"I have bi-racial hair because I have bi-racial blood. And I’m not talking about that cute “They met and fell in love” blood. I’m talking about that slave raped 6 times by the master,birthed 6 mixed babies and later hung, blood. I’m talking about that cross burning in the mud,blood. And you call me a mud blood? Slit my wrists, my blood does not excrete in black and white. I bleed in verse and in red, like what dripped from Emmett Till’s lips when he was killed for breaking the colored lines."

Bi Racial Hair Poem (via blck-grrl)

I remember watching the video this is from a couple years ago and just trembling. So much truth in this. This is why I do not take it as an inherent compliment when people comment on my mixed race appearance.

This is a very sad truth. Even though my father is mixed because of “they met and fell in love blood”, I am sure on my mother’s side…like most black people in America, I am mixed with other things because of this.
