Being the mother of a black

FATHERS IN FAMILIES. The family structure of Black children in differed drastically from the White population. Whereas of % of White children under age 18 live with both parents, only % of Black children do; 5 % live with their mother. Being the mother of a black child aint a easy thing you have to call on Jesus and listen to the angel sing. For those of you have raised them up or are in the process now. You surely deserve to stand up and take a bow. Rufus and his mother apparently became very good friends with Paul later on. Paul referred to Rufus' mother as being like a mother to him (Rom ). Philip helped convert to the Lord a eunuch, who was an official of Candace, queen of Ethiopia (Acts ).

R on May 20, at 4: My mom is white, my dad is bi-racial, my parents are divorced. I really resent that still. Its really irresponsible and takes advantage of their children. Rmixed kids are welcome in the black community, but they could tell if the childs mother is white because white women dont know how to take care of afro type hair…but you may be right about people having children by blacks or whites, because they want a tan baby…Sometimes the kids are very light with kinky hair and black features.

The mother still lives with the father and they never married: The girls have boyfriends now that are mixed themselves but they are from healthier families hannah on June 14, at 4: I have 2 mixed children- 4 and 6.

I am caucasian and their father is Haitian. Neither child was planned, but loved nevertheless. They are strikingly beautiful. They have never been, nor have I, approached about their race in a negative way. Their teachers tell me they are very intelligent. They have classmates of various cultures even tho the area is predominantly white.

I allow them to be what they choose. It truly is a shame that there seems to be a need for many people to use labels. I will say that my husband and I have been separated for years and my children live solely with me. This means they spend more time with my caucasian side of the family, but still see their Haitian relatives.

Both families are loving and supportive. My immediate family are my babysitters. Even my grandmother, who I have heard say she does not condone interracial relationships previously, loves my children and treats them wonderfully.

She also accepts the childrens father. I suppose I have been lucky to not have racial issues. I hope for the future everyone realizes that we all are mixed in one way or another and that none of that matters.

This white moms need to take better care of their mixed childs hair is ridiculus! I am a white mom of a mixed child. My husband and have a beautiful 2 yr old daughter. If you asked me how to do her hair I would have to say I am still trying to figure it out.

So please ppl who want to complain write a book or instruction manual. Although I am not black no one could love my black husband and daughter more than me. I just dont know where to start when it comes to my daughters hair. Deal with it or help out.

I am a mom of three mixed kids. When sometimes my daughters hair looks better and neater then theirs???? Yes, all these as the world has changed over the years.

My mother is White and Catholic and French Canadian with eastern european ancestry and american ancestry. As you can see race is not as simple as black and white. BTW, mullato is insulting and bi-racial two races only excludes people like myself who have a mixed race ancestry.

Unless and until you are familiar with the history of Blacks in North America and race relations in your City, Province and Country then you are at a loss in raising children of African American, African Canadian, Carribean or Black backgrounds.

It is about culture and socialization which is different in each group, language and occasionally religion. You are what you are and who you are.

You identify with those most like you racially, socially and culturally. White mothers who have lived in a white environment, are socialized white and culturally white are at a loss to be able to fully understand what it is to walk int he shoes of their children who are of mixed race.

As I have fair coloured eyes and my skin colour is no longer brown like Michael Jackson my skin colour has lightened over the years, but my hair colour has darkenedI am well spoken and as I have no carribean roots and am born in Canada like my parents, and grandparents, and great-grandparents, and great great grandparents I have no accent I have been privy to more racial slurrs and racial remarks than I care to remember.

Also, being the “black sheep” makes us realize that we aren’t seen as being worthy of support or kindness. My cousin, the golden child (who is herself the product of a narcissistic mother) is loved and supported by our family, including friends of the family.
