In the January 29 issue of the New York Times, I was met with the news that the biracial and multiracial classes are still as confused about their identify as they’ve always been. The self-indulgent 2.0 version of “Imitation of Life” reared its ugly head for the gazillionth time in a four page spread where mixed race kids (again) lamented their victimhood and difficulty belonging.
Given the author's picture, I see she is another self-indulgent mulatto elite trying to "prove" her alleged "blackness." She is also doing a lot of projecting, since "black" Americans are almost synonymous with victimhood. If she hates whiteness so much, why does she insist that ALL part-black multiracials (She ignored the ones in the original New York Times article who didn't claim any African ancestry) are members of "the black community," even if they have nothing to do with that "community."
Now, however, thanks to biracials and multiracials, race has become a purity game where those who wear the albatross of blackness have gotten increasingly darker. Soon it will only be the blackest of the black who are forced to wade in the dense fog of racial certainty. I know that many biracial folk who read this will feel that they’re being picked on by myself and others when the truth is, we’re just tired of you and your victimhood. The collective of humanity has mixed race fatigue and is tired of you making a spectacle of yourself and your imagined suffering.
I've said it before. One of the motives for "blacks" supporting forced hypodescent is the fear of becoming TOO BLACK - which ain't considered "beautiful," no matter how much they shout that slogan to the skies.
