genes skipping, and how up close
Your mixture is, not hundreds of
Generations back, im.talking about
Parents,grandparent,greatgrandparents,
So wake up and stop being ignorant
