It’s Black People’s Fault

mulattoxbeauty seems to be a bit young and naive, so I am considering this as I go through her recent post. When one reaches biracialtiffany’s age, it becomes tragic.

I have not written much on the “one drop fallacy”. That is, the belief that if you call a so-called mixed person simply Black or White, you are “one dropping” them. Many members of the mulatto movement seem to lose the ability to understand argumentation when you call Barack Obama Black. One can disagree with the GROUNDS of an argument, but agree on the CLAIM. An unrelated example:

My friend Jen and I believe homosexuality is normal (for some).  We share the same Claim. However, our grounds for believing this claim are very different, and actually may contradict each other. Jen believes sexuality is entirely scientific/chemical/uncontrollable. I do not. I believe the desire to be sexually active may be inherent and uncontrollable, but I believe there is a significant amount of social influence that helps us determine who/what we are sexually attracted to. This varies from person to person, but ultimately it is not totally natural (hetero or homo). Much of our sexuality is learned. I rely much more on social constructivist beliefs than Jen does. However, we have the same bottom line: being gay for some is normal.

Back to the topic.

Just because Barack calls himself Black, does not mean you have to call yourself Black. It does not mean he supports the one drop rule either. Same conclusion. Different reasons.

In actuality, bloggers like mulattoxbeauty support the racist grounds of the one drop rule (that we are inherently different racially) by insisting on defining certain people by racial labels they may not identify with. Mulattoxbeauty states:

Black and White homes are very different.

When I asked her *how* they differ, and how she would know, my post got deleted (sounds familiar? As I said in my first post, they aren’t interested in thinking). I am actually aware that many African Americans have different social traditions than White Americans. But there is no typical White or Black home. PERIOD. I asked mulattoxbeauty  what makes Black and White homes different that can’t be explained by regional, economic, class differences. Especially American Blacks and Whites, who are far more similar than even they would like to believe (some White Americans tend to actually believe they are more similar to Europeans than their own neighbors-if you can believe it). As you’ve probably guessed, I got no answer. Because she really doesn’t know. She goes on to state:

How can he claim being African-American simply, he wasn’t even raised to experience anything dealing with being African-American?

Because you have to be RAISED to experience blackness. LMAO. So, if a Black child is adopted by Whites, he will be blissfully unaware of his Blackness for the rest of his life. That is, until the evil darkies FORCE him to identify as Black. Mulattoxbeauty, in her naivete, believes it is the Black American political force that MADE him choose Black. Not the fact that he pretty much looks Black and is treated as such. She says:

I personally believe that President Obama was obligated to live up to and take the title of being only African-American. Therefore, I’m sure he knew that when it came to checking his race on his Census form; it was going to be controversial. If Obama, denied being the first African-American President I am sure that a vast majority of the Black Community would be upset with him.

And there it is folks. Someone who does NOT identify as Black, does NOT live in a Black home (by her admission) and I am willing to bet does NOT know the majority of black people, is sure about how the majority of Blacks feel. I bet Michelle withholds sex any time he refers to his White family. I bet Malia shrieks in horror anytime he makes mutt jokes. I bet he’s just pretending (eye roll).

And what’s funny is, she doesn’t see the hypocrisy. She (and others like biracialtiffany) doesn’t see that when you attempt to exercise control over someone else’s choice, you are doing exactly what you say others do to you.

Also, as I stated in my FAQ section, mulattos simply don’t question society-particularly white society-matter when thinking about his decision. Of all the racial vitriol spewed at Obama, is it towards his Whiteness or Blackness? Is it only “half the hate” any other Black man would face? I doubt it. But Mulattoxbeauty is only concerned with those menacing darkies who forced an Ivy-league educated lawyer to be Black.

Tragic Indeed.
