Gurl, no

Biracial people are Black people.

I see what you are saying, but biracial people are Black people too.

You are putting limitations and parameters around Blackness and Black identity, which is insulting and fucking wrong of you to do.

I agree with the assertion that there’s not many biracial characters on TV, but to not let a biracial person play a Black character implies there’s a standard, singular Black experience. Plus, not all biracial people are light skinned. Some of them aren’t white passing. But all of them are Black people.

I’m really disappointed that you feel this way.
