Very lovely piece, my dear friend. Just as Nina said above, I too was curious about your perception of being biracial as it relates to you. If you remember, there was a time I had posed this question to you as we sat with other friends discussing other topics that may or may not have affected at the time. I’m glad you chose to share your thoughts and view points with the world.

This is a wonderful piece and gives remarkable insight into the perspective of growing up biracial in different cultures. Thanks for sharing this BEL!!

Hey, I’m from Brazil and I’ve found your article very interesting. Well, as you want to know, here in my country one is considered “black” as long as he has dark skin along with African physical traits such as: hair texture, thick lips, flat nose, etc. It’s more based on how you look. If you have white ancestors but look pure African, then you will be called “black” here. However, if you look ambiguos or “biracial” you won’t be called ‘black’ by most of people, but “morena”, “mulata”, “mestiça”, etc.

I loved reading this piece. I’ve always wondered about your opinion on your perception of growing up biracial at home (especially after I too came to America and realized I was really black) 😂. Such a great article, deep and poignant!
