Tiger’s mother was born Kultida Punsawad. Tiger’s maternal grandfather was Thai. Tiger’s maternal grandmother had a Dutch father and a Chinese mother.

Tiger is a practicing Buddhist.

Tiger has two children with his former wife, Swedish model Elin Nordegren.

Tiger’s paternal grandfather was named Miles Woods (the son of Katherine). Miles was born in Louisiana.

Tiger’s paternal grandmother was Maude E. Carter (the daughter of Lewis/Louis Carter and Hattie). Maude was born in Kansas. Lewis was the son of Valentine Carter and Amanda.

and be honest he does not fit n that sport

andrew November 18, 2015 at 5:03 pm

one the greatest golfers of all time does not fit in golf LOL

Btw The Telegraph describes Tiger’s father as having also Caucasian ancestry from his maternal grandmother

cwm85 July 16, 2015 at 3:18 pm

ITs funny how when he acknowledge he was not just black how a lot of blacks were offended. His mother is Thai, dutch and Chinese… how disrespectful it would have been for him to ignore his moms heritage like that.. his own heritage. Some people are so ignorant in their attempts to make this society in 4 races. A lot of us are multiracial.

arjanguelsk August 11, 2014 at 10:03 am

He is mixed

Check7t August 11, 2014 at 4:22 am

Looks like an Asian with dark skin.

ShawntheGod July 27, 2014 at 4:59 am

Kinda looks Cambodian.

ssempre July 6, 2014 at 2:09 pm

I could tell that he’s partly asian.

Marseille June 14, 2014 at 12:40 pm

He’s rich as fuck.

Marseille June 14, 2014 at 12:20 pm

I meant to say *part Asian, that’s all.

Marseille June 14, 2014 at 12:20 pm

Clearly looks Asian, not black.

indo March 19, 2014 at 11:37 pm

It’s ashame how he doesn’t want to identify with his black side.smh

Rokai May 29, 2014 at 9:05 pm

I know right almost every mixed person who has African DNA in them always gotta throw in biracial and saying they ain’t black just to distinguish themselves from black people even though they have similar features to them but still claims that they’re not black and yes black people in America are mixed too but we never claim that we’re biracial.

WTF June 7, 2014 at 7:12 pm

omfg you must be a black hater. smh. not all mixed people have to identify as black, you asshole. we’re not black, we’re fucking MIXED. a product of two (or more) races. the one drop rule so fucking stupid. i think it’s bullshit. his mother is thai and his father is black. how does that make him just black? he’s mixed. same thing with halle berry. her mom is white and her dad is black. she’s not just black. she’s mixed. this is 2014, more and more people are pushing past the norm and identifying as mixed or biracial. AND i don’t know why it’s any of your gotdamn business anyway. it’s HIS choice, NOT YOURS. so back the fuck off and stop trying to get us mixed people to disown and forget our other half and just identify as “black”.

Hyun Ahh June 12, 2014 at 5:37 pm

Your sooo right

arjanguelsk August 11, 2014 at 10:08 am

thank u WTF! <3

Check7t February 23, 2014 at 1:19 am

Looks white to me.

indo March 19, 2014 at 11:38 pm

You’re joking right ?

WTF August 12, 2014 at 1:34 pm

LMFAOOOOO IDK why but that made me laugh… It’s really not even that funny but still…..

neiltennant February 18, 2014 at 4:49 pm

wannabe white

Hyun Ahh June 12, 2014 at 5:38 pm

How in hell is he a wannabe white person

arjanguelsk August 11, 2014 at 10:07 am

agree with Hyun Ahh in this point (How in hell is he a wannabe white person?) …. becouse he is not white… HE IS MIXED… because he have more ASIAN and BLACK genes and is obvious… then he is multiracial cuz he have 2 strong different races black and asian and a little of white…. then hi is mixed.

WTF August 12, 2014 at 1:36 pm

neiltennant is an ignorant dumbass. I HATE WHEN DUMBASS PEOPLE SAY ‘OH WHY U ACTIN WHITE’. just because someone is educated and isn’t a hoodrat/thug, that means they want to be white? fuck that shit. there are some ghetto ass white people who act black (aka wiggas/wiggers).

MettaWorkPlease November 7, 2016 at 5:51 pm

Tiger looks like what you’d get if a Martian mated with an alley cat lol
Tiger hates his black side, funny how he tries to milk his little white decent. Sure he’s mixed, but when you see him, you’re gonna assume he’s just black, unless if you have psychic powers to automatically deduct all his other roots. He’s 50 % black. Hard to believe he’d be accepted by Thai people as black as he is. But his dream is to be white, even those trailer thrash white hos called him the ‘whitest black man they’ve ever seen ‘

MCantu February 15, 2014 at 10:02 pm

Where I live Black people can’t stand him simply because he chose to not to identify just BLACK, we all know in Black and White world you can only be one thing even if you are mixed , They still chose to hang on to that one drop BS. You can tell this Man is half Asian he dnt look just Black or Asian because he’s mixed

JoeMcGood February 17, 2014 at 11:09 pm

Yeah. He’s one of the 2% mixed blacks that don’t identify as blacks

WTF August 12, 2014 at 2:42 pm

fuck off with that ingnorant shit, bitch!!!!!!

mixed people DO NOT have to identify as black just because of that stupid ass outdated “one drop rule”. i honestly don’t give two fucks about what black people think of me not identify as black. like tiger, i say i’m mixed, NOT BLACK. i’m not just black, i’m mixed. y’all can go to hell.

BTW!!! the one drop rule was invented by racist whites, so y’all dumbass black people are still supporting that shit.

neiltennant February 2, 2014 at 3:37 am

TIGER WOODS= 0 white

tinasheeeee August 12, 2014 at 2:45 pm

It clearly says he is Dutch too….

Petrarca October 28, 2012 at 9:29 pm

He looks very Asian in that photo.

Christian March 23, 2012 at 9:29 am

tiger woods is disgusting not only by his appearence and face but also by his behaviour

he is one of those ethnic people who do their best to look white

1. he is a conservative who votes republican

2. he has a white wife

3. his behaviour is very white

but look at him, he looks both asian and black,

i hardly see anything european or white in him

mids September 28, 2012 at 12:36 am

God you’re an idiot. No every white person is conservative or Republican. Who cares if his wife is white? How can you’re behavior be “white”?
he hardly looks european because he’s only an eighth European dumbass.

nnnnn September 28, 2012 at 12:45 am

Why disgusting? Nobody is forced to marry a black woman
or elect Obama. And yes, christian IS an idiot

Markus March 3, 2012 at 6:13 pm

he has a lot of mixes

donalda January 26, 2012 at 8:53 pm

He’s a blasian.

Lesciba October 22, 2011 at 4:06 pm

But what is he (Tiger Woods)??? How do u describe him in 1-word – what is he’s race???? u cant just say multiracial.. I mean, we have chinese, caucasian, blacks (like me), Indians.. etc – but what is he??? Or just human maybe??? A human cocktail?

tigerr October 23, 2011 at 12:10 am

u can say multiracial bc it’s anything more than one ethnicity. biracial means just two ethnicities.

Multiethnicchick April 15, 2013 at 10:03 am

no multiracial means more than one category of humans, multiethinic is more than one ethnicity

John Popovich September 20, 2011 at 7:44 pm

South East Asia’s original people were black, similar looking to Papuans or Australian Aboriginals…same goes for Thailand, Singapore, Philippines were black ( search Ati people), – almost every country in South East Asia…the Chinese came down and slaughtered the natives to the extent of extinction to many of the original natives..GENOCIDE 101

THEMastermind December 25, 2011 at 11:11 pm

According to wikipedia, South Asia is a caucasian region. Original people from everywhere were blacks (homo sapiens), they just adapted to climate developing different physical characteristics.

Selene-The-Immortal May 21, 2011 at 2:12 pm

He is ugly as fuck.

WTF August 12, 2014 at 2:45 pm

he’s not really ugly. he just ain’t that special looking. usually blasians are hot af, but he looks average as hell.

Baby666G May 21, 2011 at 11:35 am

wow, had no idea he had that much asian in him!

black and proud April 5, 2011 at 3:34 pm

Ok, katarina the ‘nordic’ shut up coz u r probably ugly anyway, get over yourself. Now the race thing, my 2 sense and fuzzy bear are right, totaly agree. Black children and women so seem to be put down a lot. What gets to me is that its not only the so called ‘white’ media, its the black media too, how come we never really see a dark beauty in music video ? Why is it that black people that are darker are put down by the ‘lighter’ black people. And about tiger woods, he has obvious identity issues, still the man messed up he’s own life so oh well. In my opinion, all colours and races and shades are beautiful.

Lesciba October 22, 2011 at 4:04 pm

U so right sweedy, black people like oppressing each other so much!!! & I like ur polite stance about races… but what is he (Tiger Woods)??? How do u describe him in 1-word – what is he’s race???? u cant just say multiracial.. I mean, we have chinese, caucasian, blacks (like me), Indians.. etc – but what is he??? Or just human maybe??? A human cocktail?

Katarina September 10, 2010 at 3:30 pm

white nordic looking women are the most beautiful women on the planet how can you blame him. Beauty has standards. I’m Icelandic the most beautiful ethnicity in the world:)

noob April 1, 2011 at 8:24 pm

hes clearly only a quarter black. People assume that because he’s brown, he must be half and half. But if he took of that hat and people payed attention his hair texture, it would be different. Native Americans can be brown, as well as Asians(thai asians)

WTF April 2, 2011 at 5:26 am


cut the crap,it obvious you don’t know anything,so be quite

WTF April 2, 2011 at 5:24 am


No they are not,no one can lay claim to that title

Alice December 29, 2011 at 1:41 pm


That’s your opinion, and other people have theirs, so shut up because that’s quite offensive to others. Icelandic is half/half to me, now that’s just me. I find no ethnicity ugly, if that’s what your thinking. In my personal opinion, I find Japan, Mexico, and Russia the my favorites, but I wouldn’t say out of the blues “Japan Mexico etc are the most beautiful because I’m Japanese and Mexican, Russian, so guys are more attractive to etc”. That’s not what I think that’s just my opinion

WHat you said is completely BULLSHIT no offense, because what your said was completely untrue, and my quote example was untrue (although I am interested in Japan Mexico and Russia) . Beauty does not have standards, because everyone has different views in what’s beautiful or not, it’s all over the world. Icelandic “nordic” women can have many critics from other people, just like any other ethnicity.
I don’t even get why your stopped by on Tiger Woods page and say that raucous comment. Tiger Woods ex-wife has nothing to do with his ethnicity people!

Anonymous September 2, 2010 at 1:05 pm

dont you see hes only mating with white women? if he loved himself he would mate wit women from different types of backgrounds, i doubt he would even look at a black woman

lexi September 3, 2010 at 2:28 pm

I can tell he has some self esteem issues. Maybe black women teased him growing up. I don’t know. Just making an assumption here. Wouldn’t be surprised if it’s true.

ethnic September 10, 2010 at 1:24 am

Why use the verb ‘mate’? hes not an animal. lol

WTF August 12, 2014 at 2:46 pm

why the fuck you care who he dates anyway? hahaha he’s laughing his way to the bank and your broke stupid ass over is worrying about who he dates/sleeps with. dumbass!

Anonymous September 2, 2010 at 1:04 pm

that dude is black n want dilute his race cause he hates himself. period!

He’s Mixed With Black!

creole baby504 August 12, 2010 at 5:46 pm

HE’S HOT!!!!!!!!

Anna August 10, 2010 at 3:58 pm

So he’s a douchebag….that’s not new news by any means….yes he is wannabe white but remember that the business he is in has many white guys who probably looked down on him. His life hasn’t been the happiest or most secure and he’s probably blaming most of his problems on the fact that he’s a dark minority. His children are beautiful though.

bombpants August 10, 2010 at 10:32 pm

Its amazing how the people around you can influence the way you feel about yourself. It can either make you or break you.

moi August 4, 2010 at 2:16 pm

the joke is he was too quick to claim he was blasian

but 18 hoes later society saw him as a straight up n*****

odd how the media can just revoke your ethnicity like that

ethnic August 4, 2010 at 10:02 pm

Are you sure the media are only depicting him as Black (not mixed ethnicity)

Do you have a link or any other evidence?

12.5 Dutch (Caucasian)
12.5 Native American

What colour will Tiger Woods’ kids be?

Black, of course!

Apokolypzx June 28, 2010 at 11:59 am

Tiger is biracial- period. Mongoloid designates race of asian people, a pure race, like Negroid or African that was never watered down by the blood of another race. There no such thing a one eighth a race. No one sprinkled Tiger with Native American blood. More over all native Americans designate their actual clan ie ( cherokee, apache etc.) Tiger’s father was African American, his mother Asian. That simple.

mo22 June 28, 2010 at 3:48 pm

that is simple. african american and asian.

~my 2 sence (FUZZYBEAR PLZ READ) September 3, 2010 at 7:33 am

you guys highlighting what people are…is only making them seem superior to a person who has one nationality one background etc. why not just say they are human beings and leave it at that…we are all equal n this obssession people have with race is making more people feel/seem superior to others im sick of mixed babies and women (particularly) being praised in the media…I am not saying that these mixed folks are not gorgeous and are not deserving to be showcased but while you guys are obsessing over these mixed folks…you are shunning people who not mixed (immediate family identify with one race)…this is ridiculous the more we focus on ourselves as being nothin more than human beings with feelings emotions and going through life the same way as everyone (surely some ppl struggle more than others), then the more this race thing will seem less relevant. ~my 2 sence

fuzzybear September 3, 2010 at 10:20 am

Whatttttt,LoL.I did read your post,sorry if I didn’t reply right away.Ok now I don’t want to make anyone look superior to anybody,that’s the last thing I would do.Now the mixed babies thing,that’s a losing battle.Now the only obsession I have is to stop others from looking at being part black as worst thing you can be.also denying all the great things they done,all these things are left out of history books,and never talked about,or if it is mention they try and say someone else did it.As far as everyone is concern blacks are nothing but slaves,and that how they have been raised to think.And I’m trying to stop that way of thinking.This is my only obsession.Now a person ethnicity is just interesting.No matter how much people deny it,we’re all connected,and as you say all human

Woods is a Sell Out May 27, 2010 at 10:16 am

He claims to be Asian and then takes sponsor money from a company that open exploits his own people. What does that say for his character? He is an American capitalist to the bone.

total23 May 27, 2010 at 1:57 pm

Well He Is More Asian Than He Is Than His Other Ethnicity, So He Has A Right To Claim Hisself As An Asian Man If He Is Majority Of!

Are You Guy’s Sure He’s Denying His Black Side?

Here’s A Quote:

“. . . My parents have taught me to always be proud of my ethnic background. Please rest assured that is, and always will be, the case — past, present, and future. The media has portrayed me as African-American; sometimes, Asian. In fact, I am both.Yes, I am the product of two great cultures — one African-American and the other Asian. On my father’s side, I am African-American. On my mother’s side, I am Thai. Truthfully, I feel very fortunate, and EQUALLY PROUD, to be both African-American and Asian …”

total23 May 20, 2010 at 5:55 pm
ethnic May 21, 2010 at 12:21 am

thats a great quote.

total23 May 3, 2010 at 2:02 am

Tiger Woods Is Mixed Regardless…..And His Father Said That He May Have Native American And Chinese In Him Because Of His Eyes. But For Sure Tigers Father Has White In Him Because His Father Stated That His Grandmother (Tiger’s Great Grandmother) Was The Most Beautiful Blonde You Have Ever Seen! So Tigers Grand Mother Was A Mulatto!

There Are Alot Of People Who Are Half White And Half Black But Look Like One Than The Other. And I Hate When People Try To Debate With Me That If Your Half Black And Half White Your Supposed To Have This And That….But NO! If Someone Is Half Black And Half White And Looks More Black Than White, It Doesn’t Mean That Black Is More Dominant Than White, It Means That The Person’s Black Parent Gene Is Dominant Than The WHite Parent Gene. There Are People Who Are Half White And Half Black And Look Like White Only And People Refused To Believe That Person Is Half Black… If You Did Not Take Biology, Then Don’t Try And Say This And That…..Research Before You Talk!

And Tooo JOEL. You May Not Know This But Native Americans And And East Asian Are Sub Groups Of The Mongoloid Race. So That Is Why Many People Think You Look Chinese. Alot Of Indios (Indigenous People Of The Americas; North America, South America, Central America etc) Have Those Kinda East Asian Eyes, So The Only Reason Why You Have The East Asian Eyes Is Because Native American Come From The Same “Great” Race As Other East Asian!

I saw his latest interview on TMZ and it appears that Tiger was living a double life. A secret life of addiction and denial.

one other thing,what’s does charbon mean?

Fuzzybear March 22, 2010 at 9:23 am

To Drexxx

Your right about that.The problem is you have to know the tribal name,or else you can’t find them on the net.That why people always think of black as one color,instead of and umbrella term

drexxx March 22, 2010 at 8:09 am

to chief mulatto native :
Pure blacks are not black as charbon, sorry !!!! You can have pure black people who are light skinned, there is a lot of african tribes where people are all very light skinned, like other tribe where ppl are completely black skinned.
I think you should make a trip to Africa to see it by yourself !!!!
Anyway i heard that tiger woods doesn’t consider himself as black, but asian. I’m not sure about it i was speechless when i knew it .

chief_mulatto_native October 22, 2010 at 4:33 pm

Those tribes had to mix with some Berbers, Arabs, Semetic, or European people in order to be lighter. They wouldn’t call “Negriods” “blacks”

ethnic March 21, 2010 at 10:34 pm

or maybe he paid? which would make him a trick

discussing races is narrowminded since you are a mixed culture. tiger woods only stands for himself but nothing else i think

Chief_Mulatto_Native February 17, 2010 at 9:31 am

Another comment, why do you all want somebody to be pure black? No offensive, please visit the Motherland if you want to see pure blacks so bad. In America, most of us are mixed.

Chief_Mulatto_Native February 17, 2010 at 9:27 am

Ok, to that comment that Tiger is so dark and his dad was full black.

Tiger Woods is not dark. He is caramel skinned and his father was, too. For anyone of African descent, caramel is not dark skinned! Dark brown and almost the color black is dark skinned. Caramel is admixture. And yes, there are dark skinned mixies because mixed people come in all looks. Pure blacks are dark brown to almost the color black. He is not dark skinned and he is not pure black. His dad was part black, part white, part Native American, and part Asian and his mother is white and Asian. That’s not pure black! Being pure black means having pure black African ancestry. That man is multigenerationally mixed, okay! Get it straight!

Lauren February 13, 2010 at 3:04 am

yea. I wish I could get one

ethnic February 12, 2010 at 11:09 pm

I think to get a true breakdown of Tiger’s ethnicity wed have to take a DNA test.

Lauren February 12, 2010 at 6:17 am

I dnt care what he says he is. His father is an average African American with small amounts of admicture. Tiger is half black in my book. He wants 2 be white so bad

Nathan Teasdale Mottram February 11, 2010 at 10:51 pm
Mike February 11, 2010 at 5:26 pm

He’s 5/8 asian (Native American, Thai, Chinese) 1/8 White (Dutch) and a 1/4 African

How could Tiger woods say he is 1/4 black when he is so dark. His dad looked like a full black man. He needs to shut up!!

ethnic January 11, 2010 at 11:30 am

epyon#12 thanks for the comment and links. it sounds like the woods family lived in a predominantly white environment which would have been very difficult for a mixed family.

Tiger Woods father and his discussion on race:


epyon#12 January 11, 2010 at 2:06 am

Tiger Woods, is black and Asian. His father, Earl Woods, in discussing his own ethnicity (see below), claimed that he (Earl Woods) was 1/4 black (yeah, right). I think due to the racial discrimination he faced back in the day, he wanted to deny being just plain old black. And, he didn’t want his son to be perceived as black.

Paul. he really looked Asian when he was younger.


Paul. January 8, 2010 at 5:42 am

It’s amusing to see how many people get worked up over race. =/
I could always see the Asian in him. His facial features look kind of Thai to me.

chico January 8, 2010 at 4:15 am

how does a nigga measure all that’s supposed to be in him. i guess i should do some dna work. maybe white people would treat me better.

NoName December 10, 2009 at 7:57 am

Wow is right- he white, he black, he dis, he dat… damn y’all need some edumacatshun

Purrlady December 7, 2009 at 9:38 pm

I don’t care what he calls himself … he’s just human.

almcg2 November 30, 2009 at 7:39 am

OK… more ignorance…. how could Tiger have dark skin and still only be 1/4 black? It’s called genetic dominance. Were sleeping or just stoned when your Bio class covered that. Darker skin is actually a dominant trait over light skin.

almcg2 November 30, 2009 at 7:36 am

By the way, Puerto Rican people have black people’s hair because they are part black you idiots! They are part hispanic, black and a few other nationalities. Here’s the website, read and see if you can learn anything instead of flapping your mount about things you don’t know. Man… you sound soooo stupid.

almcg2 November 30, 2009 at 7:31 am

To the person who said “he white,” learn to speak like an intelligent adult some day, it might come in handy. At any rate, he’s 1/8th Dutch, that makes him only 1/8th white. great many black people are of mixed heritage…. maybe even YOU!

By the way… the word is spelled “just” not “jux”. Man, some of the people on here sound so stupid. No wonder the Chinese, Indians, Cubans and many other nations are kicking our butt in the literacy rate and supplying new scientists, engineers, doctors, etc…. our younger generations are just soooo stupid. We don’t even have enough special ed support to cover this disaster, and they really don’t care. They have no idea how messed up their life is going to be in just a few short years.

Joel October 27, 2009 at 12:47 pm

Oh yea I’ve heard that 1 b4

ethnic October 21, 2009 at 5:26 pm

Thanks for that Joel. Some people may say that you are a ‘Blasian’. I think thats the term half Black and Asian people like to use.


Joel October 21, 2009 at 7:53 am

oh wow. Thats kool. I’m black but I have native American and white in me. I also look Asian and alott of people think im blackanese (black & asian mix) so I think I have a mix of alittle bit of everything but from wat I now: black, white, nd native American.

ethnic October 20, 2009 at 5:07 pm

East Asian, specifically Japanese. How about you Joel?


Joel October 20, 2009 at 10:16 am

I have a question 4 u ethnic… What’s ur background/ race?

ethnic October 18, 2009 at 10:42 am

It’d be really hard to guess Tiger’s ethnic background just by looking at him. What a diverse mix.

Joel October 18, 2009 at 2:13 am

omg. I thought he was half black half Korean. Boy was I wrong..

Yeah! October 12, 2009 at 9:46 pm

i agree i dnt claim him either, he can take the AA out for all i care!!

ethnic October 5, 2009 at 2:23 pm

He definitely has the African hair. A lot of Thai people have dark skin so his complexion could also be from his Thai heritage.


unknown October 4, 2009 at 6:16 pm

His appearance seem to favor his african american ancestery rather than his cacausian/asian ancestery.

islandgirl September 26, 2009 at 5:38 am

some of you sound ignorant lol!.. creole is black and french duh! it is neat to be mixed.. shoot we are human beings who cares about the other stuff!…………

ethnic August 1, 2009 at 7:29 pm

I think he prefers to be called Multiracial.

D2009 August 1, 2009 at 4:10 pm

He has Chinese & Thai in him, so that means he has more Asian in him than White. Rumor is he used to put Asian as his race and he corrected people who called him African American..

coolcat April 27, 2009 at 6:20 am

um…hes not white…he is a creole…wait that does mean mixed with a lot of things right? anywayzz he is sexy

ethnic January 27, 2009 at 1:36 am

I would tend to say he was more asian or black rather than white.

Bri January 26, 2009 at 2:23 am

He White!! i dont claim his a** at All!

Kimkyok August 9, 2009 at 9:47 am

You don’t own him so you can’t claim him!

MY 2 SENSE September 5, 2010 at 11:24 am

I get what you are saying…and i am not saying that a person’s ethnicity is not interesting but i notice in the media that a female who is just black are not considered beautiful for the most part. Look at the music videos…the comercials most “ethic” women and children highlighted looks stereotypically mixed…that is light skin with the so called good hair n i say so called good hair because long and wavy does not necessarily mean you have good hair…good hair is healthy hair n the media has brainwashed people into believin if you dont have the long wavy hair, then you are not worth being even thought of as beautiful! n this we have to stop …black people need to start defining their own beauty n ignore people who try to tear them down…we on the same page i just feel that we tend to praise a multiracial person over a person whom parents are both black whether they have been generationally mixed or not… and example of this is india irie vs alicia keys…think about it.

MY 2 SENSE September 5, 2010 at 11:32 am

I have to be against the “mixed” babies only praises…yes some of them are beautiful i am not denyin that…yes they deserve to be showcased…i am not sayin they dont deserve equal oppportunity…but as a black woman who will have black children in the future…whether they are mixed or not…i want them to kno that they are just as worthy as any other black or mixed children out there…n what i see now in the media does not reflect the beauty of black people…not just mixed n not just latina or white…they are beautiful black women and children out there…n we need to show that n appreciate that as well.

fuzzybear September 5, 2010 at 3:18 pm

To my 2 sense

Hello,well this is a trip,I can’t deny anything you wrote.Your right on the money about t.v and videos etc,and the women they choose.However with men it’s different,it tends to be the light skin brother out in the cold.Back to the subject,I have notice it alot lately.I watch these kid shows with my niece,and I’ve seen how all the little black girls in the show are mixed,while the boys are much darker.However in the cartoons it’s the opposite.The girls are always dark brown with short lumpy or press looking hair,except for Penny Proud and Jasmine from the Boondocks

fuzzybear September 5, 2010 at 3:33 pm

To My 2 Sense

Again,I can’t deny anything you wrote.Oh this is for legal purposes( this is to anyone else reading this,I am in no way disrespecting mixed blooded people or their children),that would be like spitting in my own family faces.

My 2 sense... September 6, 2010 at 8:28 pm

cartoon n reality are different…i mean cartoon shape the minds of children for the most part…but im sure reality is of greater impact…

fuzzybear September 6, 2010 at 11:13 pm

Well hello there,hope your enjoying your holiday.Anyhow,I think I have to disagree with you on this.Most kids I’ve seen don’t deal with reality,t.v. and videos games rule.Most don’t see or notice any kind of subtle racism.Here is an example,I took my niece to buy herself a birthday gift,she pick a mexican looking doll.I asked her why not the black doll,now granted my niece is light and the doll did look closer to her.However that’s not why she didn’t want the black one.She said it was because the black one wasn’t pretty.To me it looked just like the other doll,except for the dark skin and different hair,it’s the one she saw on t.v..Now the reality is she saw nothing wrong with what she said.Now she saw the look on my face, and assumed I was mad but she didn’t know why.BTW,I wasn’t mad just surprised.Now what I’m saying is kids live and breathe t.v. Also believe what they see on t.v. At least I did,I didn’t know we did all these things in the past.I believed those things I saw on t.v and reality did nothing to change it.But wait maybe it’s where you grew up at.Because in different places, you go through different things.I say this because some of things that I’ve read on this site and others,I don’t understand.How the light skin treated the dark skin,or black kids didn’t like me because I mixed etc etc.But I have seen at least on here ,how some mixed bloods get carry away.Saying their better because their mixed.Let me stop, I know your sick of reading this
