Yeah, I'm (mostly) black. In high school they used to constantly ask me, "are you sure you're black?" due to my hair being less coarse/nappy and being light-skinned. I was further teased because I listened to rock music ("white music") and did well academically. You wouldn't think that those things would be an issue, but for some reason people hated that and therefore I was labeled as an "Oreo." Luckily I understood that those people are not the majority.
that's interesting, only because i just read this article about how middle-class blacks are looked-down upon or whatever by lower-class blacks; i.e. if you're black and grow up in the suburbs, you're not "as black" or whatever as someone who lives in the projects. there's also a problem with wanting to be academically successful vs athletically successful as a black person.
this reminds me of a debate i had with my sister about this story we heard on the radio about this mixed-race guy who had "grown up white" and whether that was a cultural or economic thing.
