    I mean, lets look at Nichole Richie (Lionel Richoe's daughter) and Djimon Hounsou. Both are black, and yet...
    .... Nicole Richie was adopted...

    Nicole Richie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Nicole Camille Richie (born Nicole Camille Escovedo; September 21, 1981) is an American socialite and television personality. The adopted daughter of soul singer Lionel Richie, she is perhaps best known for her role in the Fox reality television series The Simple Life, alongside fellow socialite and childhood best friend Paris Hilton.

    She is adopted; she is the biological child of a friend of Richie's, and is of mixed race.

    I thought her father was Mexican and her mother was white?

    Yes, blacks are, in the sense that they are from many cultures and races.

    No, in sense that being from multiple cultures and races makes a person inferior.

    So, it depends on which of these is meant. So, it depends on the context. Of who said it and in what conversation and what else they said alongside it. Does this answer your question, Goobieman?

    See post #5. It was made clear very early on that he term was used in regard to the former, not the latter.

    Nearly all of us in the USA have mixed blood..me, I am English, Irish, Scot, and Dutch...
    Not real happy about the Irish part.

    Iceland, IIRC, tries to keep its race "unmixed", as do the French. We should thank the French for that. It is good for them to keep inbreeding, that way they won't mess up the lives of the Non French...

    BTW, that was sarcasm, for those who don't have a sarcasm detector...

    Which is why I answered yes to the poll. Just as we all are. He was using the phrase in a light hearted manner. Stupid on his part given all the people waiting to pounce, but otherwise inconsequential.

    The qiuestion is - why isn't it good enough for you?
    I consider myself a bitch but do not take kindly to others calling me that. You picking up what I am putting down yet?
