“So finding out that you are bi-racial somehow makes you special in a bad way? I don't believe this story, to much sensationalism about something that is no big deal.”

“If you are not bi-racial, you would never understand. Me, I'm part Roma (Gypsy), part West African, and Native American. My mom was the one mixed with Roma and African. As a child, I never fit in either group -- too Black to be White, and vise versa -- so I just floated around the social periphery. Ever person I meet eventually asks me, "what are you?" My response is typically along the lines of, "...you mean other than human?" People want to classify you in a "group" before they make judgments about how they will deal with you.
I grew up in the south, so I got the "one drop rule" applied to me. My mom could have passed as White, and did when she grew up in the Northeastern part of the US. But when she and my dad moved to Virginia -- she was Black.
So I grew up in the Black community, and identify as such. But if you check my medical records, there are some doctors' notes which say, "Here presents a very pleasant White male...
Lastly, I make my final point with none other than Tiger Wood's case. He is 50% Thai, 25% Black, and 25% White. Here in the states he is referred to as the Greatest African-American golfer. In Thailand, he is the greatest Thai golfer. Funny, the White community says nothing. Not a sensationalist issue, it's reality!”
“This animal is already dead and it is a shame. Notice he is holding the tail with his bare hand, no one should fish that deep. After being pulled up from 500 feet and hung up for pictures it doesn't stand a chance.........go tell the release story to others that believe it.”
“The jews will be the death of us all.............all they want to do is wage war. For Gods sake let us give peace a try. It certainly seems like the other hasn't worked. The whole middle east hates us because we back Israel, i don't say not to, just give peace a chance.”
“I'm quite sure her father set up a very nice trust fund for her, he was one of the richest men in hollywood.”

“I actually think she got screwed out of her inheritance.Not that it's owed.But I don't think Spelling set aside anything special and it went to the control of a Stepmother.I don't like Tori's acting but weirdly I liked her.I always thought of her as sort of growing up with perceived privilege none of which she really got and this obligation to be in a life and career that didn't really speak to her talents or personality and never getting to figure out what those might be.But I actually think of her as a real duck in a fake pond.She was maybe wrong in her description of Holmes but that level of cold-shoulder is kind of hard to take especially when it might have been about Tori not being considered A-list.Tori is well aware of that stuff.And it might smart.”
