I'm a student at UF writing a paper on Affirmative Action. I've gotten a lot of feedback from whites and Asians, but very few responses from other minority groups.
I was wondering if I could just get:
3. Are you for/against AA?
Thanks so much :)

Hello, my name is Shylicia, but everyone calls me Shy. I am new here and do not really know what to say so here goes anything. I consider myself Black, even if my background is mixed with other cultures, races and nationalities. I am part Black, Native american, and Costa Rican. I have been raised in all of those cultures. However when I am in front of people they just consider me Black.I am a college state in New Hampshire but I am from Boston. I go to Plymouth State for marketing.
I guess thats it for now.

|clare1969||04:06 pm - Pro Black and Pro Feminist - an oxymoron?|
Can a Black man be both conscious/ pro black and also strongly believe in gender equality? - I am just finding that so many 'conscious' men seem to be against gender equality and anti-feminist.

Hi everyone, I'm new to this community.
About me: Race, racism and racial identity are of interest to me since they have played a large role in the person I am today. While I identify as Black, and experience the world as a Black person, I am technically "biracial" (not keen on this term but can't think of an alternative!) I believe that the BLACK biracial person is in a unique situation in terms of experiencing racism as a Black person, yet having been raised by a white parent. Thus as a Black "mixed race" individual, I don’t share the experiences of many "mixed folk" with regard to the “what are you?” question that people who are acknowledged as mixed race may get, and I can't relate to the experiences of mixed race individuals who pass for white. At the same time, I have faced issues growing up such as racism from white relatives and general "over exposure" to white people that the average Black person doesn't have to confront.

We created Crayon People to act as a place for People of Color to get easy access to news ranging from political articles to current pop culture. Check out the new articles from your own relevant group (Arab, Asian, Black, Latino Desi), but feel free to discuss articles in the People of Color area as well as other groups. Posting comments and discussing the articles is the point to this whole website.
We want people from diverse backgrounds to converse and debate in a constructive environment. So please help us spread the word. We are a non-profit site, so basically that means we have a $0 promotion budget, unlike these other corporation giants. But please let us know what you think. Sign on post some comments and help make this good thing happen:).

Hi, I'm new. My name's Lauren, and I'm really happy about this community. Intelligent people and good rhetoric make me squee inside.
However, was I completly off my rocker for thinking this? It didn't make much sense to post in the Oreo's community, (obviously,) but that was the only community full of black people that I had open to me at the time.
