Wait.... What Kaep. is black? The last time I looked. He look like he has some Indian in him or part mexican. But black he is not. He has a tan look to his skin. That is it.


Just so you know, Mexican is not a race. It's a country. Lol.

Black people encompass the whole range of colors and facial features. They're black people in Africa, who have never seen a white person in their life (except Anthropologist, Geneticist and other scientist), who are light/of light complexion, with Chinese eyes and straight noses, who scientist say are the oldest living people on earth (such as in Southern and Central, East Africa). So what you're saying doesn't mean much.

Saying all that: Kaepernick has a black and a white parent. And this is the reason why he was called black by some huddler's. I would call him mixed or a mulatto type myself (unless he has wooly hair, which is hard to tell, cause he keeps it cut so low). But then again, anthropologist would say he has a tropical limb build/skeleton and classify his as black. Nonetheless, there are black people with two black parents that can be of lighter complexion. Just as a black parent and a white parent can still produce a black child (phenotypically), even if their genotype is mixed.

It's not always as simple as you make it. And for the record, Native Americans (I think you called them Indians), can range in complexion as well. However, the one's from Mexico are usually much darker (and shorter for that matter). Lol

Where is Kase Klosed? Kaepernick pledged Kappa Psi fraternity in college. That tells me all I need to know of what he sees himself as.

Remember Tiger Woods saying on Oprah that he didn not want to just identify himself as just simply black because he saw it as disrespecting his mother's culture, is what got him in trouble with the black race and used against him by the white race when they were ready to tear him down.

Being Bi-racial in this country is just as complicated as being any other race outside of white...just saying.

Not if this team don't change their overall attitude. No matter what some of the Panthers fans want to believe.

I don't agree about the Obama part of your post. That is a totally different dynamic. Remember the only segment of this country that didn't vote for Obama this time around in larger numbers, like they did the last tme, were the blue-collar white males.Everything else pretty much either grew or stayed the same.

Remember, it wasn't the blacks who created the one drop of black blood makes you automatically black thinking. So, I don't know about the whites accepting multi-ethic folks a lil better.

Anyway, I just believe it's still a matter of how you're seen. I'm sure if Colin was still sitting on a bench, he wouldn't be so accepted by anyone.

Plus, Russel Wilson is multi-ethic and even he had to listen to the whole, "you're too short and should be stuff." How much taller is Drew Brees than Russel?

well lighter skinned blacks tend to be more famous to me??? especially on the woman side.... like most of the lighter blacks was house servants and slave owners wouldnt go as far(hurting) with them compared to a darker slave because alot of times they were kin to them.

remember now that racism became a little of a no no in america...so i guess alot of racist switched from hes a "oh no hes mixed with black" to "well at least he has some white in him.....so maybe hes better than the pure black guy..."

just like i was on a forum one day and a racist guy claimed that all the black scientist who had made great contributions to america were mixed with white or of lighter skinned...meaning they smarter than pure africans....

idk maybe im wrong but it seems like that to me sometimes.
