    If it were legally documented tomorrow that my great-great grandmother was full Cherokee, I would burn the papers.

    not me. let me find out, can you say FREE education?

    I think it's a fair assumption on his part. In his world, maybe there aren't many African-American women who choose to wear their hair naturally, so he assumes you may be from somewhere else. I know where I live, very few women are nappy.

    yep. give it time, people will start seeing nappturals everywhere and there will be no more "what are you" questions.

    i think it&#39;s ignorant. i suppose it&#39;s better to be asked than for people to assume... mainly because people just assume i&#39;m not "straight black" because i have lighter skin and my hair happens to have coil definition. oh, and because i don&#39;t act like a hoodrat... <_<

    what does "straight black" even mean?? My parents are from JA and I&#39;m first generation Canadian. My heritage might have some mix up mix up business in there somewhere, but it all cancelled out (LOL) and there is no mistaking me for anything BUT "straight" black.

    I am Black. Period. But I get the Jamaican/Carribean/African descent question at least twice a week from random strangers as I am going to work :rolleyes: ...because I am adopted and don&#39;t know my birth parents, I can&#39;t rule it out, but as far as I know and am concerned, &#39;straight&#39; Black is what I rep...
    Have a great day,

    It annoys me when people ask me this question, assuming that I&#39;m of &#39;Black with something special thrown in&#39; because otherwise wouldn&#39;t my hair be a disgusting fetid nest of rats? Or almost as bad, assuming that all American Black women have relaxxers/wear horse-hair down to their azzes.
    [/b]
    But isn&#39;t that pretty much the case? I mean I had a cab driver assume I was anything but black American because he said that most black American women he&#39;d dealt with didn&#39;t wear their hair like I did.

    Well, he&#39;s right, no?

    The ones here mostly have braids, r.elaxers, weaves or anything else but their natural hair.

    I still have no idea what "straight black" means. Assuming that means whether I&#39;m multiracial or not, I don&#39;t friggin&#39; know. What I know is I&#39;m black and that&#39;s fine with me.

    No one asks me that here; they&#39;re just freaking out that I&#39;m black

    I&#39;m adopted too, so that&#39;s another wrinkle. I just say I&#39;m black, but again, it&#39;s rare that someone asks me.
